thrifting is fun

I went to s Charity Shop yesterday for the first time in this country yesterday. I was really surprised as I thought the stuff in there would be old and useless, although I was wrong. My sister, Jess, had told me about it a few days ago and I decided to have a look :)
Was interesting, clean and had a lot of choice variety, and really cheap. I mean, it was no Oxfam, but St Lukes was pretty cool.

I found this 1950's elasticated waisted floral shirt . . . I was loving it, so bought it and a shirt. Thrifting is fun.
Louise, of Coffee and a Cardigan is good at finding great things in these stores, and so I thought I'd try too :)

what I'm wearing

floral skirt - thrifted
