70's, 80's and 00's-Vintage and Modern Dresses

I went to the charity shops today, not really expecting to find anything, but was very pleased with what I got!! I went out with just under £20 and came back with a 70s navy floral maxi skirt by C&A (now no longer in the UK), an 80s chiffon crepe floral sundress, an 80s leopard print dress complete with shoulder pads and smiley face buttons, a fluoro pink cheesecloth short sleeve blouse (to wear with my Chloe jeans) and a modern floral maxi dress, to replace the one I had to give away as it no longer fitted! Oh, and 15p in my purse!!

I'm loving the leopard, it can be hard to pull off for us mere mortals but you're absolutely rockin' it!!!

Y'know, it's been forever since I properly went a-thriftin' and you are completely inspiring me to go. :)

Thanks, so much, emmapeelpants!! It is nice (and rare) to go thrifting and find quite a few items all in one go-it's a buzz!
