All you need is LOVE… and a bit of imagination… and some charity shopping

I don’t really buy into the whole Valentines thing, but I do like the idea of showing someone that you care, I am a little bit romantic…

I put together some bargains that I got from charity shops, markets and a bit of high street. Above is my gorgeous 1980’s vintage jacket from the Salvation Army. The graphic print is eye popping with the red and black combination, fabulous!  It cost a rather cheap £2.50. I love this piece as I wear it in the summer over denim shorts and in the winter over a jumper and jeans. The fluffy jacket below was from a little vintage sale that I went to over the weekend at The East End Thrift Store. It worked out to cost around £3.00. I feel like a ‘hug in a mug’ but I like it! The red frilly shirt below was also from the same sale and cost around the same price. It’s a lovely quality cotton shirt but those frills give it stand out factor, which is me all over. Image

This is two head pieces from London’s Spitalfields market. £1.00 each, the twisting you can do yourself!

To be creative is so much more thoughtful than to just buy something that costs £100’s. A little surprise idea with a VERY small price tag. £1.00 each. Happy Valentines!

Although I am still leaving this picture on the fridge…
