I have seriously been spending a lot lately, but luckily I’ve been getting quite a lot for my money’s worth.
Susie Bubble wrote about The East End Thrift Store on her blog so I decided to go and check it out today, and it really was a goldmine! I was looking for a shirt dress, but all the ones there were from the 80’s and had big bat-wing sleeves, which was totally not what I was looking for, but I found some other treasures:
Green silk dress £10.
I know this dress is most likely from the 80’s, but the detail on the sleeves give it a bit of a 40’s feel to it, plus the material is really elegant. Also, I love the pearl buttons!
Purple gingham dress £10.
This really reminds me of the summer dresses I had to wear in primary school, except mine were blue, and nowhere near as cute as this one.
White and pink stripe skirt £10.
I really love this summer skirt, especially because there’s enough material to wear a full petticoat underneath it to give it a bit more of a 50’s feel.
Red belt £5.
I’ve been meaning to get a red belt for ages, but I could never find one that I liked enough, but this one is just perfect – and for only £5!
I also got some other bits when I was around brick lane:
Wayfarer sunglasses £10 Lady Luck Rules Ok
Floral dress £16 Beyond Retro
Elvis album £7 Beats Workin’ Records
Elvis gospel album £5 Beats Workin’ Records
Red purse £11.50 eBay
Plus, today my MAC eyeliner was delivered; in a bit of an unnecessary package I might add:
Nevertheless, it has stayed on all day without flaking, so well done MAC!
