day six : bargains.

I do a lot of my shopping at charity shops and recycling centres. I love things that have a past and a story, even if I don't know what it is. And I love things that are cheap. Below is a collection of some of my favourite buys and bargains!


I saved Alfred the dog from a life of loneliness, and fell in love with Julia at the tip.


This sweet tray was also from the tip, and was dirt cheap!


I haggled the price down on these vintage scales at Totnes market.


Finding an on-trend cable knit jumper and some perfect leopard print loafers in charity shops made me happy.


I got this gorgeous oversized tee from Wallpaper Rose, and ended up buying another one not long after!


Went into Asda looking for a specific coat, but came out with this one which I ended up preferring x100! I'm still a little in shock that Adsa managed to make such a lovely, vintage-looking coat, and it was probably dirt cheap.


Mum got me this cat print shirt as an early birthday present! Love at first sight!


I had an AMAZING day in the Torquay charity shops. To see individual photos of what I bought, go to the original blog post!


I couldn't resist this distressed bag from River Island, that I ended up getting free thanks to a day out with Company Magazine.


These awesome shirts are from Total Jerk, and I consider them a bargain because they're so fucking good.


I found all these goodies in the Newton Abbot charity shops!


Created a whole outfit from things from the Andover charity shops!


Yet another suitcase from the tip! This one needs a good clean.


The shoes that I fell in love with will end up being a bargain because I will wear them so much.

Tomorrow is the last day of my blog birthdayweek. I'll be going through the highlights of my year (both on and off the blog) and it'll be the last day you can enter the giveaway!
