Charity Shop Bargain


|| Coat - Primark || Jumper - Charity Shop || Jeans - Zara (last season) || Boots - Missguided ||

The knee high boots I am wearing here are my favourite heels - if not shoes in general to date. I want to warn you in advance that they will be on my blog. A lot. I mentioned in the post that features my beautiful friend Alisha (you can find it here) that I recently went to a few 'posh' charity shops in the west of London and found some amazing bargains. The jumper you can see pictured here was one of those. I have to add that it is actually a mens jumper, but who cares when it was only priced at £6? As I have extra terrestrial psychic powers, I can indeed predict that another charity shop bargain will be seen in my next post. Possibly a pair of Gap jeans for £4? (I know, I can't believe it too) I seriously need to start shopping in charity shops more often, it is both better for the environment and for those in need than a regular high street shop, not to mention my bank balance!

Thank you for reading,
I hope you have a lovely day!

Quilted Two Piece


|| Coat - Miss Selfridge || Two piece - Market || Boots - H&M ||

This two piece is probably one of my favourite wardrobe pieces, I love the simplicity of it and the texture of the quilted fabric. It has a kind of leather look when you aren't looking closely. As the weather is getting a little cooler, I have, of course taken my beloved Doreen out of the closet. (for those of you who don't know, Doreen is my pink coat - I love her so much I have given her a name - I know, I am extremely sad) I actually wanted to get her out a little earlier, but until now my hair was too pink - literally the same colour as the coat!

Until next time

OOTD Special Guest

For those of you who we're wondering, this is my friend Alisha. We recently went to a posh part of London to have a little look at some charity shops, I have to say that we did not regret it one bit! The main reason for this was the amazing bargains we picked up (Alisha picked up a Jaeger duster coat for £65!) but the classic west london houses were so beautiful it had us daydreaming about what it would be like to live there. It called for some outfit shots Alisha looked so great I thought I would feature her. I don't have her specific outfit details to hand but you like anything she is wearing let me know and I can get the details! 
I hope you enjoyed seeing something different today, if you want me to do more post featuring my extremely stylish mates let me know!

Knee High Booties


|| Dress - French Connection || Coat - Forever 21 || Boots - Missguided ||

I really didn't need these boots, but after a day of not feeling very well I had to do a bit of retail therapy to make me feel better. As soon as I saw these gorgeous knee high boots on the Missguided website I fell in love. They also have them in a fab navy colour which I actually thought looked better, but I thought I would stick to the safe option of black! Once again I am wearing monochrome (I don't know why I keep doing this because I have so much colour in my wardrobe!) I have been looking for a black coat for a while and in the process ended up buying loads of stuff I didn't need (oops) but the wait is over and I now have one! It is quite expensive for forever 21 at £59 but I haven't been able to find any nice longer ones anywhere, well, apart from extremely expensive ones from the likes of Topshop, which at the minute are a no go for me! 

I hope you enjoyed this post,
See you next time

Oversized Check


|| Coat - Primark || Top - Vintage || Skirt - Primark || Boots - H&M ||

So my pink hair is still here and to be honest it is actually really growing on me! It has started to fade since I took these photos but I am loving the selection of colours Bleach London has and I'm considering trying a few more out once the pink fully fades. This Coat was an absolute steal from Primark. I really needed a new black coat because, of course, they go with everything, but as soon as I saw this, I grabbed it and ran (for the till). It is THE perfect shape as I am loving anything oversized at the minute, I also love how it is slightly rounded at the shoulders due to the extended shoulder seam. Once again I am wearing my new (ish) H&M boots - I just love the, so much!! But as you may have also noticed, I am actually wearing no Miss Selfridge which means that this is a very special moment - they don't come around too often! You can't really see the skirt that I'm wearing here because the coat is hiding it, but feel free to keep reading to see more photos with the skirt visible. It is one of my favourites and always seems to find its self creep back into my blog every now and then. 

See you soon!
