What I didn’t write about was the swag that I came home with after a good hour or so rummaging in old crates, poking around clothes rails and picking over costume jewellery… There was a lot to get through.
Sometimes I am on a hunt for a specific item. Until recently it was a pillbox red belt (that I picked up in a street market in Spain), and my new quest is bright yellow heels. No such luck so far, but on the first stall I stopped at I did spot these…
They were £3. So I couldn’t resist.
I love bright colours, particularly green, and as soon as I saw this belt I had to buy it. Especially after I found out that it was 50p.
Clearly unsatisfied with only two different accessories to my name, I bought these ivory elbow length gloves for £2. They are ideal for fancy dress!
After looking at a tray with everything marked at £3, I found this pretty necklace with pearl and diamante. So I bought that too…
When I saw this dress on the hanger I wasn’t too sure to begin with. It’s one of those dresses that doesn’t look too exciting (hideous?) on the rail. But when I tried it on all its little details and embellishments won me over.
I bought it for £8. It does have a wee bit of a strange personality, but I think we need to gamble on quirky items now and then. Think that’s a reasonable deal? Or something you wouldn’t touch with a barge pole?
So, a total haul of £16.50 for the above items. I bought a couple of other bits and bobs too, but I think I will save them for another post :)
Oh, and you’ll have to forgive me for my generally poor photos. I took them under electric light (not good) and I am not great with the photos in general. But I will hopefully get better with practice! Watch this space…
