Todays outfit is made up of a few pieces that I found in the loft, which must have been up there for at least 6 or 7 years and a pencil skirt that I bought in a second hand shop in my local town for about £4. I don’t really have a uniform as I tend to wear quite random and different outfits every day but if I am in a rush and don’t have time to fuss over what I am wearing I often turn to the trusty pencil skirt or shift dress. I love both because they are fairly flattering for me being quite short and never really go out of fashion. A pencil skirt is one of those easy charity shop buys. There are usually plenty to choose from and they are classic. I always think a pencil skirt needs a pair of heels to look just right.
I have also just invested in a new pencil skirt from the local charity shop with a blue and black abstract pattern and can’t wait to wear it.
My charity shop haul for this week also includes a star print dress by Linea, a jersey dress by French Connection and a coral cardi by Coast. All very wearable and comfy pieces that I hope I will get loads of wear from. I think I need to try and avoid charity shops for a while as my wardrobe is about to burst.
Have you had any charity shop finds this week?
I have been having a think about presents for my homemade and vintage Christmas and quite like the idea of making flavoured vodkas amongst other things. So far my ideas include Christmas vodka with spices like cinnamon and cloves and toffee vodka. I am also wondering whether chocolate vodka is possible. I guess the possibilities are endless. Do you have any ideas for homemade flavoured vodkas?
With warmest wishes
