Yeah you read that right. £1, a quid, 100 pennies. What an absolute bargain this skirt was. Although I still feel so awkward posing for photos, I think you can tell that by my face lol.
If you follow me over on Insta, especially on my stories, then you’ll see that I like a good rummage round the charity shops. I’ve found some amazing bargains, and not just clothes. I picked up a 1960’s Wedgewood dinner set that for a fiver. We use it every day, not point stashing it in the cupboard.
I popped into my local Sue Ryder charity shop on my way home & ended up leaving with two huge carrier bags full. The other people in the queue didn’t look that happy waiting behind me being served…
I’ve been looking at a few different styles of leopard print midi skirt. Couldn’t stop fawning over how people have styled them over on Insta. One of my favourite shops, Love Lucy Boutique styled hers stunningly both casual & dressed up. But I was holding out hoping I’d find one second hand. I’m still trying to buy responsibly rather than the throwaway fashion we’ve gotten into recently. I’ve nicknamed it my #CharityShopStyleChallenge.
I was so happy to find this beauty. It’s brilliant quality as it’s originally from Marks & Spencer. There’s not a mark or fray on it whatsoever. I can totally see me getting lots of wear out of this. I can’t wait to pair it with my Dr Martens.
What do you think about my bargain find? Do you love leopard print?
I’d love you to join in with my style challenge, all you have to do is tag me on Instagram (@thismamablogs) and use the hashtag #CharityShopStyleChallenge. I can’t wait to see what bargains you pick up.
