I have collected so many dresses from charity shops over the last few years I am losing count! And getting them all up on this blog has been on my to do list for pretty much the whole of 2013….so now we are in a new year and there is no better time than now.
To help I bought myself a present, a dress makers bust! Now I can take pictures of all my fabulous charity shop purchases more easily, and without looking like a total goon in them too.
This post is all about floral (surprised?) dresses, some vintage, some Primark rejects, but all bought for a mere few pounds.
The first is a lovely pale green/grey number originally from H&M, but bought in a Cancer Research shop in Welshpool for £3.
The next one is a primark number, bought from Scope in Hackney for £5. I absolutely love this dress, the cut is gorgeous and it has these lovely little buttons on the bust.
This one is a Topshop number, and is a great summer dress, with very cute detailing on the back. Also bought from a Hackney charity shop for £5.
The next is a gorgeous silky dress, originally from Next, bought for £6 from Helen and Douglas house in Didcot. the autumnal colours are lovely, and the fit is perfect. I wore this out to an afternoon tea with my housemates Kirsty and Fee.
This next one is another primark number, but I just fell in love with it. Another purchase from Scope in Hackney for £6, it is a little tight on me, but I couldn’t help myself. The pattern is so cute, and the lattice detailing on the back gives it a little something extra.
This dress was bought from Mind in Stoke Newington for £9. I love the floral pattern and that it could also be worn as a smart dress for work.
This next dress is an international purchase, bought in a jumble sale for 1 euro in Ceglie Messapica, Itlay. Bought at the same time of one my other favourite dresses, this looks lovely in the summer worn with a brown waist belt.
Lastly, this dress is one of my all time favourites. Not actually bought from a charity shop, but from a garden sale in Clapton, Hackney, for £5. The length and cut is gorgeous and I wore it several time last summer, including posing on a Vespa in Brighton 🙂
