Charity Shop Buys!







I was in town yesterday and decided to pop into one of the charity shops.  I managed to pick up three awesome things in a tiny amount of time and am so happy with what I got!  I got the (brand new!) white knit jumper for £4, the real leather jacket for £8.75 and the brand new H&M drawstring bag for £1.50!  They're probably some of the best I've found, especially in one shop!  The jacket seemed a bit pricey at the time, but when I showed my mum after I bought it she was amazed that it was going so cheap as it's a proper vintage biker jacket, in really good condition.  You can also see my dip dyed hair in these photos, this is the result of two washes, the pink has completely vanished (after just one wash!) and the purple has faded a little, and is verging on blue, but I will be re-dyeing it tomorrow so I can wear my extentions again! (I dip dyed my extentions pink & purple too so I can only wear them when my hair matches) 

I also bought some Doc Marten boots yesterday to wear for college as my favourite black boots broke, and I've got really flat feet, so need shoes with proper support rather than flimsy dolly shoes, but we went into TK Maxx afterwards and found some nicer boots, for cheaper so I will be returning the Docs!  It's probably not a bad decision, as I was a little iffy about wearing the docs, as they are so clunky and large.  I'll maybe do a post on the chosen boots soon, and they will definitely feature in a good few outfit posts! (:
