A gorgeous dress for a £1.00. I found this bargain cast aside on the £1.00 rail. Plonked outside, almost like no one would want it. I couldn’t believe my luck! The retro print is brilliant! I love dresses with pockets too. This dress has huge pockets. I think it’s 1970’s possibly late 1960’s, but either way, a good little find.

Monochrome keeps forever!

Another day another find…

If I see monochrome, in whatever way it manifests itself, I have to have it. It’s timeless! It’s lovely to mix with other prints, it looks gorgeous with block colours, it looks especially fab with neon brights… It’s an all year, any season colour combination… and did I say I love it! The black and white shirt above is originally from Primark and I do not know why anyone would give this to charity. Obviously it’s a good deed giving to charity but this is such a classic piece. Well that persons loss is my multi season gain. The pencil skirt is a beautiful vintage 1980’s wool piece. Check out the little discreet button detail at the back… an interesting little design feature.

Tasty 1980’s power blazer from Saint Francis Hospice

This a the finest shade of red there is! This bright postbox red is one of my complimentary colours. Tartan, £2.50, and bright. It’s a serious 1980’s power blazer, love it! When I found this blazer I decided to look at the different types of tartan that are out there. Thinking to myself there would be only a few but there is actually hundreds. Tartan as we all know is particularly associated with Scotland and the kilt. I think this jacket is inspired by a the MacDonell of Keppoch Modern tartan which is a predominantly green and orange tartan. MacDonell was was the most frequently registered ‘Mac’ name in Scotland (a little fact for you). For me tartan is very much a timeless fashion purchase. This jacket brings a simple t-shirt and jeans to life, just add some matching lippy! If you see tartan and your brave enough to wear it… get it!
