Denim Saga

I do love a bargain, especially when its a good quality one and I know I'm saving money too. My trip to the boot sale on Sunday only yielded one item, which was this Levis for Girls denim jacket for only £1.


Well, you can see how much I've saved than if I'd gone to the Levis store to purchase one!!


I have 2 Levis denim jackets now and my faded one from River Island. I gave some denim to the charity shop, which included another denim jacket I had and some denim skirts that didn't fit properly. I'd rather look out for some different ones as I'd gone off these items.

The beauty of thrifting means that items can be 'easy come, easy go' without feeling guilty. I had originally spent around £10 for 1 denim jacket and 3 denim skirts that I've now given to the charity shop and they now benefit from my fickleness!!

You know I love denim! I'll stop by and borrow the jacket some evening, is that OK? ;oD

Did you stop by my blog and see what I got over the weekend? It's stuff for the boys, but bargains nonetheless!

I snapped a H&M one brand new from a charity shop, it still had it's original tag in ... it also cost me £1 and it was one of the bargains of the year for me!

Fab bargain my dear!
£130 for a denim jacket that’s just madness!
I always come across good denim jackets at markets & in charity shops for a few quid, some used & some brand new, it just blows me away to think that anyone would spend that amount of money on a casual jacket, especially at the moment when pennies are as rumour has it, scarce!

You always find the best deals, Sharon! You inspire us to be better thrifters!

I love denim jackets...they are perfect for almost every season, and if worn properly , never go out of style:)
I agree with you, if something is purchased for an insignificant amount then you have an easier time letting go of it:)

I've always wanted a denim jacket but never bought one because I thought it was too expensive. You've given me an alternative! Thanks!

Denim is a great find because it's so versatile and lasts forever - even if it's been worn before! And it's one of those pieces that actually suits the well-worn look.
