I have this little problem...

Visible Monday, again! Thanks to Patti at Not Dead Yet Style, as always.
I really love this suede jacket. I’ve only had it for a few weeks, but it’s rocketed to the top tier of my all-time thrift scores already. I almost rejected it for being a bit too big, but then decided to go for it anyway, because I’m sure a time will come when I’ll be happy to wear it over a heavier jumper, and I haven’t regretted it.
I had a pretty good weekend. We got another 3 cubic metres of mulch spread in the garden, and on Saturday afternoon I went to a vintage fair in Liverpool. Lots of ’80s vintage stuff — you could hardly move for gigantic shoulder pads and butt-ruffles — which isn’t my style, and anyway, I’ve definitely already been there and done that. (The 80s were my high school and college years.) I did pick up a pair of men’s vintage 501 cut-offs, and the fit confirms my suspicion that if I want really snug-fitting thighs in my next pair of shrink-to-fit 501s, men’s are probably the way to go.
Details:
Suede jacket: Thrifted, remixed.
Scarf: Long since detagged. I think I got this at H&M.
Skirt: Vintage, no tags. The vintage fair I went to on Saturday is a regularly-occurring one (it takes place at The Bluecoat in Liverpool, if any locals are passing through), and I bought this at the previous one. I really love the print and the colours and the ribbon panels.
Tights: Dorothy Perkins, remixed. I didn’t quite have the right kind of hot pink to match the ribbons in the skirt, so I went with olive instead.
Bag: Fossil, remixed.
Boots: Malmo, Duo, remixed.
Do go check out the others at Visible Monday; it’s always well-worth the click.
