Party outfit decision plus wardrobe basics

Well this weeks shopping trip was really only for two or three items-navy work trousers, black smart trousers and white evening trousers to go with my Zandra Rhodes Kaftan.

Well, several trying on sessions revealed that I really don't like light coloured floaty/evening/dressy trousers on me-I just didn't like them on and bearing in mind I most probably wouldn't wear them regularly, I've decided to wear my maxi dress for the party and glam it up with accessories!!

I found on my shopping trip some ASOS high waist corset smart black wide legged trousers, £4.50 British Heart Foundation; New Look black wide legged smart trousers £2.99; A vintage navy wool crepe wiggle pencil skirt £2.00; Gap skinny black cordoroy jeans £2.99-All from Help The Aged; Florence & Fred navy work trousers £2.99 and Miss Sixty Truman Indigo straight legged high waist jeans £3.99 both from Salvation Army. I don't own any black trousers, apart from one work pair that are falling apart, so I've a couple of pairs for smartwear now!!

I'm really pleased as all the trousers and jeans are in an 'as new', excellent condition, as is the vintage skirt-which I love as it fits like a glove and is high waisted too!!


Miss Sixty Truman Jeans-mine were £3.99, currently on sale online at
Red Carpet Couture for $99.99!!

Danz said...

Man, you get some seriously amazing deals! Every item for under £5?! That's insane! I wish I had that kind of insanity on my shopping trips :) Can't wait to see how the outfit comes together!

Sharon Rose said...

Thanks so much danz-Like I said, I am pleased as I didn't have any decent black trousers and most of the items I got are high waisted so they will go with a lot of my tops!!

Ida said...

Wow, Sharon, you continue to amaze me every week!! I wish I could find such inexpensive stuff so easily.

I am very glad you are opting for the maxi dress as I do like it very much, and it fits you so perfectly. When is the party actually? Have mighty fun!!

How do you find such great deals? You are amazing. I love the way you plan what you are looking for ahead of time, I'm the same way.

Karima said...

sounds like an amazing shopping spree, wow! thrifting trousers that fit and don't look totally goofy is so very rare...

Sharon Rose said...

Hi alloftheabove-thanks and hope the ebay selling does really well!!

Hi lovely Ida-it's actually 15 June from 6pm onwards, I am looking forward to it-thanks so much for your comment and have a lovely weekend!!

Hi ladies who lunch-the charity shops in my part of Essex have an abundance of reasonable, good quality stuff!!

Hi on track-thanks so much-I do try everything on before I buy, just to make sure!!

Thanks so much, fashion is poison!!

Hi jen! I generally do this, but other bargains do generally pop up when I'm not looking out for them!!

Hi Karima-Shopping for trousers is the hardest-I'm extremely picky so if they don't hang or fit right, I don't have them-same for jeans too!!

bronwyn said...

Cool jeans! You certainly have the magic touch when it comes to bargain hunting, lovely!!!

atelier said...

you are incredibly as bargain finder!

Alice said...

I absolutely wanna come in England, Sharon! You bought these beaautiful jeans for a couple of pounds, in Rome ( but where my parents live is the same situation ) there isn't valuable stores for vintage with affordable prices, no way for charity shop...
Instead i have a store where i can buy brands as Sinéquanone (do you like it? I saw you have a dress), Donna Karan, Gai Mattiolo and others, for a small price, they have some stocks or surplus in production, if you got small size, from 0 to 2, or from italian size36to 40 ( xxs,xs, s)it works perfect! I call it my special outlet near downtown.

Have a great weekend! I spend my saturday at rugby stadium to see the final of italian championship!
