Shopping my boot sale wardrobe for 2011

January seems to be a rather anti climax month, after Christmas we are all skint and wishing for warmer weather-I'm also aware we are due for more snow very soon, so things won't change on this front for a while!!

I am missing my boot sales though, my favourite one only starts up around late March to April, so I will be driving around looking for alternative ones up to then, weather permitting.

Here are some of my previous favourite finds from my local booty over the last couple of years:

Leather pencil skirt, £6

Gucci Bag, £5

Thierry Mugler Top 50p and DKNY Pants, £1

Claude Montana Jacket, £2.50

Christian Dior Clutch, £5

Leather Trousers, £1

Oh well, it looks like I will be shopping my existing wardrobe for now and come boot sale season I'll be seeking to thrift good quality designer and vintage pieces that will work well with my existing wardrobe.

Oh, you always look so gorgeous in everything you find, Sharon. I swear you could wear a bin bag and still look amazing.
I'm desparate for a boot sale, I think there's one at the weekend but we've got snow forecast so I'm not holding out much hope. xxx
PS Thank you for your constant support and kind comments. You are lovely. x

The leather skirt fits like a glove, well done. They can be really hard to find the right fit (I still haven't managed) so that is a score. And I am most envious of the Mugler top, one of my favourite designers!

Amazing finds, lucky, lucky you!! I wish there were boot sales near me but then again perhaps just as well there aren't because I'm still hitting the sales :-(

We never have good boot sales near us, and the ones we do have only happen in August! The charity shops are terrible too. Lovly to see some of your favourite finds, I really like you all black outfits - I am such an all black girl, so chic!

Such amazing finds, Sharon. On that level there's certainly no anti-climax (though I totally agree with you when January is concerned). xoxo

Hi Sharon, I am so happy to hear that 2010 ended up on a positive note for you! Like you, I find thrift shopping not just a frugal thing to do but fun as well. The thrill of the hunt, right? You look great in everything you find and I'm amazed how many designer labels you find.

Have a wonderful New Year!

xo, Bonnie

Love love the leather trousers and pencil skirt! I have been hunting high and low for those two items for a lonnnggg time, have only managed to find a H&M tan faux leather skirt, which I do actually quite like, but I'm still incredibly jealous! Leather is so hard to work...and you work it very well :)
