In fact I almost bought a whole outfit, had it not been for my indecisiveness on footwear. Having been unable to get any Orla Kiely for Uniqlo online, I was over the moon to be able to get a Cars top and flower scarf in the real life shop; (I have a bit of a handbag collection going on, so this is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay cheaper!).
I also bought jeans. Real jeans, proper denim, boyfriend cut, perfect fit, no buggering about! Thank you Next, for not being entirely full of jeggings! I don't know about you, but jeggings should be illegal for those over 21! There were way too many "ladies", the wrong side of 40, all jegged-up wandering the shopping centre. Oh my eyes!
No trip to Bluewater would be complete without John Lewis though, so more cheap as chips Joel Dewberry and some self-cover buttons for a plan; I may have stroked the FMF bolts, I'm not telling...
I even bought a CD - you know those old-fashioned shiny things that actually make you feel like you own the music. Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds was my soundtrack to September; if you are not familiar, or think you aren't, please check this out...
And finally the sewing aid. I admit defeat, old age (42) and decrepitude and now sport a super-sewing sleuth magnifying glass that Sherlock would be jealous of.

So there you have a glimpse of not only my trip but what I will be wearing, listening to and stitching this autumn xxx
