Top (L-R): Sparkle Black Top: £2.99. Leopard Denim Mini (from Miss Selfridge): £13.50. Tartan Mini Skirt: £2.99. Rose-tinted Sunglasses (Camden Market): £5. Aztec Blouse: £3.49. Patterned Blouse: £2.99. Bottom (L-R): Pink Chiffon Blouse: £1.50. Orange, Patterned Blouse: £2.25. Turquoise, Patterned Midi Dress: £5. Lace Cream, Crop Top: £3.


I've strangely had a lot of luck with the local charity shops this week. I've been avoiding them the past few months because they have been cheeky enough push their prices up so much that's it put me off of buying from them. However, last week the Cancer Research shop (who is usually the worst culprit for over-priced secondhand) had slashed the prices of their "Vintage & Retro" section to half price, which brought them down to usual charity shop prices in the good ol' days. The trouble is when I see somewhere is selling everything at half price, I automatically think it's acceptable to buy twice as much as I usually would.

The leopard mini and sunglasses aren't technically from charity shops, but I've bought them both this week. They were both so cheap though I thought I would throw them in there! The charity shops have been tempting me with some beautifully, grungey prints that I could not say 'no' too. I am so weak-minded! I've been looking on eBay for ages for aztec print shirts, but they go for ridiculous prices so I was ever so lucky to chance across these two for less than £3 each! Also, the tartan mini is amazing! It's actually a neon green! It's actually so bright that neither my iPhone, nor my camera can pick up the colour or brightness of it. But trust me, it's amazing! The turquoise midi dress is also wonderful and unique. I'm hoping the sun shows it's face again this week so I can wear it.

I actually have forgotten to photograph a blue velvet, vintage maxi with cut-out mesh panels, because it's hanging out to dry. You know when you try something on out and you know you look completely and utterly shit hot in it? That was the case with this maxi dress and I'm very rarely happy when I look in the mirror! Now, I just need someone to get married or hold some sort of formal dinner, so I can actually wear it. Any takers?
