White Belt

I bought this red dress with a white floral pattern a few weeks ago when my favourite charity shop had a sale of their remaining summer stock. It only cost me £2.50. I tend to prefer dresses with sleeves and I don't normally wear red from choice. However, at that price I was happy to make an exception!

The white belt had been in my wardrobe for a long time and I think it gives the outfit a finishing touch. Do you agree?

You won't have seen me in leather boots before as I have not had a pair for some 10 years or more. However I spotted this pair, which were quite high, in a charity shop a few days ago and did not think that they would fit. I tried them on and was most surprised that they did and were extremely comfortable!

They cost £10.00 and will be ideal to keep my feet dry and warm during the coming winter.

Do you like wearing leather boots in winter?

Royal Blue Shirt & Carnival

I bought a Royal Blue Shirt this week for £1.50. In the photo I have paired it with my black work jacket and trousers. I think the colours compliment each other but would welcome your opinions.

The weather has certainly got colder recently here in the UK but luckily it was dry and fairly mild for our local illuminated carnival a few days ago. Some 40 floats (decorated tractors and trailers) and some individual walking entries formed a spectacular procession which took nearly 2 hours to pass.

Turquoise Dress

This photo was taken a few months ago as I would not be wearing this dress outside without a coat at the moment. It is much colder and foggy in the UK.

I bought this dress a while ago for £4.00 and it is in one of my favourite colours. It is also a length which I prefer reaching my knees and is nice and modest around the neck.

My sandals are shaded by the bush but are actually gold in colour and cost £2.50.

No new charity shop purchases this week but I will keep looking as always and hope to find something to tell you about next week.
