    WHAT I THRIFTED #4 :: THE METALLIC TOP

     

    What I Thrifted #4 – The Metallic Top

    Over half term, I took myself on a date… with myself. One miserable, rainy day, I simply spent a few hours doing what I love. So, it’ll come as no surprise that I bought myself a very large cappuccino and went thrifting. After mentioning in my previous post, ‘What I Thrifted #3’, my faith in charity shops had weakened after a very unsuccessful spell of finding nothing. Thankfully, fellow charity shop fan, Charity Shop Gold, dropped an encouraging blog comment my way and voila,  I was encouraged to try again. Boy, was I rewarded! Of the many clothes I bought, this Dorothy Perkins top was my first find at the bargain price of £1.50.


    My first thought was, ‘There’s the top I almost bought at Christmas!’ As a result, this was followed by, ‘Is it too Christmassy?’ I hatched a plan to tone it down, on my way to the till ,of course, and here it is. When in doubt? Team it with monochrome and a splash of bright colours! I’ve had this H&M skirt for so many years now, whilst it no longer goes to gigs, it’s the perfect girly skirt for date night with John. 
     

     

    // Outfit Details //
    // Metallic top :: Cancer Research (Dorothy Perkins) //
    // Polka dot skirt :: EBay (H&M) //
    // Necklace :: H&M //
    // Heels :: Matalan //
    // Bag :: Betsey Johnson //
     
    This is probably one of the cheapest outfits I’ve ever owned. Granted Betsey was a surprise gift from John at Christmas, but the rest of the outfit totals no more than £20. We’re now over halfway through on the high street ban, whilst I feel like it’s barely started. So far, the only hankering I’ve had for the high street is the gorgeous new Orla Kiely range for Clarks. Who can blame me? However, I have been lucky enough to have some gifted clothes so maybe that eases the burden? Whatever it is, my bank balance is breathing a sigh of relief!
