I'm probably the worst blogger in the world about updating but I'm trying to find time!
My list of things to get this Autumn is literally endless.. with parties and 18ths to go to I need to find the money to buy it all! but it doesn't mean I can't keep wishing for it. I've basically found everything I want but am waiting to get it when I've raised the money!
Finally! I've found the perfect outfit to do for a 50's pinup inspired look.
Due to a bad hair day, I added the hat haha, hopefully I've still managed to achieve the look!
I've always thought that the 50's was such a glamorous and beautiful era, and even though I've added some short shorts (which I bought today at a car boot sale) I still think it can look classic and vintage. I also added some red lipstick which is very 50's!
It's been a while since I last went shopping, this may be a good thing for my bank account but not for my fashion needs!
In Watford town, you can always depend on charity shops to give what you want and with my findings definitely proved this..
In Oxfam I managed to get a leopard print shift dress/shirt for 2.99!
Also, well you probably don't know that I'm a sucker for christmas/cheesy jumpers.. so I also found a black and white damask jumper with red and green roses at the bottom for only £2
Okay, so even though summer is nearly ending, I've been trying to find dream catcher to put in my room at night and wear in the day and today is that day! Have a look Dorothy Perkins and they should have them there.
Right, my next find was not in a charity shop but in Primark..and they've definitely got a lot better since I last went in there, they have the most amazing festival clothes and chiffon dresses!
I found this gorgeous poncho/jumper in there for £12 which I will be wearing tomorrow for my new look on lookbook!
If any of you have looked on my eBay lately, you might be interested to know that I'm selling a pair of Topshop inspired heels which were used in my 60's Monochrome post! so have a watch if your interested.
Hope your having a good summer my lovely's xx
If your wanting to know how to find some good vintage clothes in thrift shops then have a look at this post..
It's not the best of times in London at the moment, but that doesn't mean we can't carry on with what most of us Brits do best (well some of us), being classy!
I get asked a lot of the time, how you can dress classy when you don't have the money to find fancy things?
CHARITY SHOPS of course!
I've found lots of classy clothing in charity shops whilst only spending up to £4, so there's a way for it to be done!
But anyway, over the years of admiring ladies such as Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly, I have 4 key ways which lead towards a classy woman..
1. Decide which assets to show off! The legs or the upper body.. shift dresses are perfect!
2. Wearing black! subtle and it goes with everything!
3. The perfect bag, I've had my eye on this bag for months and I still can't find it anywhere without it being over £75. It's a Fiorelli Hepburn inspired holdall leather bag which I feel is perfect to complete a classy look.
4. And the last little tip is making sure the clothes fit! If your wearing a tight fitting top with just jeans then throw a detailed cardigan over the top or a kimono! yes!
Anyway, I thought this post might be quite helpful :)
