Boot Sale-Safari Dress with scarf, plus more bags!!

Silje did a safari dress post a while ago and because the weather was nice today, I thought I would wear mine and also add in a scarf, as promised, in my earlier scarf post!!
Funnily enough, when checking Silje's post today, she had the exact same idea to wear her lovely Carrie inspired safari dress too!! I think its the Gemini connection with us-its not the first time we've had these similiar thoughts!!
The dress was purchased a few years ago from a charity shop and is by Warehouse. I wear it year in, year out and as its gets really hot at the boot sale, I thought I would wear my silk Jaeger scarf too-my new Primark jellies complete the ensemble with my Topshop fringed bag!!


I fell in love with this bag today, as the embroidery on it is soo lovely and the fishes are really cute-haha!! Chris treated me, so that was ok!!


Another chain bag, but a 'Tula' leather one, for only £1!!

Jellies are so comfortable! I have so many of them! I love how you wore your scarf! I don't have the guts to wear like that but you wear it so well & the dress is amazing!

Sharon S said...

Hi yiqin-Yes, my first pair, and I must say I'm very impressed!! So kind, thanks so much-I think as you get older, Yiqin, you dress how you want and have more self confidence to wear different styles!!!

I used to have that brown fringed bag from top shop! i remember buying it and loving it to death years ago, and then my sister came and raided my wardrobe one day and relieved me of it.. she now wears it loads..

Thanks for the advice in your comment.

How has the weather been in your part of the world.

Here in the heartland (Nebraska&Iowa), just this Friday about 5 in the afternoon, a straight wind storm came up...lasted about all of 15 minutes, left thousands without power, trees uprooted. Even two teens were killed when a tree hit there car. Hopefully, you are having much more milder weather than we ar.

Sharon S said...

Hi ellie-Sorry to hear this bad news, this is such a shame about the teenagers-a terrible tragedy. The weather here today is very blowy and overcast, fairly warm but not as hot as yesterday. Your more than welcome for the comment!!

Love that safari dress. And the bags? Gorgeous. Embroidery is always beautiful, especially on handkerchiefs and bags. God, I wish they had better *and* more thrift stores over here!

Mmm the car boots around where you live seem bountiful indeed! Or maybe you're a very dedicated rummager...I like a bit of a rummage but when there's a thousand things tossed on the grass I lose the will!

Times of Glory said...

Sharon, you are like just coming out from Sex and the City - very very stylish! I love the outfit a lot! God, darling, you can really find some bargains! The most important things are not only cheap, but they are totally style savers! Sharon, you are the best!

Sharon S said...

Hi soph-I know exactly what you mean-I do have to be in the mood to have a good rummage as well!
