These past few weeks I've been struggling to find things to post about. Not because I've suddenly abandoned pre-loved and fallen for the lure of the High Street - fear not, that will never happen. But it's just been too hot for mooching around town so my charity shop visits have dwindled. Yes, the summer months means regular car boot sales, but it also means full-on super-busy calender so we simply haven't had the time to pick up any bargains.
So, I thought I'd share with you a purchase from a month or so ago which has quickly become my new favourite garment. When others were fretting for months about what to wear to blogging conferences, I wore this top to Cybher that I'd bought a couple of days previously in a chazza for £3.99. And do you know what, SO many people complimented me on it.
It's a Red Herring top, long in the body so prefect to wear over skinny jeans or leggings, or maybe thick tights in the Autumn. I love the folksy floral pattern and the jade and purple colours. But most of all, I love the sleeves. Ruby calls them wings, and I think she has a point!
I even wore it to collect my Bafta*
Do you find the summer months more or less fruitful for second-hand shopping? Are you out every Sunday stomping round fields rummaging in people's car boots, or are you too busy doing other stuff?
I'd love you to grab the badge and link up your finds so I can get my buzz.
*That may be a lie.
