Coincidentally, both the dress and the jacket here were both bought from charity shops, but not by me. The dress was a gift from my boyfriend’s Sister, and the jacket was from my mum who found it in one of Didcot’s many charity shops. The dress is one of my all time favourites. Again, it was much longer when I was given it, so I took it up and sewed in a new hem (albeit a slightly dodgy one!) It is a silk dress, with a high neck line and a pleated skirt, and is simply glorious to wear. Here I have teamed it up with a denim shirt and trainers, to wear to Notting Hill Carnival.
