So who would believe, but charity shops have sales too. Let’s be honest, how much use will I get out of cropped, camouflage trousers? Not that much, but for a £1 I will take the chance. On the other hand, the waistcoat should become staple in my wardrobe and for only £3 that is a bargain. I have done everything in army green and black colours.
Another look with the red coat. Despite being a bright colour, the coat seems to be very versatile. This time paired with a dress that I had for ages, the red in the flowers goes with the red coat and the rest of the accessories is brown. I have even dug out a necklace, in the shape of an elephant, that I used to wear when I was a teenager and that was a long time ago.
It all has started with this fab blouse that has been handed down to me. I didn’t want to wear it over a black top, so I have chosen a brick colour top, but then the weather forecast was all rain so I have decided to wear a leather jacket and the faux-leather trousers sprang to mind automatically and sensible shoes good for rain and a black bag to finish it all.
I have bought these wide-leg trousers on sale from Primark, they have a very vintage vibe for me, a bit of 70-ties a bit of 40-ties look. Hope to wear them all winter. Like them with a skinny, vintage belt.
That’s mine on a budget wedding guest outfit. Both clothing items were from charity shops. The dress I have bought in the middle of the winter, the best time to buy dresses, and the bolero I have got a day before the event, which was lucky. I think it all works because all items are in the same cool scale of browns and beiges.
