I’m so pleased with the amount of thrifted items in this outfit. One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to buy more thrifted and vintage items. Here’s where they all came from…
Dark brown leather plaited belt with brass buckle, £5
I picked this up at a vintage shop in Sheffield called Cow. Possibly the best vintage shop I’ve ever been in – loads of beautiful pieces at such reasonable prices.
Gold bangle, £1
I recently found this bangle hiding at the bottom of my jewellery basket after it went missing for 4 months. I got it from an RSPCA shop in Leeds one Saturday, then went for tea and cake afterwards to celebrate the find!
Black stone cocktail ring, 50p
This was from a very messy, tangled jewellery box rummage at a car boot sale in Leeds. I think it’s actually originally from Primark as it’s very similar to my other cocktail rings from there. Still, I love this ring and wear it often.
Faux fur leopard print swing jacket, £25
This is my first thrifted piece of 2010, if we’re counting eBay as thrifting (which I am!). It was only delivered yesterday and I am utterly thrilled with it – it’s gorgeously soft and very cosy, with a sweet swing shape and 3/4 sleeves. It was a little musty-smelling upon arrival, but plenty of Febreeze later and it’s like new!
Have you found any thrilling thrifted pieces in 2010? Share them with me!
