Thrift Inspiration, Doing it Net-A-Porter Style!!

Whilst thrifting last month, I spied a silk khaki shirt for only £1.99. I picked it up and thought about it and put it back and went home. After looking at Net-A-Porter and 'Look' magazine, I realised it would be a great buy after all so I went back and snapped it up!!

Khaki military is a trend that although is back this summer, never really goes out of style, so any basic piece in this trend will be a keeper anyway. Here are what the designers have in this trend:


Balmain, £705

My shirt by Debenhams is from the Salvation Army charity shop and for silk was a fabulous bargain at only £1.99.

What items of khaki/military will you be in this summer?

Love these shirts .. I have to tell you I bought one in a Ralph Lauren outlet shop its the good label linen and it was £5 so I bought two as they for me will be worn on trend or not on trend xx

It's weird how we sometimes save at the totally wrong time... The same happened to me with a leopard print chiffon blouse for a few quid and I was 'nah, I'll save the money'. I could still hit myself!

You can't go wrong at £1.99!! It's funny but you will be able to wear it all summer and then chuck it as the chances of military being around next summer are zero. (don't quote me on that though!)

Imagine if you bought the Balmain at £705!!

Oh I am now completely obssessed with khaki! I've been wearing an old military jacket all week, also found an old M&S /Ghost-inspired hooded crinkle viscose parka in the wardrobe which I've been wearing with jeans - not long now before I break out the combat pants!

Well done you and amazing it was still in the shop to snap up! A silk shirt is just the easiest thing to wear this season. I will get some better pix posted of my Dior goodies next week.

Great find and it is such a keeper, there is always going to be some form of military/khaki/safari trend going on and I think such a classic shirt will never be 'out' of fashion - unlike one of those bonkers Balmain tops with all the holes and chains - I must be missing something with that trend LOL!
I got lucky in the vintage department last week - havent had chance to post yet but I got the best pair of khaki pants and two tops ever, I might actually get to wear and post them this weekend if this lovely sunshine holds up, have a great wkend xx

Leah said...

Hmmm...khaki is still a bit of a strange colour for me. Don't know if I can be quite won over yet.
