Happy Sunday gang! Today I’m jumping on the fashion blogger bandwagon and giving you a haul post… second hand style! Here are some of my thrifty finds from the last few weeks – my favourite car boot has closed for winter (boo) but I’ve found a new (indoor!) one to explore every Sunday, and of course the charity shops are still bursting with unloved garments looking for a new home.
I picked up this Wallis dress coat at a car boot sale for £2. It’s 100% wool and perfect for throwing over fancy dresses on chilly nights out. It needs a dry clean and a new button, but other than that it’s pristine.
You’ve seen this one before but it was such a good find, I thought it deserved another showing. A faux fur coat for £7.99 from my favourite charity shop? Yes please.
I know, I know… another jacket? I simply couldn’t resist this vintage Episode number, with it’s square necklace and cropped shape. It was £5 from – where else? – my favourite charity shop.
I snapped this cute Topshop blouse up yesterday – it’s another charity shop find and was £3. I love the Peter Pan collar and dainty buttons.
My first trip to the indoor car boot sale uncovered this dapper felt trilby. It was made by Lincoln Bennett & Co, hatters to the Royal Family based in Piccadilly, London. A snip at £2.
My favourite find of all is this beautiful dressing table set. The wonderful Vix tells me it’s probably from the 1950s – sets like these were often given as 21st birthday presents. It’s perfectly preserved in its satin box, each pretty piece unused. I paid £1 for it from a lovely old couple and actually asked if they wanted a bit more, but they were insistent I should take it.
I’ve been very lucky with my finds over the last few weeks. Have you unearthed any treasures on your travels?
