Thrift Inspiration, Kate Moss Style

More thrift finds this week and as a big fan of Kate Moss, I was pleased to pick up this Photo book by Kate Moss and Liz Tilberis, which has totally amazing stunning photos of Kate back in the 90s.

I picked this up in my local Sue Ryder charity shop for only £2.95 and was pleasantly surprised to see them selling on Amazon of between £30 to £100, depending on condition!!

Well I'll be keeping my copy and this is my 3rd Kate book now:

When this picture first appeared in 2006, I just loved this total look-the shorts suit is just gorgeous and the hat really perfects the whole outfit:

So when I saw this Kelly Brook for New Look sun hat in the PDSA charity shop this week I had to get it-its not a trilby but I am in need of a sun hat this season and for £2, its very much Kate inspired with the polka dot banding:

Wishing you all a fabulous weekend and heres to more of the lovely sunshine that we've been having in the UK and for all of you wherever you are, I hope the weather is lovely for you too!!

hang onto the book - it is out of print now and probably will be a collectors item which is why the prices on amazon are so high!

The Kate book is such a good find. I like your floppy hat - and the LDN t-shirt below.

congrats to your 3rd Kate book! would be happy to have at least one but can't find them elsewhere cheaper than the retail price. your hat is awesome and the pic of Kate is so sweet

Loving that hat! I have far too many hats of this shape! I don't think I am going to be able to make the vintage fair again- have still got stacks of school work to do before Monday, plus my little sister has an architecture exhibition that I am going to have to miss for that same reason. DO keep telling us when they are though, I can't wait to come down and have a look! Good luck with it!

That is just teh kind of sun hat I've been after, you lucky thing scoring it for such a good price xx

CameronPoe2409 said...

Its amazing how products from only the past two decades suddenly cost so much, so congrats on your fabulous bargain! I've been looking a copy of a film with Christian Slater from the 90's and have been quoted around £80! I dont think I'm going to throw away any books or films just in case. PS fabulous hat and I do like Kate's style. xx

Big hats are very glam! I only got a Panama last year because SJP had one on in the first film!

SabinePsynopsis said...

Great choice, Sharon! Not only does the hat look lovely on you, I also just read that the floppy hat is much more fashionable now than the trilby :) xoxo
