Back taking snaps inside after the Great Snow Takeover, don’t you love how the weather loves to create chaos in the UK (had to walk half a mile in the snow in highly inappropriate footwear due to being abandoned by my bus)! During less snowy times I managed to nip into one of my favourite charity shops and pick up this baggy wool cardigan for a fiver, made by an old Lincolnshire company called Straven. I love finding clothes with a bit of history and have been trying to find out more about the company to no avail. I definitely prefer the charity shops where I live as there isn’t the student competition of Nottingham and I’ve been able to find some great things, the best being this book for £2.50 a few years ago! What’s been your best charity shop bargain? On a less charitable note, I’m really glad I brought these boots home with me; I had to be quite selective when I was packing but I’m determined to wear them more and prove their versatility.
I have been gradually weaning myself off Topshop due to the demise of my staff discount but as I’m a sucker for anything asymmetric, I had to buy this skirt back in October. I hadn’t managed to photograph it up until now but it’s been worn quite a few times and I especially like it looks with thigh-high socks. This is the Urban Outfitters pair I bought in the last post, as I’m very much obsessed with dark red hues at the moment and this style keeps everything pretty with a touch of lace.
The House of Holland tights giveaway ends tomorrow (my that’s gone quickly) so make sure you get your entry in!
