Lunch with Miss Posh Flat Cap & Whippets .... and Tassels.




I went out for lunch a few weeks back with Claire. Claire's a lovely reader who has been in touch with me and whilst conversing, we found out that we don't actually live that far from each other. It turns out she's actually a soft southerner who's moved up "north" and lives in what we deem a "posh" part of Yorkshire. So I call her Miss Posh Flat Cap and Whippets. You don't mind do you Claire?

So a lunch meet meant another outing for the white Zara jacket. I've worn it twice now. Cost per wear so far - not good but ask me in five years and it will be down to pennies. Or a tenner a wear at least. Everything on here has been seen before. But I just wanted to bring your attention to the tassels on my bag. 


The joy of perfect tassels. 


I love these tassels. They give me joy ... and something to fiddle with. They are so neat and tidy and precise - they satisfy that strange weirdo perfectionist part of my brain.  I bought the bag almost purely for the tassels and I have judged all bag tassels by these tassels since - seriously I am that anal and sad about such things. And given that the bag is around 8 years old, the bag and it's tassels are holding up well. I think that's enough about tassels.

Anyway, I had a lovely girly day with Claire where we had a good old chatter and she said I wasn't actually that quiet. And do you know why? Because there is no one else there to do the talking for me. Put me in a group and I am the quiet one with nothing interesting to say so I sit there quietly and take it all in. Put me in a 1-2-1 scenario - I have to do some work. Told you I was lazy.

Anyway, we had lunch, we shopped and we had drinks. Well just the one. A nice G&T in the Victoria Quarter. We would have had more but Claire needed to get home for an evening do. But next time, we can start earlier on the G&T's right?  Lovely to meet you Claire!


Bombay Sapphire please!

  1. I love your bag and I love the tassles! I have no bags with tassles, so I bought separate tassles and hung them on one bag and on my key chain. I do worry that the tassles will get bent out of shape though, they need to look perfect ;)

    I don't think I have seen the Araline before, is it discontinued?

    "Put me in a group and I am the quiet one with nothing interesting to say so I sit there quietly and take it all in. Put me in a 1-2-1 scenario - I have to do some work." Haha, that is me as well. It's the introvert in me, I can't see the point in fighting to get a word in when I am just as comfortable with being quiet ;)

    1. It's long discontinued. It was my first expensive bag purchase after I had Ben and it was reduced at that. But the tassels - they got me hook line and sinker. I have to say, that after 7 years or so of having the bag - the tassels have never bent out of shape - I have been careful - but even when I haven't, they have stayed true.

      And I am naturally quiet - I don't believe in saying something for the sake of it if it's not really required. I am very much an introvert as well. It might not come across as the blog but that's because on a blog - you have to express yourself through words - you can't be quiet. Well you can and post lots of pictures but with no words to back them up - it gets a little boring in my eyes. Your blog is a wonderfully engaging read - it always gives me something to think about.

  4. OK, I'm very jealous of your afternoon of relaxing fun. Its also good for the soul to justify spending per wear;)It works out eventually. Love the bag and the tassels too.

    1. Mine usually works itself out after languishing in my wardrobe for around 10 years. I do the slow burn thing.

  5. Oh I have to admit that I haven't worn mine much either, it really is the cold weather here and I always feel a little silly wearing something so white with black and then black tights. Loving the way you wore it, sound like you had a good time with your friend too!

    1. It's much harder to wear white in the winter months. And currently, it is too hot to wear a jacket. Well it has been these last couple of days - long may it last.

  6. Oh I love a good tassel! I bought a clutch in the Oasis sale last year and it too has the most perfect tassels which just please me for no particular reason! Love the jacket .. I'm guessing you'll get lots of wear out of it.

    1. I have little spates of wearing a particular item - it will come in to it's own.
