COME AS YOU ARE :: WHAT I THRIFTED #22

I am a child of the nineties and it’s because of that, I tend to stay away from most of the era’s trends that have inevitably made a comeback. In the early nineties, I owned a shell suit, thought blue mascara was cool, kept my wild, pre-straighteners hair tame with a tacky, velvet headband and came […] Read more…

CREATURE OF HABIT

  There’s no denying it, I am a creature of habit. I can’t help it, try as I may! Subconsciously, I gravitate towards the same fashion choices time and time again. You might have noticed: mustard, polka dots and cute collars. It won’t surprise you to hear that I own three mustard coats and well, I […] Read more…

THIS OLD HEART OF MINE

To find an original, red telephone box in the UK these days can be rather rare and sighting one can feel fortuitous, especially when that telephone box happens to be located in the small, rural village where your parents live. Most Sundays, John and I take the short drive out of town, through scenic countryside […] Read more…

INTO THE WOODS :: THE PLEDGE

I’m starting this year with a pledge rather than a ban. Let’s face it, I could be called shallow, but finding a thrifty bargain to make a new-to-me outfit makes me way happier than it probably should. Why would I want to stop? Because I’m now the proud owner of a collection of clothes that […] Read more…

BYGONE TIMES :: WHAT I THRIFTED #20

The first working week after any school holiday always hits me hard. I’m a rushed blur of breakfast on the run, smudged mascara and arriving with minutes to spare, who isn’t? By the time the weekend rolls around, I feel like I’ve well and truly earned a break- time to switch off from planning, differentiation […] Read more…

WHAT I THRIFTED #17 #18 #19 :: AIN’T NO SWAN SONG

  Swans: fiercely loyal and loving, swans seek a partner for life. So, it was rather heartbreaking for my swan jumper to be seeking its mate almost 18 months since its purchase. It’s not that I didn’t love my £2.49 charity shop find: I simply hadn’t found its perfect companion. Would it be this jumper’s […] Read more…

LOUCHE, CAMERA… ACTION!

Happy new year, folks! We made it to the other side, hello 2016! The Christmas tree is down, January blues are setting in and I guess we’re all looking ahead with the hope that 2016 will be a year to remember. I try my best not to dwell on the past, nor to make new […] Read more…

A YEAR OF CLOTHES :: WHAT I WORE IN 2015

  It’s just hours until the clock strikes midnight and the calendar flips to 2016: I’ve thought about the new year so much (with a slight anxious flutter: new year isn’t my favourite time) that it already feels like 2016! I couldn’t let the new year slip in without the obligatory retrospect post, a whirlwind round […] Read more…

HOW TO WEAR A LINDY BOP SUMMER DRESS IN WINTER

For the past two years, I’ve started each year with a fashion themed challenge. Usually, this involves me changing my habits to reduce what I spend on clothes in a bid to live more frugally. However, in the second part of this year I’ve had to be thrifty so I’ve bought more clothes from charity […] Read more…

WHAT I ACTUALLY WORE :: PEPA LOVES

Happy Christmas! I hope you had a great one!    I’m snuggled up on the couch watching films, so I’ve decided to relive Christmas through a rather festive outfit post. I know, I know, I already wrote about my outfit plans for Christmas Day but days before, I came down with a fierce cold which made […] Read more…
