Recent Bargains.

Thought I'd post a few pics of my recent buys. Please excuse the fact I've taken the pics in my mirror and the fact my mirror has a sticker mark on it. My granddad has a second hand/antique shop and insists on using these stickers that don't come off until you soak and scrub them. Suffice to say I haven't got round to it yet. But hey I can't complain I get lots of antique furniture and bric a brac for free. 

Fab 1970s maxi dress. RSPCA £2.99! I feel like Mildred Roper in it!


60s style topshop dress 99p eBay. I'm going to a 60s night on Friday and I reckon I'll wear this little beauty!


I went to a wedding last week and wore this 70s style jumpsuit. £17 on aBay but I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it and I accessorised with a 70s floppy hat. I looked like a young Margo Leadbetter. Obvoiusly wore a top underneath as its March and freezing!


Got this 70s style Dorothy Perkins maxi dress for the summer. £5 from Cancer Research. 


My mum works in my granddads shop and she puts aside a few bits she thinks I'd like. She looks at something and if she hates it and thinks it's old tat then I'm sure to like it. Went in on Thursday and this little lady was waiting for me. I fell in love with this picture as soon as I saw it. It now has pride of place next to Twiggy on my bedroom wall.
