Exam time thrifting!

Getting stressed because my exams start on Thursday...



So instead of cramming in some extra studying, I go shopping! I feel quite guilty but I got some bargains. I live on a street with at least 5 charity shops so I'm always having a look about to see what I can get. Today I got a missguided dress & a pastel coloured vintage vest.


This was £7.50 from Cancer Research & I'm dying to wear this! I love white dresses with black blazers so I can't wait to make this into an outfit.


I bought this for £1 from Marie Curie. Loved the colours of this vest as soon as I set eyes on it. I'm going to pair it with high waisted denim shorts & gold chains.

Living so close to all these charity shops I often find really nice pieces! These are a few of my favourites that I've bought recently!


The shoes are from New Look which I got for £1 from Marie Curie, the bag was also from Marie Curie & was £2.50.  The coca-cola t-shirt was £1 from a local charity & the shorts were £5 from a Barnardo's in the west end.

Do you think thrifting is a good way to save money & get unique pieces? What have been your best buys??? Let me know! xo

    I may have to start browsing the clothes now in hopes of finding some gems of my own.

    2. I may have to hold you to that; I'm a terribly un-inventive in the kitchen!
