Marc Jacobs thrift find!!

On a visit into town earlier this week I had a couple of errands to do which took quicker than I had anticipated, so with time on my hands, I obviously had a browse in my local charity shops. Well, in the last shop on the way out, I spotted this mass of print on the rail, pulled it out and spied it was a Marc Jacobs skirt in my size!!


It had to be snapped up for a bargainous £8.99-from the Heart Foundation charity shop. I'm not sure what year its from, but it certainly suits the vibrant print and ethnic trend for this summer, so I'll be wearing it often!!


My best bargain of the year to date!!

I love it. Very Native American, and love how you paired it with denim. Definitely a piece you will wear a lot.

What a fantastic skirt. I love the print and the way it works so well with the denim jacket and brown boots. I think BHF have the best charity shops.

OH, Sharon! I agree! An extremely great bargain! You have framed it beautifully with that jacket and boots. You've set me off an a "skirt safari"! Sure hope I stumble on something even close to yours.

What a find, Sharon! Regardless of the posh label it's something I would have instantly grabbed, the style and wonderful ethnic print are exquistite.
Just goes to show that there are plenty of fabulous finds in charity shops if you've got a good enough eye.
Great outfit!

How lucky of you to get a Marc Jacobs. I guess charity shops are great since they are cheap. I once got a whole wool blanket for just AUD5!

What an amazing find! The Heart Foundation charity shops in my area seem to give the better clothes to up-market vintage shops. The combination with the sleeveless denim jacket is perfect.

Hi Sharon!
wow! You've done it again! :)
you know, I've just had an idea and I thought I'd share it with you. How about you write a quick little book on thrift shopping in London- tips, places to go, etc. And then sell it here on your blog. I think it will be a big hit! What do you think? :)

Mimi

SR@MyStyle said...

Hi LaMimi-so kind of you, thanks for your lovely comment, its a good idea but I will most probably use my blog for giving out tips and inspiration on thrifting, I feel more comfortable expressing myself this way!!

Winnie said...

Oh my goodness, you did it AGAIN Sharon? You are amazing and super lucky!

atelier said...
