Thrifty Finds & Recent Buys

 I've been a bit MIA recently, just been very busy and not really felt like documenting my life! However, I have a day off and I thought I'd indulge in one of my favourite past times, charity shop trawling! I managed to find a vintage camel blazer in Oxfam and two lovely little bags recently, both under £3. I also seem to have become hair accessory obsessed...I found the polka dot hair bands in Peacocks and New Look, and the cute little bird one in the Topshop sale for £1.50. The other items are from my recent trip to Southampton shopping center a few weeks ago, plus a sneaky trip to Urban Outfitters last Saturday... oops! I couldn't resist the grey flannel shirt though, it's really thick and warm, perfect for the colder weather we seem to be getting. I got the dress on the right from Topshop, my first size 12, and the print is adorable! The checked shirt-dress is from the Chelsea Girl consession in River Island, it fits well and has long sleeves, I am a bit obsessed with checks/plaid etc, so finding this was perfect! It also comes with a brown belt which is useful, as I seem to lose belts.

 I'm only working for 3 days this week, as Goodwood Revival is on Friday!! It seems to have come around so quickly! I have an original 1960s dress, plus a fur stole to wear, I will be doing a huge post on the festival and I hear there are loads of vintage stalls, so I'm expecting to come home with some goodies! Expect LOTS of pictures too :)

 In other news: my hair is nearly the desirable platinum shade, it went a little wrong at the hair dressers last week, so I have been offered a free toning treatment on Wednesday. It was one of the most stressful trips I have ever had to a salon, and it wasn't really what I expected. Basically the bleach wasn't washed out properly and my hair didn't lift as expected, so hopefully this free treatment will sort it out! Anyway, I'm going to have some tea now and try and extract the film from my Pentax, cannot wait to get it developed!



  1. Oh damn those bags are lovely. My vintage satchel broke yesterday. Gutted.

  2. Oh no! Get charity shopping, I'm sure you'll find a nice 'new' one for a nice price :) xx
