playground fashion

Yesterday in the playground after school I was talking to Trish, and Fleur came along, looking gorgeous as usual.  She’s had 4 kids and I don’t know how she does it.  Well she did give me a clue.   I recall our conversation once where she expounded on how much she loves the gym.  I think this might be the key to bouncing back … hmm … not really rocket science … but very good for me to note … again.  Yes, I should go to the gym.

Anyway,  we started discussing shoes.  I admired hers.  And she explained that she ‘organises’ a Mother’s Day present that takes the form of shoes from the shop Cinori in Clifton Hill every year.  And as I have a bit of a shoe fetish, and this fetish used to centre around the Wonders brand that Cinori imports from Portugal, the conversation carried on.

We then moved on to her jeans, I liked the zips, and she told us that she bought them on Ebay for $5, and then couldn’t resist mentioning that her jacket came from the op shop in preparation for going to the snow (last weekend).  What a great find.  $5 again.  It is from lululemon (originally).  It  has a micro-polar fleece lining.  Perfect for the snow.   As Trish noted, it would have cost a couple of hundred bucks new.  Good work Fleur!

Anyway, as I hadn’t done a post for today, I whipped out my phone and took a few snaps.

Nice shoes huh?  Great jeans – I really want some with zips!  Excellent jacket.  An outfit for $10 – if you don’t count the Mother’s Day spend … but you don’t have to, because that’s a present.  Pretty good!
