Charity Shop Treasures.

Hello dears, hope you are all well. A couple days ago me and my mum decided to go into town on a whim and see if there was anything good in the ol' charity shops. Sometimes when I go charity shop shopping I don't find many great items but this time we really weren't disappointed, I guess it was just one of those lucky days. As my mum is so lovely she decided to treat me to everything I got and even some tea with scones afterwards (loveyoumum).

In the first charity shop alone we found many a great item. This lovely denim shirt/ jacket being one of them.



It's originally from Firetrap and only cost £4.50. What a steal eh? I reckon I'm going to add a few studs to the collar or something, well I will when they bloody arrive. It still says they haven't been dispatched yet. Damn you Ebay!


This next Item has to be my fave, so much so that I am wearing it now. It's originally from Topshop and cost a measly £2.95.



 My mum actually found it and I fell in love instantly. It's literally just a basic crop top with sleeves but there was just something about it that made me like it so much. Maybe it was the colour or that a number of outfits featuring this item popped into my head. Either way, it is now mine! 



This little gem of a dress was another of my mums brilliant finds, originally from Warehouse but I can't remember how much it cost as I can't find the price tag after I excitedly pulled it off in order to try it as soon as we got home. It can't have been any more than a fiver making it a definite bargain. I can see myself styling this is so many ways so keep your eyes peeled.

  
I also bagged this copy of Catch-22 for just £1.50, now I must admit I have absolutely no idea what its about but one of my friends was reading and apparently its a classic. I'm such a poor excuse for a future English Literature student.

Although my aim for the summer is to read as much as humanly possible so perhaps by September I'll be a model student and wow everyone with my superb and diverse knowledge of Literature. 

I wish.


It'll be my grandma's 80th birthday in August so I picked her up this photo album and plan to fill it with lots of family photos. The only problem is my family isn't the sort to take very many pictures together so I'll have to round up the motley crew and get a few snaps. 

Well I reckon that's it for now, hope you enjoyed this post of my charity shop treasures so do comment if you would like to see more things like this. I have a few outfit posts lined up so expect one in a couple days. 

For now here's a bit if gaga:


 Because I had it stuck in my head.
