Nearly there...

Hey there!
Nearly the weekend (though I am working, boo!) and nearly payday, score. I have a few things lined up that I must buy. I wore this outfit yesterday, and I am quite mortified that it is almost all from Primark. Nothing against Primark, obviously, I just prefer to mix Primark stuff up a bit with other high-street or vintage stuff...to dilute the cheapness perhaps. Or maybe so that if the poorly sewn seems all fall apart I wouldn't be totally nude.


Dress and cardigan - Primark, tights - tightsplease, bag - H&M, bracelet and pearls - vintage via ebay.

Today on the way home from work, I did a quick bit of thrifting (quick because everywhere was closing!) and got this skirt. When I find my fabric scissors (lost, along with the instruction for the sewing machine I borrowed from my Mum - ooops!) imma snip this baby up and have me a bad-ass Luella-esque skirt. My two new obsessions are tartan/plaid and lace, I think both will play a large part in my winter wardrobe. Which brings me to a question; what are your guys' favourite ebay/etsy searches?
Please excuse the awful photography! Am I the last person in the world to hear about Luella being sold in Urban Outfitters? I read this amazing piece of information on another blog but have forgotten where, sorry! I must start saving now for something, anything!

Must go now, Char x

I like your outfit! And that skirt would probs look really good Luella-style. There was a plaid one in the autumn/winter collection too. Can't wait to see how your skirt turns out =]

Hello,

I'd love to exchange links (have already added you to my link list!). I really like the outfit - it's really cute. As for etsy and ebay searches, I don't really have a pattern I think, searching for the same things. It depends on what I'm lusting for at the moment - then I search for that thing until I find it, and then, something new.

I always start tinking of what I want every pay day it's so bad especially when you try to save!
Love the plaid looks though!
