I had a date with the Sun....

...but by the time I got home from work this morning it had gone, ditched me, done a runner!!  So I popped in on a few op shops to console myself.

Amongst my finds today, Green tunic, much brighter than the photo and great layering piece (from Salvo city central).  Floral 3/4 sleeve tunic,  Animal print tunic and Batik cropped jacket (all from Look Smart on T straight and still on 1/2 price this week).  Patchwork maxi skirt I found last week (Savemart) and forgot to share, and the gorgeous maxi dress (from Remains to be scene $2 bin) is heading overseas shortly!  Everything priced between $2 and $6.

The small basket I found for .50cent and it has my little girls small eggs in it that are going to be given to one of the blokes I work with as he has young kids and they are after all kid sized eggs.  The ornaments and the Jesus bracelet were all only $1 each at Hospice in town, has a new manager with a fabulous plan to be known as the cheapest op shop in town!  The rather lovely patchwork shoulder bag was $2.50 from Look Smart last week, I had one of these when I was a teenager.  Last but by no means least a fabulous scarf.

So what did I wear for my date with the Sun?  A very gorgeous lace coat (Look Smart) over a long dress all being blown around in the breeze that had arrived after Sunshine buggered off!!  Now I here we are due to get a Spring storm tonight, EXCELLENT!!  Shall not be getting all dolled up for that!!  Note my girls and Sheba all tutuing about in the background!
