And my new purchase…
It has been over half a year since I last visited my family at home in Somerset. 2012 has really flown by! Each time I come back, a new shop will have closed..other than that, it remains exactly the same as it has in my 22 years living here.
Anybody that knows my little town, Shepton Mallet, will probably be sniggering at the thought of taking outfit photos in the town centre – it’s not exactly deemed picturesque (unless empty shops are your thang). In fact, we were able to snap away undisturbed, as it’s practically a ghost town at the weekend. It’s so sad to see such a historic place looking so unloved. Perhaps it takes moving away to busy London and coming back again to realise it’s potential – it’s such a pretty place, despite it’s flaws. I’m sure many of you will have similar stories about your hometowns, too?
One credit to Shepton is Mulberry. With the factory situated a stone’s throw away, and the factory shop a mere walk away from my house, it’s become a tradition to head down to the shop on the 27th to see if I can hunt something down in the sale. This year I spent my Christmas money on this coat – one I had long admired since spotting it at my first Mulberry show. £99 down from around £800 – not bad, eh? As far as I’m concerned, a girl can never have too many coats!
If you’re ever visiting the South West, please do pop by – the carrot cake at Kilver Court isn’t to be missed! x
