dress // next via charity shop

i’m kind of having a ‘moment’ with heart prints/patterns lately. i don’t know where it’s come from, but i’m just finding myself drawn to them. particularly cute ditsy ones like this. i mean, a ditsy pattern, on a navy tea dress? how could i not. and it has a collar so i can wear a sweater over it in the cooler months. also, not often i find something button fronted that doesn’t produce that horrible gap in the bust, but still fits nicely as well. so yeah, i guess you could say i really like this dress!

charity shop finds - gold tone leaf brooch

after a bit of a lull, i’ve been finding some excellent things in the cardiff charity shops lately. when i have a bit more money i’d like to explore some more in wales. and bristol obviously. any bristol readers? let me know of all the good charity shops! i know of the ones in the gloucester rd area, but that’s about it.

one of my favourite finds (another below) has been this leafy brooch. i’ve been looking for one like this for an absolute age. i found other leaf/branch type ones, but they just weren’t quite what i was looking for. then, when i’d almost given up thinking i’d find what i was looking for i decided to pop into my favourite charity shop, and what did i see? thank you brooch fate!

what i wore - patterned top & navy skirt

all items – charity shops

i really wear quite a bit of navy, don’t i? as much as i love a bit of black, my dark colour of choice is actually navy as i feel it is much more suited to my fair skin. i feel like black is a bit too harsh and that navy ‘pops’ a little more. it goes with colours just as well as black and i think it looks super nice with tans and browns. are you more of a navy or black person?

what i wore – polka dot blouse & grey pencil skirt

fashion, charity shops by

if there’s two things i could say i wear the most, it’d be polka dots and pencil skirts. that sounds like some twee album name doesn’t it? i love polka dot (and any) blouses, but i have a difficult time finding ones that fit over my chest without being horrendously large around the waist. this one actually is, but because of the cut it creates an interesting shape, even so i still prefer to wear it with a belt. don’t i prefer everything with a belt, though?
