It's that time of year again: time for fleece lined tights! Four years ago I was sending away to Korea for these, but now you can buy them in NZ, even at The Warehouse. Now that the cold has hit, I'm looking back fondly at a post I did for another blog. Rug Up, Mate at It's A Wellington Life is all about how we dress in the winter here. "Who would buy a tissue-thin merino cardigan? A ¾ sleeve unlined wool coat? A chunky but sleeveless gilet? Layer Lady, that’s who." What happens to your clothing when you donate it to a thrift store? A glimpse behind the scenes. What happens to your clothing when...you die? Two years ago, after a dear friend died, I helped her daughter sort out the "good vintage" in her wardobe. Here's a thoughtful piece about a woman responsible for her grandmother's wardrobe. Link courtesy of The Dreamstress.

  1. I’m sure I’ve seen those fleece tights for sale somewhere other than the Warehouse too, but can’t remember where. In any case, the Warehouse is likely the cheapest source. Thanks for reminding me that they exist, because I should introduce my mother to them. She feels the cold.
