Little red riding hood

March 6, 2011

Yesterday afternoon my lovely pal, the Curious Cat (check out her musings here), came to visit.  We hit the Bicycle shop for afternoon coffee (a large glass of Pinot) and cake.   Right opposite the cafe is a gorgeous vintage boutique called Prim, and with the Curious Cat visiting all the way from London, I thought it would be rude not to show her the joys Norwich has to offer.

I really do not have the cash to spend on a late 1960’s post-box red cape, but as we stepped into Prim, from the overspilling iron rail, it cried out to me,

I am so very warm (and pretty)’. And so I thought – as a compromise – I should probably try it on.  Egged on by it’s oh so beautifully detailed buttons and frankly immaculate lining, I made my way to the changing room.  When my friend, other friend and the two shop assistants gasped like I’d just pulled the curtain back and stepped out in the wedding dress, I knew the coat and I were going to have a VERY painful goodbye.

So I bought it.  Partly because I manage to haggle with the kind owner, but mainly because I am just IN LOVE with it.
