Getting my thrift on, in the East :)

So yesterday, I went on a road trip with my fabulous friend, Shel. We went to the The East End Thrift Store for their 'fill a bag' sale. The gist of it was to fill either a small bag for £10, or a big bag for £20. I found a few treasures there and walked away with a huge bag, full of clothes. Shel also managed to throw her finds in with mine - all for the bargain price of £20! Here’s a little peak at my gold:
I *adore* vintage dresses (especially when they're granny dresses!). The colour and the print are lovely.

You can't go wrong with a tweed blazer, and there were many on display. This is the one I got.

I also managed to find a jumpsuit that needs to be altered a little; and a skirt, which I'm going to put an elastic waist on. I will no doubt show you those, when I've worked my magic (or more likely, have had someone else to do it for me. ;p)

I wanted to wear something that I could throw myself around in, in comfort, but still look nice, so I turned to one of my favourite places – Lady Vintage London. This is the cutest print and I decided to wear comfy Grey wholly tights with it:
Dress: Lady Vintage London
Cardigan: South (via Very)
Belt: Dorothy Perkins
Tights: Marks & Spencer
Shoes: So Fabulous (via Very)

Oh, and there's the small matter of buying the best hot water bottle, EVER!! 

Hope you all had a brill weekend!

Love and hugs,
