When I work Sat/Sun I usually get Mon/Tue off, so its like my own personal weekend (shopping without crowds, quiet gym, eh...rain...). Therefore here's my 'weekend' outfits and bargains from a quick scoot round the charity shops.
Topshop cardi - £28 many moons ago
H&M top - £5 in sale
Vintage skirt - £3.50 charity shop
Nine West heels - £3 charity shop
Kinda fell in love with the heart buttons...
These shoes still had the original stickers on - £3 instead of £65 for brand new Nine West shoes in my size? God was on my side that day :)
Topshop Tall cardi - £30ish...?
Doogie Houser Tshirt - $25 from NBC store in New York (my mum and I LOVED this show when I was a kid so was thrilled to find this! Neil Patrick Harris rocks!)
H&M skirt - £15ish (one of the oldest things in my wardrobe!)
Converse - birthday gift last year
I heart Converse :)
Some fab finds
Found this handmade vintage dress for £2.95 yesterday, it was massive and a little...thready... but after a whizz on the sewing machine and some added elastic, it fits perfectly!
(totally needed another summer dress....)
This one was actually from that magic £1 rail the other day but since its pure silk, I left it for Mother to wash (domestic Goddess I ain't). Quite like it actually, altho I wanna change the colour of the waist ribbon
Unfortunately the weather looked like this when I put the shorts on. Sigh.
So in the cheapie shop I got 5 things from the 10p table, 2 recent magazines and a book - total? 70p :D
Ok this one is sad but exciting so thought I'd share anyway. Many, many years ago I was given the red jigsaw for Christmas and as you can probably see from the box, built it many times - and actually really wanted to visit the real version of that seaside town! So I knew there was another puzzle in the series but after looking half heartedly for it for years I kinda forgot all about it. Until the other day when I walked into my fave charity shop and there it was sitting on one of the high shelves. Yes I grabbed for it. Loser. It set me back a whole 50p and now I'm rather pleased with myself (the lady tried to get me to take 3 for £1 but I wasn't to be persuaded!)
May all your summers be as nice as this one!
