Here's how we wear: A thrifted piece

Ahh Friday. The time everyone gets ready for the weekend. Although most weekends now will be spent snuggled up with some good TV, and lots of biscuits. It's allowed. Friday is also that time when I share some bloggers with you, and their super fabulous styling.
This week, my three bloggers are actually BIG fans of the chosen piece. I don't blame them, they look ace! So, whether it be a hand me down, something that probably costs less than a bag of chips, or those one of a kind finds... Yep, this week it's all about:
A thrifted piece.

Rhiannon says "This is my new favourite outfit. I can't stop wearing it! These velvet shorts from a charity shop were actually trousers which I shortened! I found this little sailor collared blouse for £4 too, and I think the cream colour and floaty fabric looks beautiful with the velvet shorts!"
I say "Finding a vintage item is always the best feeling. Knowing it's a one off! I chose this vintage dress, and teamed it with a simple blazer and boots, so the dress can do the talking. If only it did.. I'd love to know who lived in it before..."
El says "It is a vintage cape which nurses wore from the incarnation of the NHS up until the mid 1980s. I found it in a charity shop a few years ago when capes were a huge deal on the catwalk. Everytime I wear it, I have some lovely compliments about it although I'm not sure old nurses quite 'get' me gallivanting around wearing their old uniform!"
Naomi says "This vintage pencil skirt is one of my favourite items of clothing ever. I've styled it with a short sleeved knit, a denim biker jacket and fail safe tan belt and brogues for a daytime look."

  4. For some reason I totally didn't click that Mrs Thrifty's real name probably wasn't actually Thrifty....

  9. I love vintage clothes so much and always get seriously envious when I see other people's finds... I'm just not good enough at rifling through stuff to find the gems! I'm such a lazy shopper!
