Red


Just to clarify - I'd never have confidence to actually wear this outfit out! It was more an opportunity to show off my new thrifted finds :D.

I went to the carboot this morning (a 6am start, aaah). This time, I was actually a seller, and I got rid of some old stuff that has been sitting in my cupboards for years. And I made a grand total of £13.90, just enough to cover the pitch fee! Oh well, at least I have more space now.

I did however manage to steal an hour for a bargain hunt, and came across this burgundy vanity case for £3. Isn't it cute? I found the bowler hat for 50p at another carboot, and the dress is a charity shop find. The shoes and cardi are 'thrifted' from my sister (shh).

Not quite sure what's going on in the second picture...



I feel a bit like a character from the film Madeline - did anyone watch it as a child?

I use to love Madeline. I still have all the books.
That hat is so cute and looks great with all the other ''finds''

Precious!~Love you in the red, and the hat is so sweet. I also love Madeline- but you look far better than they do poor little uniformed dears.

This look is so cute, I love it! Me and a friend are planning to go sell at a car boot sale next week hopefully, I can't wait! I'll most likely end up spending more then I earn, but at least I'll have an excuse for needing new things?

Love the hat, cardigan, and dress! They look great together. You should totally wear at least those three out. The bag is great as well, but those three together are just perfect. Very Madeline.

Cloe said...

Ahhhhh, I hate that; when you try on an outfitter over and over and last minuet get scared and change.

But you looked adorable in it!

and Chloe was my favorite character in the Madeline series.
