charity shop blouse

Thursday, 3 February 2011


floral print blouse: charity shop
high-waisted denim shorts: New Look
black tights: Boots
black lace booties: River Island
jewel ring: Debenhams/christmas present from Luke
blue polka dot earrings: Primark



I quickly popped into town yesterday to have a wee look in the charity shops. I only came out with this blouse but I love it. To me it's the perfect length, print, shape, and the neckline is so cute! I also had a peek in Dorothy Perkins and found the most gorgeous going-out dress for an outing I have planned in a couple of weeks. They also had a huge amount of sale jewellery that I would have bought full-price - pearl earrings, black stone necklace, chandelier earrings. I'm sure you'll see them all soon.

Oh, and excuse the sorry faces in these photos. I have to go to uni in a bit, and am kind of dreading it. We're starting our final major projects and I don't know what they'll think of my idea - scared much?! Wish me luck!

How is everyone's week so far?

  18. Don't blame you for not being able to resist the blouse - it's lovely :)

    It reminds me of a dress I've got actually.. similar colour & print. Will have to dig that out!

    Jealous of your DPs sale jewellery - looking forward to seeing what you picked up.

    My week so far has been.. hmm.. frustrating? Tiring? They're prob the most fitting words to describe it!
