H&M jeans, Urban Outfitters blouse, Primark tee, thrifted cardigan, Converse boots, earrings from my jewellery box
Hooray for days off work! Today I’m chilling out at home, waiting for the Mr to return. And when he does, we’re packing a bag, jumping in the car and going to stay at a luxury apartment in the beautiful city of York. No matter that it’s only 45 mins away from our actual house, or that we grew up in York so know the place like the backs of our respective hands – it’s a freebie early Valentine’s Day weekend away! Rob built a website for the lady who owns the apartment and she very nicely offered it to us for free whenever we wanted.
Today’s outfit favours function over fashion, but that suited my dash around the local charity shops just fine.
Okay, I’d admit. I haven’t just been chilling out at home, waiting for the Mr to return. I’ve been… shopping. Eeeep! But thrift shopping, so does that count? I think not!
Topshop tuxedo blazer, £5
Ornate standing mirror, £1.49
Gold bird brooch, £2.99
Polaroid Joycam, 99p
I’m so pleased with my mini haul! I never have much luck at charity shops and although the prices aren’t exactly amazing, I think I got some real bargains. The Topshop tux blazer is brand new and fits like a dream. The mirror is a little dirty – any ideas how to clean it up a bit? I was thinking a dab of white spirit and some gentle rubbing. The brooch is so cute and will look perfect pinned to a lapel. And the camera! I’ve wanted a proper Polaroid camera for YEARS. I’m not really sure where to get the film from – eBay? Ah, even if I can’t get any film or it doesn’t work, it was worth it for 99p.
