New In My Wardrobe #2

Top £1.50
Midi Skirt £3
Skirt £3.50
Long Shirt £2
Bag £2 (Perfect for carrying my dslr!)

I love a good bargain, as I think everyone does. If I can get it for a fraction of the price, it makes me very happy indeed. Therefore, I think it is only right I make this a regular feature showing the stuff I get from mainly my favourite charity shop and other cheap bargains. To see the original post where this stems from - New In My Wardrobe #1

Whilst I was in London last week for the weekend, I made sure I took a visit round the shops. Initially, found a Liz Claiborne blue coat but it was just too big so that was out of the question. Although, I thought about altering it with my sewing machine, the work just seemed so daunting so I reluctantly left it. I did however find these pretty items. I have been lusting after tartan skirts/trousers for a while now and not wanted to spend so much money, I was holding out for a cheap pair on ebay. So I was so happy when I found the two skirts in the second and third picture. The darker skirt came which a blazer which I lovingly gave to my sister as she has no patience for charity shops.

Overall, it's £12 well spent!

  1. Loving that little bag! I need to go out and hit the charity shops- they're gold round here! Have to say the tartan is something I will be skipping- still havent got over being forced to wear it for quite so long at school!

  5. I think sadly if you'd bought the coat it would have spent ages sitting around waiting to be sewn! Or it would do if it were me anyway. Some good scores here, I like the tartan skirt a lot.
