No Cash More Boot

Fellow MA student and make up artist Suzanne Neita is a great inspiration when it comes to no spending. Quite simply Suzanne is a 'if you have no money then you can't buy' type of gal. She choose an education after years of toil at M&S and after an access course, degree, now a Masters (it's ok I made her pay her library fine) she on her way to Phd land.

But more than this Suzanne is uber car booter. She finds the great, the glamorous and the groovy. Whilst those young gals are mildly rocking a harem pant or two, Suzanne is wielding a full leather version circa 1949.


I only had my blackberry handy and I know I'm no Scott or Garance but I had the perfect setting in the banqueting hall at Chelsea Art College. My shot doesn't do justice to the leather and the cut. These leather jodhpurs or plus fours vintage numbers herald from Germany originally and were bought for a few pounds at a car boot.

It was a good reminded to me to keep focused on not spending what I haven't got, and ensuring I keep at the payback on my student debts.

  5. Now those are some leather pants! They remind me of the German officers pants in the film Valkyrie (which I assume were period correct) - very good tailoring.

  12. Your picture shows that she's a girl with great spirit (and cool trousers). There is no fun in spending money you don't have and good finds like this can last forever.
