charity shop purchases
I've been really quite impressed with the recent clothes section offerings from my local supermarkets. I don't often shop in Asda for my food if I'm honest, but their G21 section is quite often worth a wander through. I saw this giraffe print vest on the website last week and decided I would have a look for it in the shop next time I was in. It's knitted, so I figured it would be good for the dreary weather which greeted me out of the window this morning.

 Due to the odd hem difference (it's a lot longer at the back, which I decided would look a bit strange with a skirt) I paired it with my trusty Clothing at Tesco shorts and then threw a cardigan over the top for added layering. Also realised that the pumps I slipped on as I was leaving need replacing, or at least throwing out, as they have a hole in them. Is there anywhere to recycle old and unwearable shoes - it seems a shame to bin them...?

Inspired by Danielle's post here I included a photo of a few things I picked up in the charity shops at the weekend. I don't recognise any of the makes, but the dress is a lovely print and I think I can alter the top section so that it fits me and looks a bit more flattering; I thought it was a good buy at £6 which I managed to haggle it down to.

The skirt is actually a funny pair of wrap-over front culottes. Any excuse to add to my ever-expanding shorts collection. And the scarf? Well, it's educational - it has plants and their names on it (as well as being cute). All fully justifiable, right?

Has anyone else had any charity shop luck recently?


  1. That vest is amazing!! I do love George at Asda, there's some right gems in there sometimes :)
