Outfit Post

As it was half term last week and there was not a lot of activity-barring some housework and general chilling out, I thought I'd show you my thrift finds from last week.
The trip took place in 2 parts, in which I bought the jeans and grey top 2 Saturdays ago and the belt last Monday-I had to go back for it as I'd run out of cash first time round!!


The grey top is by Tommy Hilfiger Heritage Denim and was £1.50 and the jeans are Sass & Bide for £3.99, from the British Red Cross Charity shop.

The belt was a must have. I hid it on my first trip right under the big pile of belts, intending to return if I still wanted it. Years ago, I visited Marrakesh in Morocco and in the souks I bought 2 lovely leather belts. Goodness knows what possessed me, but I gave them away to the charity shops some years later. So, when I saw this one which is virtually identical to my original one, I just had to buy it-I'm not going back to Morocco in a hurry (mores the pity, its a gorgeous place to go!) So as well as having it for nostalgic reasons, I thought it would go with my summer vintage dresses, as I don't have a brown studded cinch belt.

Hi Ladies who Lunch-as soon as I saw it I just had to have it, the Moroccan craftmanship is just so unique!

This is a really awesome cold-weather look! And the homes in the background of the photo are making me miss England (sniffle). :o( I hope I can go there this summer (my bridesmaid's sister is getting married).

And the belt is fab!

Oh, is this the cinch belt you were telling me about? :)

Sharon Rose said...

Hi there-thanks for all your fabulous comments, always much appreciated! To La Mimi, yes I did visit Marrakesh, such a stunning and wonderful city and I had a lovely time for the short time I was there!!

The belt is lovely, it will certainly look great with summer dresses!

ellie said...

I so love the belt. Cool outfit!

Cate said...

Hey Sharon!
Your jeans are awesome, they fit you perfectly! Do you get to try them on in thrift shops? You know what, you will probably think I made the following thing up, but it's true: I actually guessed that the jeans were Sass & Bide. They always seem to fit greatly.
The belt will surely go perfectly with your vintage summer dress? I imagine that it will go very well with clothes in light colours and light fabrics.
Morocco must be a great place to go.. I know Kate Moss loves it! :)

Sharon Rose said...

Hi there-thanks so much once again to you all!

Danz said...

Love the outfit Sharon! Those jeans fit you really well. I have a belt similar to the one you're wearing but its definitely not from Morocco!

Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my birthday post. Really appreciate it :)

Eri said...

Sharon Rose said...

Thanks so much ladies!

The Seeker said...

Oh I've done that, giving away things that now I want.... :(

And you rock that denim, looking great lady.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi the seeker-yes, I'm going to start saving my things more now, thanks my dear!!
