AA skirt, car boot sale, £1 - Zara skirt, charity shop, 50p - H&M maxi dress, car boot sale, 50p
I've been really rather lucky on the secondhand shopping front as of late, above is only a small fraction of what I have recently bought. I've also found a couple more jumpers to add to my collection (including a rust H&M jumper with adorable elbow patches!), a little black backpack, a few books, a pair of polka dot trousers and a handful of scarfs. Last week whilst volunteering in my favourite charity shop, a lady donated a bag full of mainly grey and cream jumpers, so I couldn't resist holding some back for myself to buy at the end of the day. I mean, a Jaeger jumper for fifty pence! Oh, the joys of working in a charity shop, I get to have first pick of the latest donations! On the same day I also bought the Zara skirt I wore in my previous post, and coincidently whilst at Battersea car boot sale yesterday with the Purple Boot Media team I saw an almost identical grey skirt which will make a lovely addition to my wardrobe. The blossom photographs were taken in Battersea Park on Saturday, where on the same day I also bumped into the lovely Georgia in my favourite charity shop! I was pretty awkward to say the least, but it was great to meet her, she has such amazing style. Would you be interested in seeing more posts similar to this where I share what I have recently bought? Love, Jazzabelle.

  7. I'm impressed by your Jaeger jumper bargain - whenever you write about all these pieces you get first pick of, it makes me want to go and volunteer in my local charity shop!
    The blossom hasn't started sprouting yet here, but it looks really beautiful.

  26. I've been having rotton luck in charity stores lately! I'm hoping people will have spring cleans soon though! I love the jumpers you've picked up. They look really nice.

    And Battersea Park looks so beautiful.

  27. Awe, those flowers and blossoms are spectacular! :D They make me smile!

    Of course, I'm interested in seeing what you've bought! I need to learn how to sort out what has potential and what doesn't in a thrift store. This weekend we went to Hollywood again and I could buy a shirt I'd seen weeks ago but didn't buy. I regretted so much not having bought it then, but I was so lucky to still find it in the vintage store :)!

    Have a nice week! Hugs!

    I love how you put this together. The clothes on that pretty bedspread. Love how you desaturated it all and some great finds. 50p for a cream Jaeger jumper, Roz will be green with envy ; )

  68. I think you pull of these muted, block colours really well, there is both a simplicity and complexities to how you dress. You combine different shades and tones together which I love, I think I admire it because I dress with patterns and bold colours and sometimes indulge in something more subtle, but I'm not very good at it! Also, did I mention I need to get myself over to your charity shop & boot fair? Probably every time I comment! But still, I shall try and drag my boyfriend along with me soon.

  69. I love the photos of things strewn on your bed... maybe it has to do with the photos, but they're immensely evocative, and beautiful
