Yesterday's charity/thrift shop haul

Yesterday I had a couple of free hours to roam around town, so I took the opportunity to check out my local charity/thrift shops. I went into a few shops and didn't really find anything I liked or caught my eyes. Then I decided to check out this hidden little charity shop that I have avoided going to before, purely because it is out of my way. I was absolutely stunned by everything in there! they had an amazing selection of women's wear and also lots of other pretty bits and bobs.

And most importantly everything was super cheap! These days charity shops have started charging a lot more than they used to (due to recessions and hipsters). But this little shop was packed with really cheap, chic dresses! 

I found this perfect little red dress! I can't begin to tell you how perfect this dress is. The bustier enhances your bust area, the skirt is flared, with a petticoat underneath which gives the dress a ballerina look. Basically, this dress gives you the perfect hour glass figure ! And it only cost me £5 !!
(Oh, I forgot to mention that this is a brand new dress, the dress came intact with a price tag. )

Then I picked up this leather belt for 50p ! Yes 50p , you can't even buy a chocolate bar that cheap anymore. I love this belt because it has a worn look to it, and I prefer my leather worn. 

And finally I found this cute Winnie the Pooh photo album/scrap book for 99p!!! It's never been used and in perfect condition. I have great plans for this book, I think I am going to dedicate it to my dog (sadly he is getting really old now). And i would love to make a memory book for him. 

Enjoy your weekend and leave a comment =)
