Recent Buys.


I mentioned earlier this week that I'd popped into Manchester and picked up some bits and bobs. Everything here was bought from a charity shop, or Primark, and whilst I don't like to brag it came in under £20! 

The dress is from Primark, for a tenner, I've seen it on quite a few blogs, and thought why not give it a try? There are similar ones at Dorothy Perkins, Topshop, and H&M. But this one is just as good and alot cheaper. I was quite surprised with how opaque and the quality of the material as usually Primark dresses can be quite thin but this had a lovely feel to it. I can't wait to wear it when it gets really warm! 

The collar was from a charity shop for £1! I did see one in Primark that was so similar for £4 but I'm glad a waited now.  I'm pretty sure its the same one but I'm not complaining, as in the same shop I picked up the two pictures or Marilyn Monroe and the Beatles for 50p each. I think they add a little bit more personality to my cream/boring room.

The bag was from a charity shop as well for £4. I quite like the idea of sticking the strap inside and wearing it as a clutch with a cream and black maxi dress I have and with tan wedges. Or is matching shoes and bag still a no-no?

Anyway, I hope you like my bargains! Have you got any bargains recently? I'm off for an afternoon stroll with the dog, covered in mosquito spray.
