I have to admit that I've never been a great lover of charity shops. I know that people find some fantastic stuff in there sometimes for pennies, and the proceeds are going to a good cause but I've never really had the urge to have a good browse in them. Yesterday though my mum and sister said they where going to town to have a browse through the charity shops and I decided to go with them.
Two new ring purchases :) These aren't from a charity shop, they are from New Look and Primark. I'm trying not to spend as much money on clothes and things atm, so I deliberatley restricted myself to Primark and the charity shops so that if I saw anything I really liked I wouldn't be spending too much :) I have been after the gold bird ring for a while after seeing it on numerous other blogs and falling in love with it. I have an obsession with jewellery or prints with birds on them I think they're really cute.
Flower ring from New Look £2.50 Couldn't resist this one either :) I love anything floral print and I thought this ring would look good in the summer
Floral bangles from Primark £2-£3
Earrings from New Look £4. I thought these would look sweet in the
summer with my ring so couldn't resist
New shoes from store twenty one.
I've never really been in before but I love the floral pattern on these.
Don't ask me why I decided to do a feet in the air shot, I just randomly decided to
try and see what they looked like :)
I love the floral print. I think they will look sweet with
leggings and oversized top or pair of shorts :)
Butterfly belt £3 from Primark. I love this, and I was quiet surprised to find it actually fitted around my waist as I'm quiet small so I can't usually wear them. I have a few butterfly belts from River Island that I love but they where £20 so to get this one for £3 = big smiles :D
Apologies for a photo heavy post I think I was just in a snap happy mood :)
And finally....My charity shop finds :) If you have read previous blog posts you know that Im always on the look out for pretty vintage-y/shabby chic pieces for my room so I was happy to find these for 50p and a £1. I love the little bits you find but they can be quite expensive in some high street stores. Its a bit hit and miss in there for pretty shabby chic items but sometimes you can find some great things
I love the cream vintagey look to the left one and the pastel-y floral
detailing on the second
These are the books that I picked up. The one on the left was 20p :) and the others were a £1 each.
I was quite surprised to find the amount of chic lit books in there that I did. A lot of them were ones that I've picked up idly in bookstores but haven't brought them as they are quiet expensive and I wasnt sure If I would enjoy them and get bored half way through, so it seemed like a waste.
Charity shop convert?....quiet possibly! :)
love and kisses
