Tally Ho corner * thrift store
I brought two items here, that were worth the price, fortunately I got them cheaper than I had anticipated....the first being an oversized boyfriend winter coat which is a statement jacket that has graced the front pages of magazines and catwalks this up coming year. Many designers have made different variations. The most popular being the Max Mara (read my previous blog). I like the one I spotted at the outlet as the material is warm and thick; outside the coat is more or less obstetrical grey. I brought this for £7 pounds ~ original priced at £70.
The last buy was a grey woven tartan scarf which I brought for £2 pounds It was a bargain. Tartan scarfs are being sold at retail outlets for more than £10 (I was at Primark the other day and redneck tartan scarfs were being sold at £18 pound's). I love the colours represented on the scarf as it makes it look more authentic.

I only brought one item here; when me and a friend went to visit the London School of Fashion* open evening (the school is great and quite modernized). As we were already at Central London we decided to do, quick combustion of spontaneous shopping, Primark had some hidden sale items. So I brought this lace blue tank top for £2. Through I realize that the possibility of wearing that is zero to one in the weather here in England.
I brought a golden threaded necklace there for £9 pound's (believe it or not but it was reduced down four pounds). I liked the necklace because of it's detailing and it is a rather statement piece.
My mother brought me new converses (see previous blog on summer shoes) I already own black pairs, so this time she brought white all stars. I admit I am quite sceptical in case I get them dirty but I am overjoyed as I prefer converses over any other practical shoe. She probably brought them for £40 pounds on the office website. She also went further and brought the film the Artist, I heard great reviews on the film and pressured her into finally buying it. I image she brought it from amazon priced at £12.
The Revlon shade "170" shade mint green I brought for £5 I no that it is a bit of an over-by for nail colour but I loved the shade it was a unique ( I also couldn't find a similar shade there). I brought another colour from miss sporty shade "6" a lilac purple, I loved the colour instantly as I have seen celeb's endorsing light purple; a buy of £1.99.
Another item my mother ordered I was quite flabbergasted it was from ASOS (another store I regularly shop at. It was a black skater skirt with a leather panel, I loved how it fits than obscures your figure. I took a glimpse at the receipt and she brought it for £12.
last item on the list is my monthly dose of Red Magazine, I quite like this mag, as it has a lot of editorial pages which gives me inspiration, (I am a inspiring fashion journalist, after all). The magazine is a different demographic and I find it more sophisticated than Shout or Bliss magazine.
