Freebies and nautical thoughts!! Tagged, too!!

You all know I love a freebie, so this months Elle had to be purchased. Not only have they got the separate runway guide for autumn, but there is a free Warehouse vest too. There are 4 colours to choose from-mine is a khaki beige colour-get yours now!!



I also went thrifting and was pleased with my purchases. I got a vintage 70s Marks and Spencer vest for £1 and this lovely yacht skirt, which is modern but looks vintage inspired, for £2.99. I thought it would go very nicely with my new shoes from yesterday!



The lovely Emma also tagged me, so here goes 6 uninteresting facts, all about me!
1. My favourite ice cream is currently walnut and advocaat, from Aldis-so delicious!!
2. I really love courgettes-my favourite vegetable of the moment.
3. I love a bargain and rarely like paying full price for any clothes related items!!
4. My new favourite colour is red.
5. I want Nadal to win Wimbledon this year!
6. I need to catch up with my washing duties-a mothers work is never done-haha!!
All my lovely blogger friends-consider yourself tagged if you so wish!!

Oh such a cute skirt!

Secretista said...

I've never heard of courgettes!! I'm going to have to look them up.

ellie said...

Thanks for the comment. Yeah, I know, maybe the Mom was just a bit too bitter, but I've been down that road with my own Mom. Usually, though, it wouldn't really be about me at all, but she'd say hurtful things about me and who I was seeing. She's much better now, though.

Wowwwwwww! I have to go down local paper shop now! Elle does a great runway guide! And the vest is so useful! Yours is lovely! The yacht skirt is really great! I love this print... very refreshing and interesting! I seldom see some print like it, but I want to get something like it now :)

Sharon Rose said...

Hi style du monde-thanks so much, something different!

Hi secretista-they are like a mini baby marrow-very nice!!

Hi ellie-I must admit, going back about twenty years or so, my mum was like that too!!

Hi times of glory-thanks so much-I do like it as it is something different and I think it is a timeless print, too-50s style, maybe?

Always In Style said...

I'm jealous - US magazines never give away good stuff like that vest!

And I love the skirt - great find, esp. cute with your new shoes!

Make Do & Mend said...

more great bargains. Love the yacht print
Courgettes are called Zuccini in the States! Just for future ref.

The skirt is gorgeous, Sharon. At first I wondered why you'd call it "yacht", and thought it must be some term. Then I saw the boats. So lovely!

Cate said...

hi sharon! wow, they sure give amazing freebies with the magazines in the UK. here they don't give ANY! i like your skirt! will you post a picture of your vest too? 70s, vintage...this sure got me curious!
and rafael nadal..yeah, i wouldn't mind if he won wimbledon either!
i can never decide what my favourite colour is, somehow i like 'em all... there are only combinations of colours i don't like.
gosh, if we had such amazing charity shops here, i would never pay full price on some item of clothing either!

vest :-)

I want the Elle freebie too. I hope that the tank is available when you buy the UK version of Elle here in the States.

Sharon Rose said...

MadameDior said...

1 pound! thats a bargain! I love freebies too, in Australia it's hardly free clothing when it ocmes to the magazines, usually it's bags and umbrellas =]

Sharon Rose said...

Hi madamedior-thanks so much, yes the freebies are really not bad over here in the UK!!

Dana (pron. like Donna) said...

excellent skirt! Reminds me of a vintage Chanel jumper Nicole Richie recently wore with tiny airplanes!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi dana-thank you-I'd like to see this jumper of hers!!

soph said...

The skirt is so cool, nautical, but so different to all the nautical stuff everywhere in the shops, very chic

Sharon Rose said...

Hi soph-thanks so much, I'm pleased with it too!!
