Newness || Charity shopping

You know when you walk into a shop and immediately see something perfect, right at the front of the rail, staring you in the face, the only one of it's kind, and then you go over and it's your exact size and only £3.99? No didn't think so ;) doesn't happen often and it never happens in high street stores. Honestly even if I see the same thing in a high street store, it stands out so much more in a charity shop 'cos most of the time you have to trawl through a lot of tat to find anything good.


But when you find something good it's like you freaking deserve an award. So in the last two weeks I just got a couple of things, I really had to have them! The denim pinafore is originally from Topshop, and it's a size 8 and fits me perfectly! Pretty sure it would be around £30 or more in store but from the charity shop it was only £3.99! Yaaayyy!


The sparkly gold top was also unexpected. I was shopping with my housemate, feeling very ill and sorry for myself and hoping he'd hurry up so I could get to bed and I looked to one side and obviously if there is anything sparkly nearby it's gonna catch my eye! So I spotted it straight away, just a bit of gold glitter, and pulled it out. I wasn't sure if I should get it but it was only £1.49 and originally from Zara. It also fits perfectly. Pretty damn pleased with myself to be honest. Got some more sparkle in my wardrobe! I also bought some black nail polish for 99p 'cos you can never have too much black nail polish.


I think they look cute together? I'm going to a car boot sale on Sunday and then onto the charity shops again! If I find anything more I'll remember to share it ;)
