SHOPPING YESTERDAY

Wednesday, August 25, 2010
Sorry I haven't updated in so long! I've been meaning to write something but I haven't been shopping because I've run out of money! Well ok, I went shopping yesterday with the money I got back from selling my old clothes on ebay. British summer seems to of decided its ended and we've skipped autumn and gone straight into winter; so I like to refrain from trying on lots of clothes and taking photos, which is a very cold activity unless the radiators are turned up really high. Which means these photos aren't very good, but I'm sure you'll see them in better detail sometime soon on lookbook.


Which reminds me, get yourself down to the charity shops right now, they all have sales on!

Both of these blouses were in the sale at the Salvation Army. The pale blue/ lilac lace collar blouse was reduced to £1 and the really cool 80's kinda print top was £1.50 I had seen it a few weeks ago and thought that it was really cool but it was £3.00 and I thought that was a bit silly because its only a cropped blouse! but seeing as they reduced it I decided I would get it!
















I also found these vintage Armani jeans! I don't know if I'm going to wear them or not, there the same style as the highwaisted turn up levi jeans Urban Outfitters were selling.. or may still be selling I'm not sure I'd have to check the website. Either way, I already have a similar pair except mine are lighter, but I still might sell these ones. They smell and look like they've never been worn!

My boyfriend bought most of this playsuit for me, it was also from a charity shop but I was a bit put off by the price but he said he'd give me £3 towards it which I took reluctantly (I hate it when he buys me stuff haha!) Its a size 14 so it really needs to be adjusted a lot to fit me but its so pretty! Also you can just see the cris-cros detail across the back of the playsuit (I forgot to take a photo) but it goes from shoulder to shoulder and its so nice! So I'm hoping I'll be able to change it so that it fits me because its sooo beautiful!

Also speaking of altering clothes, last week I went to my second cousins wedding and I decided to wear the blue dress which I posted before the ebay update. I altered the length and I also took the waist in a bit seeing as it was a size 18 but it turned out really well! (despite the fact my mom said it was too short haha)













I wore it with the black fur coat I got at a car boot sale a few months ago and some pale pink/lilac/nude shoes my nan gave me.

The photos of all the other items I bought weren't very good so I'll re take those and post them another time! However seeing as you can see them anyway (kind of) in the photo at the top I will go over them briefly. The green top is actually a dress which I need to alter just like the one I did for my cousins wedding. I'm wearing the red blouse at the moment with some bluetights, shorts, a white cardigan and white lace up shoes, I might take a photo of it for lookbook but I don't know if I can bare the cold... Ok I may be over reacting a little bit but honestly this weather change is quite a shock to the system! Also there is a cream cotton blouse with some acorns on. I ran into my Grandma whilst I was going round the charity shops yesterday and she insisted that she buy it rather than me, I don't like it when she buys me stuff, she should spend it on herself! I am very grateful though, shes always buying me brooches too, I've got quite a collection now!

Finally in the bottom right hand corner there is a really nice dark blue-aqua coloured blouse with a pink pattern and its just the most beautiful colour ever! It will defiantly be on lookbook sometime soon!

Also I found out a few weeks ago my Mom and my Grandma read my blog haha......

Thanks for reading!
