I'm off work today, enjoying a long weekend. Yesterday I returned from a lovely couple of days in Edinburgh.

One of the highlights of the weekend was finding an amazing charity shop, a few minutes from our hotel. These days, I find most of these places are full of Primark cast-offs, but this was the kind of charity shop I dream about. They had a whole table of vintage Liberty scarves for under a tenner, and loads of great vintage clothes, obviously donated by a wealthy local.

My best bargain was a vintage 1970s yellow silk Burberry pussy-bow blouse. I also got a cute 1980s white frill-necked blouse and one of the Liberty scarves.
