Polka Dots & Autumn Air
21 October 2011
There are some really good charity shops in my University town, but I never get the chance to properly have a look in them and do them justice. However, I was able to the other day, and was lucky enough to find a couple of items that I just couldn't resist buying!
1) Polka Dot Shirt;
As soon as I saw this, I knew I had to buy it. Polka dots feature quite a lot in my wardrobe, they go with nearly everything and just add a little something to even the plainest of outfits. I love the fit of this shirt, it's a bit too big for me, but with a waist belt or tucked into something high-waisted it's perfect!
2) Flower Print Blouse;
I love this blouse, I love the colour, the buttons, the collar, the pocket, basically everything about it! It's just a shame it's a tad too big, but I quite like it a bit baggy over a tight dress, or cinched in with a waist belt. Ah, I just love it, I could happily wear this everyday, I'm glad it's starting to get colder now so I can wear it with a chunky knit and have the collar on show!
3) Last but not least, Dark Blue Velvet Maxi Dress;
You can't really see in the pictures, but this dress is a lovely dark blue colour. For some reason, whenever I think of autumn and winter clothing, velvet is one of the first things I think of, for wearing at Christmas parties and on Christmas Day. I love the colour and the shape of this dress, but the length swamps me, plus there is a massive split at the back, which ends on my thigh. I'm going to do some playing around with it and shorten it by quite a bit. I can just imagine wearing this as a mini dress, cinched in at the waist with a slight flair, whilst eating a roast back home!
Have you found any hidden gems recently in charity shops? After finding these, I'm definitely going to have a look more often! What are you favourite things to wear in the autumn and winter?
Love, Charlestown xoxo.
