Car Boot Loot

Okay, so here's the deal: I love car boot sales.

Why?

  • You can buy interesting and unusual clothes that you KNOW no one else will have
  • £20 can go amazingly far (no really)
  • Ridiculously expensive clothes that I could never dream of owning full price can be bought-brand new and at the most £5 (seriously, once bought a £180 leather jacket for £4-tags still on)
  • It is the only place in England where it is widely acceptable to haggle like a shameless cheapskate :)

Anyways, if by some silly reason you have never been to a boot sale, here is my day:









Here's what I bought:




-A fantastic vintage Gerard Darel blazer that would suit every occasion-




-A lovely vintage skater dress-



-Denim Waistcoat-


-Not my usual style but I plan to cut it up and make it less scary and more fashionable

-A potential 'granny dress' but with some altering hopefullly will become a garden party worthy dress-
-This absolutely stunning Burberry Prorsum shirt with this beautiful design on the back-





-A tailored jacket that would be fantastic for work-


-The most unique pair of teal silk trousers, made a B-line for it as soon as it caught my eye-






-Finally this gorgeous pair of leather aztec-style boots-




Sorry for such a picture heavy post but I hope you enjoyed :)
