Thomas Burberry-Recent Thrift Find

Well, its mid December and I haven't thrifted anything so far this month, although I have had a mini sort out in the wardrobe to donate some things to charity.

I thought I'd show you one of last months finds. The Thomas Burberry brand was a diffusion line for Burberry but unfortunately the company took the decision to discontinue the line in January of this year.

I found this grey striped smock style dress in the Salvation Army for just £5.99. Its perfect for winter as I can wear a polo neck jumper and opaque tights and boots underneath.


I don't normally wear dresses in winter, but this is a perfect day dress for casual wear and it will be a versatile item come summer too!

I'll look forward to seeing you in the dress with the "underlays" as you describe them! Sounds very interesting - so many colors will work!

Lovely dress! I had no idea Thomas Burberry had been shut down... what a shame. Adore that leopard bag in your last post as well. Hope you're having a great week so far!

cool. I have some plaids that are similar to this style that I wear over my long sleeves and leggins along with my boots. Since its in the negatives today..leg warmers even.

I have a silly questions..regarding rainboots. Do you have to wear shoes when you wear them?

I need more dresses that can be layered. I have none, but this look is inspiring to look for.

And shame the diffusion line was cut off. Still, perfect find bella :D
