A velvet blazer for Autumn

Well I went thrifting today and because of my finds I didn't bother going to Gap to look for the cardis. Inspired by gorgeous blogger Silje, who loves velvet blazers, I wanted to get one for Autumn too. I was pleased to find this one today at St Francis Hospice for £4!! A quick photo before it was whisked off to the dry cleaners-sheesh, the dry cleaners bill is more than the cost of the jacket, haha!!

I'm wearing the burgundy velvet blazer with my grey Gap vest top and Miss Sixty Truman jeans, all from the charity shops.
I also bagged two French Connection thick cotton camisoles, which will be ideal under this sort of jacket or cardigan, plus I got a Gap shirt, which is from this years collection and is Autumn colouring too! I've decided to thrift for cardis, as although I really like the Gap ones, at least it gives me something to look out for when I do go thrifting, rather than buying stuff I don't really need-no more dresses or bags for the moment!
