Three off the wishlist!!

This weekend, I 've had a lot of luck with my thrifting and managed to knock three items off my wishlist I posted last week. We've been to Noak Hill Boot sale this weekend and I came back with 3 bags, a belt, a little black dress and a Levis waistcoat. I also went shopping for 2 more bras, too and I dropped by H&M and picked up an orange top I wanted to go with my 70s maxi skirt :-)

I'm impressed - you are the most amazing thrifter:) I love the black dress and bag, excellent buys!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi bronwyn! Thanks ever so much! I do find that our boot sales tend to be even cheaper than the charity shops, so that's how I get good bargains!!

*Sigh* Flea markets are like Disneyland for thrifty people. I may be going to England next year and that's one of the first things I HAVE to do. There's no way to describe the thrill of finding amazing bargains. Your finds are fantastic.

I'm really a bit jealous of your way of making clothes looking so expensive, different. Two great outfits and go on styling like this! Love them!

Thanks Pamcasso! For a £1, I was very lucky it fits so well-I was at the boot sale, so I didn't try it on, either!!
