If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen my recent charity shop bargains on Insta stories. A couple of weeks ago I picked up this skirt for a mere £3…brand new from M&S! I also scored a gorgeous deep purple velvet jacket from Next for £2 and a stunning fishtail skirt (also M&S) for £4.99! You’ll be seeing those here on the blog very soon.
The tag was still attached to this skirt – it was originally £34.99. It’s great quality, hangs nicely and fits well, as I’d expect from M&S. It has an elasticated waist so it’s also very comfortable. There’s still a chill in the air so I paired it with my black turtleneck jumper that I’ve worn so much over winter. As the skirt is long I chose my biker jacket to balance out the proportions, although I think a more cropped style would work better.
I’ve learned my lesson wearing fabric boots on a waterlogged garden, so these patent boots were ideal. I bought them after seeing them on Nancy who alerted me to some great Zara January sale bargains. I snapped up these boots, as well as a beautiful green embroidered pair that I’d first seen on Lisa…us bloggers are a bad influence on each other 😉 But I’m not going to feel guilty because this bronze faux leather pleated skirt and patent boots cost me a total of £10.99! Add to that my cute Asos cat bag which I bought on Ebay – new with tags for £10 including postage – and I think I did pretty well. Excluding the jacket, the outfit comes in at less than £30, which just goes to show that you don’t have to spend a fortune on clothes to look stylish.
