OOTD: Leather me up.

Excuse the gormless look on my mug, this is my latest eBay bargain – as far as I’m aware this skirt/similar versions are still being sold at Topshop for £40+ but I bagged mine for £9.50!  Remember the first rule of online shopping: Check eBay first! The vest top I’m wearing was £1 from H&M – YES £1 – WTF RIGHT?!

These leather look skirts are excellent for adding a bit of texture and sass to any boring outfit and can be paired with almost anything, it’s just a case of being creative and resourceful with what you’ve already got. I will be making this little number a staple piece from now on!

OOTD – THE £5 WONDER

OOTD

I’ve done a lot this summer; girls’ holiday, festivals, working a mundane summer job at 3am 4 days a week…

Needless to say my bank balance has been rather under the weather as of late, meaning my usual “TREAT YO SELF” shopping trips have completely gone out the window! When it comes to style though one must always remain creative and optimistic even on the darkest of days when the Newlook sale is suddenly way beyond your budget. On a trip to Lincoln to see my dear friend Hollie we decided to wander through its vast array of charity shops, which is where I found the H&M snake-print dress for £2.00 (snake print is my guilty pleasure, sorry), it was giving me an Alexa Chung vibe I just couldn’t say no to.

The shoes were actually from the previously mentioned girls’ holiday to the classy land of Kavos, Corfu. We thought it would be a good idea to catch a bus to Corfu Town, in such of fake Ray Bans and passable Mulberry purses – in reality all we found were very rude shop assistants in the few shops which were actually open. The shoes came from one of these very rude shop assistants, even though normally I would have just walked out after receiving such awful service but…well – these shoes were only €5 so I actually bought 2 pairs in different colours oops. I may be wrong here but I think that’s about £3? Giving me a beautiful grand total of FIVE POUNDS!! *Applause for the £5 wonder*
