Cheap Chic

This outfit was picked in mind of today's winning combination of activities; revision, watching doctor who, packing and a bit more revision. I nabbed this dress when I walked down into the village yesterday to grab my prescription from the doctor's and it made me realise how few clothes I buy in charity shops these days; when I was at school I used to wear almost exclusively charity shop things (in particular a black velvet circle skirt with knee-high doc martens that somehow I got away with!) and it's something I should get back into. I've fallen into relying on eBay for my clothes-based bargains. As for the wedges, these aren't actually something I wore today but I couldn't resist showing them off. They were a result of me managing to lose my receipt within the 24 hours between buying some PJs and returning them so only exchange was available to me. Hence these cuties!

  5. A very sweet little dress :)
    I pick loads of stuff up from charity shops, mostly pictures at the moment of different types of birds as I seem to have an obsession with them at the moment XD

  6. Wedges are so cute!

    I buy most of my clothes from charity shops or a NZ site called Trade me which is basically our version on Ebay.

    I do wish I had more time to look in charity shops though - they have such limited hours so the only time I can go and check them out is Saturday mornings.
