shirt & trousers: charity shop, brooch: vintage, shoes and belt: primark, rings: peaches and nothing & sisters
I took my velvet trousers home with every intention of customising them into a pair of shorts; but when I tried them on with this shirt I had second thoughts- so the 'DIYing' of these has been postponed, I probably will make them into shorts when I get bored of wearing them aha. Absolutely adore this shirt, another charity shop buy; it's really long so will look cute over some denim shorts in the summer as an almost dress. This is the first time I've worn my hair in a side parting in a while and my shaved bit is really too long to do it now... I just want it to grow back! Oh, I'm definitely wearing my 11 year old sisters shoes here, she's such a babe- she took these pictures for me too bless her.
Most of you will already know but thought I'd mention it just in case you don't: Motel are having a sample sale on thursday and friday this week from 10-7 in London at the Motel show room and with items from just £3!! This is when working full time drives me insane as I can't get to it, contemplated working in the London office and popping over on my lunch/ after I finish but I just don't have any money until pay day and with electricity bills of £79 to pay I am on a shopping ban. Only for another 8 days though ;)
I'm entering the ethical outfit competition over at the Ethical Fashion Blog I think it's such a good idea for a competition for us to show off our vintage pieces. I've chosen this outfit because I absolutely adore it, my velvet trousers & shirt were £4 each from charity shops and the brooch was a vintage gift. Hope you like my entry and go and enter yourselves... you have until the end of the 31st of March to get your entry in!!
