It may only be the 5th of February, but it’s already shaping up to be an excellent month for thrifting. Before snow engulfed the country and I went into hibernation with udon noodles and a bottle of Rioja, I nipped out for a quick look round my favourite charity shops. Here are some of the things I came back with…
Even second hand shoppers are not immune to the impulse buy. This beauty was sitting next to the counter as I paid for my other goodies and even thought it was a bit overpriced, I couldn’t resist. It’s over the top, ridiculously girly and highly impractical with a kitten who likes to knock things over, but I love it.
My limited photography skills can’t capture the true colour of this pretty pleated skirt – it’s more of a bright plum purple. I plan to wear it at waist level with a leather belt, a neon tee and killer heels.
I’m in LOVE with this amazing vintage holdall – anything featuring Betty Boop is a winner in my book. The outside is fabulously kitsch while inside is roomy enough for all those weekend away essentials. I’ve bookmarked this as my carry-on when we fly to Chicago later this year.
So that’s what I found – have you been second hand shopping this weekend? Pick up any brilliant bargains?
