So I'm a sucker for anything second hand or something my nan would wear. My most recent purchases have all been from charity shops like 'help the aged' & 'the British heart foundation' and it's amazing at the treasures you can find. Here are a few of my recent charity shops buys...
Pink Curtains with white flowers, for my newly decorated bedroom.
they are a bit short but I quite like that :)

floral skirt, which was long and pleated which I have so far 
cut and will hem when I can be bothered! 
tbh I will probably end up leaving it and inventing some
new fashion that makes fraying skirts look 'cool'. heres

Green strap top
I'm loving the colour green atm it's such
an all-year-round colour

pink sequinned jewellery box

patterned scarf
I love wearing scarfs like this one around my head
i'm well into the hippy/bo-ho look atm.
keeps hair out of your face too! :D

The best thing about all these items is that none of them cost me more than a fiver!
And another great thing about second hand clothing, is that its rare you see someone wearing the same outfit as you!

So next time you get your paycheck through or fancy a shopping trip, don't walk straight past the charity shops on the highstreet in a rush to get to the topshop sale section, but have a gander! And you won't feel indimated but the attractive staff like you do in all the top highstreet stores, 'cause all the staff are lovely sweet elderly ladies who are just delightful!

September is looming and before we know it, we'll all be back to university//college//school//new jobs ready to start a fresh new academic year. And what's better than starting a new academic year than starting it with a new autumn/winter wardrobe! As a student like many of us are, we cannot afford luxurious hand knitted Jack Wills Brendenton jumpers or £65 Argyle sock lined ankle boots from TopShop. But do not fear! Believe it or not but Tesco has come to our rescue with it's own clothing line F&F. I have never paid any attention to F&F until now, but they have some great aut/wint pieces that are at a great student price that I just have to share with you all.

F&F Velvet Tube Skirt £10
F&F Tulip Dress £18.75
F&F Collection Boxy Jumper £6
(also comes in colours Grey & Blue)

Printed Lace Leggings f&f £7.50
