A Dress Bought Earlier

Another post on a dress I bought last summer. This is because my charity shop trips have been curtailed this week by a bad cold. I didn't do a post on this dress at the time as I spotted a flaw in my tights after the photo was taken! I have managed to crop it out to save my embarrassment.

The dress cost £4.00 but I have not worn it that much as I am not that keen on the design of the shoulders. I do like the floral pattern though and I may give it another try when the weather warms up.

What do you think?

Thinking of Summer!

I didn't find any new bargains in charity shops this week so I thought I would do a post on a dress which I bought last July. I never got around to writing about it at the time. With temperatures of about 5C and cloudy skies in the UK at the moment, it is good to look forward to the time I will be able to wear this dress outside in warm sunshine!

It cost me £4.00 and has a light blue and navy floral pattern on a light green background. It is of a length I prefer - too many dresses are too short to satisfy my modesty standards.
Are you already looking forward to warmer temperatures and blue skies?

Two Very Different Pairs of Trousers

I have been wanting to buy some different styles/colours of trousers for some time and I managed to get two completely different pairs last week.
I really wanted a pair of trousers in a totally different colour. Most of my trousers so far have been in black which has made them suitable for wearing to work so when I saw this pair in my size in New Look I decided to try them on. They are very comfortable and the pale shade of mauve makes them different to anything else in my wardrobe.   
They are in a straight leg style and a little tight around my bottom so I will wear them with a long top in public to preserve my modesty. They cost me £15.00 and it is a real change for me, being a charity shop addict,to buy a brand new item of clothing!
The second pair of trousers came from a charity shop and cost just £2.50 on a half price rail. These
 have wide legs and are quite modest in style. You cannot see the outline of my legs when I wear them and they are not tight around my bottom. In view of a lack of labels it makes me wonder if they could have been hand made. They are in a fairly thick woollen material so nice and warm in colder weather.
In view of the modest style I am not too worried about wearing these in public without a long top or tunic and this is the first time I have asked Hannah to take a rear view for my blog!

What do you think?

New to me Blue Top

Although it is dull and damp outside in the UK at the moment I decided to buy a sleeveless top in a charity shop which I hope will be useful when the weather warms up in a few months. It cost me £1.00 so at that price I just had to buy it. It has a button front and a decorative belt which is great as it helps to make me look slim!
I think that it looks quite good with this grey/black skirt and my only pair of blue shoes. Do you agree?
