400 pence Dress - outfit post.

There are those charity shops that always seem to come up trumps. Such a charity shop invariably always seems to also be out of your usual locality. Like the ones where my folks live which have afforded me such treasure as The Mint Green Cardy Dream.

And this £4 dressings.

Yep. A whole 400 pence. It is light weight and has been a staple for me this summer (read: sunless wasteland) with a pair of wedge heels or sandals.

But now, as we head into Autumn, I am pleased to think that this shall make the cross over. A pair of brogues or even wellys and thick brown leggings for those snow days when they arrive and I go off for a walk to "see what I can see". Snow mainly. And dog mess that is delightfully hightlighted and annoyingly not collected by the owner.

I don't know how many tan belts I own. Thankfully they all come from the emporium of cheap staples; Primark. The frock also goes nicely with the aforementioned Mint Cardy.

Do you think I could ever get my hair to look like this again? In a month of wet and miserable Sundays? Not a chance. So I had to take a photo for posterity. I love that spiral at the front, but it refuses to be replicated.



  1. Gorgeous hair! But I know that feeling well. Take a photo now... you'll never, ever see the same thing again. ;P

    Lovely dress! I can't even remember the last time I found something half that great at a thrift store, sad to say!

  9. That frock rocks,and so does the hair!!! I was thinking I should try curling my hair,but the thought of the effort and how likely I am to succeed makes me depressed!!! I'll just admire you instead!!XXX

  10. I am sure the spiral of amazingness will come back one day. You just have to BELIEVE.

    Your hair has been tamed down. I reckon you will get that curl again.

  13. Great bargain - the dress looks lovely. Your hair always looks good; if I think of people with fab vintage-style hair, you're always on the list. Probably at the top!

  14. Super lady! Love that dress. A whole 400 pence you say. Ah the dizzying luxury.

    Your hair is amazing. I do the photo thing too. Photos never go frizzy, sigh.

  15. that curl is super cute!! You should definitely try that again :) although I know exactly what you mean about happy accidents, great while they last, but never able to recreate...boooo!

    I really like that dress too, really suits you and that little belt really does it.

  31. Today, I went to the beach front with my children.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
    and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
    it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I
    had to tell someone!
