Sunglasses: Camden Market, £5 // Dress: Hobbs via Charity Shop, £5 // Waistcoat: £1, Boot sale // Earrings: Urban Outfitters, £6 (w/ staff discount) // Rucksack: Primark, £7 // Boots: Peacocks (old!), £10

If you've been reading my blog for a while you'll know that I'm a huge fan of charity shopping, however surprisingly I haven't been to a boot sale since I was really young! Yesterday, my housemate and me decided to take a trip to our closest boot sale to see what treasures we could find! Unfortunately by the time we got there a lot of people were packing up but we still managed to get our hands on some amazing bargains. Boot sales make charity shops look like Louis Vuitton in comparison as the prices are ridiculously cheap! I think I've been converted! I wore my Hobbs daisy print dress which I picked up in a charity shop a few months ago along with a pair of crotchet white boots I've only just recently re-discovered. I've never worn them in the past because they squeaked embarrassingly loud when I walked, but I decided to Google how to fix a squeaking shoe and was answered by the almighty search engine Gods that I should cover them in hand cream... AND IT WORKED!



Despite turning up a little late to the boot sale I managed to grab some great things including an embroidered waistcoat that's from Morocco. It was actually on a rail of child's fancy dress and came with a matching hat! The best thing is it only cost me £1! I also discovered a stall on our way out that was selling everything for just 50p and managed to get an adorable skirt and crop top matching two-piece with the tags still attached as well as a tie-dye kaftan, a blouse and a wrap around purple skirt. I've wanted a matching two-piece for so long now, and for just £1 I couldn't be happier! I also managed to pick up a absolutely huge roll of vintage floral tapestry which I intend to use to customise some bits to potentially sell on, so keep an eye out for those! The metallic horse print for my room only cost me 10p, whilst the najavo pouch was only 30p! I've got a feeling my Sunday morning trips there will become a regular thing...

  17. I live a five minute drive from the Bursledon bootsale, ah!

    I've only been once, and found some really lovely things. Hopefully I'll get to go again soon- and perhaps I'll bump into you and, embarrassingly enough, ask you for a photograph with me, haha!
