20.8.10

Where we went.........

As its the summer hols for me and the boys, we went to Clacton on the East coast for a few days and despite the gloomy weather, we had a really great time:

Robert had great fun on all the rides and arcade games on the Pier
What a handsome young man, lol!!

We all had fun having a paddle in the sea and Chris wouldn't be without his skateboard-except here, lol!!

Of course, I can't go anywhere without checking out the local charity shops for a bargain-I found this cream Topshop tux in excellent condition for only £3!!

I also bagged a 70s vintage floral dress, a floral chiffon blouse by Jeff Banks Studio, an aqua denim mini skirt by Gap, Dorothy Perkins black ski pants and a vintage cream sleeveless jumper by Chelsea Girl-everything came to £15, not bad huh!!

So everyone was happy-glad to be back though, nothing like sleeping in your own bed!!

Excellent purchases, I find the best thrifty find are often to be found in smaller towns. Glad you all enjoyed the Essex coast - it is vastly underrated in my opinion.

Pearl Westwood said...

I do love the seaside! Sounds like you bagged some good finds xx

HEEEELLOOOO, Sharon Rose! I'm delighted that you are back to blogging and your old shopping tricks. 15 quid?!? Bargaining at its best, I'd say. Great piece!
Glad you had a good time with your boys. xo

Your Children are beautiful....ha or should I say handsome...just in case the boys read this lol!! Great find with the coat...You know what would look great on that a Huge Fabric Flower Brooch...I have been wanting to make some...I think it would be a cute accessory for plain tees and coats especially since you find them now sewn right on to the clothing all the time...Enjoy your new treasures~Love Heather
