Re: Your latest purchases, cont.



I just bought a pair of these on a super sale. The Vasque Mantra 2.0 hiking shoe. Excellent all around for hiking. Very comfortable with top notch performance. I'm really happy I got these (coming from a guy that almost always used to buy Timberland for hiking shoes).

Some dinner(delivery) because I didn't feel like cooking anything tonight.

I got these to wear at my sister's wedding and I'm so excited about them. They are ridiculously sparkly in person, especially the bangle.

I had two Coldwater Creek coupons--each giving me 40% one item. So I went back today and picked up two things I really wanted:

This green cowlneck:


and this chocolate brown cardigan:

Three more action figures at the toy shop along with a quick stop by a restaurant for some takeout lunch.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Had a bit of downtime this afternoon, so initially went window-shopping and then ended up buying a navy cashmere overcoat from Zegna.

I've been meaning to get a new navy coat for a couple of years or so but couldn't find exactly what I wanted, largely because I tried looking during the end of the season sales and so never found something in exactly the size & style I wanted. This time I happened to stumble upon some new season stock just as it arrived. It was a bit more expensive than ideal but at least I've got exactly what I wanted. Probably will wait until the autumn to get the few minor alterations it needs though. No point getting those done in the middle of Summer!

I bought a Panama hat. It's a bit too hot here for felt hats at the moment.

^Looks a bit like one of the many hats that Angel wears in Dexter good choice.

I bought some cranberry juice on the way home from the gym.

Yeah, I guess even Indy can't wear a felt hat all the time!

I was wearing one of my Panamas today too. They're a very easy hat to wear, especially once they get a bit battered with age. I have a knockabout one that's been in several tropical oceans and is now showing a lovely bit of wear & tear. Though I also have a smarter-looking one like yours that can be worn with those kind of looks.




I finally caved in and decided to upgrade from regular broadband to fibre optic. It's a FTTC connection and they've quoted me 71.4Mb download for my specific line, so I'm hoping it gets at least somewhere close to that. Mind you that would be about 20 times faster than my current connection, so even half that would be big difference! It only ended up being an extra £3-ish a month so hopefully it'll be a worthwhile purchase. Won't be installed until towards the end of the month, but I suppose I'm used to waiting when it comes to internet, so...
