Being Thrifty.

I've always been one for a bargain, something which you will be well aware of if you follow my blog regularly. Hunting around charity shops, Depop and eBay are some of my favourite past times, which can be hit or miss sometimes. However recently I've picked up a few exciting buys, so I though I'd share them with you.

Jack Wills dress - £3.50

This is just the prettiest, ditsy print dress. The floral pattern is just perfect for heading into autumn. It's also in perfect condition and so well made, I just can't wait to wear this. This style retails around £60 on the Jack Wills website.

Hand Made Green Jumper - £3

I spotted this the second I walked into the shop and knew I had to have it. Green is easily my favourite colour to wear and the knit of this jumper is gorgeous. This has actually been hand made, which made it even more of a great find.

Jones + Jones Dress - £8

I've been hunting Depop for weeks looking for a dress for my graduation ball. I'm not a 'fancy' girl so just wanted something that was very me. I love the style of Jones + Jones dresses and when I saw this was being sold for less than a tenner I knew I had to grab it. I have a few other options for my grad ball but this is certainly in the running. These pretty dresses retail around £60.

Ariel Print - £2.50

I picked this up from a Depop seller who hand makes the prints. The Little Mermaid is my all time favourite Disney film so I couldn't resit ordering this. It's such a pretty print and will look fab in my loft when we've finished decorating.

Russ Cheri Teddy - £1.50

After doing a little research I found that this bear is a Valentine's Day limited edition called Cheri. I'm a sucker for teddies and this was just sat all alone, so it had to come home with me. It is immaculate with it's tag still on. She's now sat happily on my rocking chair.

They are my latest finds, do you like being thrifty?

  1. Wish I was a little more thrifty, but I just never have the time to sift through charity shops, and having worked in one before, get a little freaked out thinking about previous owners!xx

  4. That Jack Wills dress is gorgeous, reminds me of a pretty floral number I had from H&M before it got a little bit too short for public wear... Definitely inspired me to take a look around the charity shops - trying to save money at the moment so this is the perfect way to buy some new stuff without spending a lot!x

  5. The Jack Wills dress is so pretty and such a good bargain! I love knowing I've got a bargain but I'm not very good at sorting through things to find them x

  6. Great blog!
