Charity Shop Haul

Now I have had a bit of a busy week (for me anyway) visiting my Grandparents and taking my sister on day trips during her last week of holidays, so I apologise for being a bit abscence in the blogging department.

Whilst at my Grandparents over in the Yorkshire Dales I took advantage of all the different little shops that are dotted around, mostly for the benefit of tourists. There was this old fashioned Apothecary shop that made me pratically cry with joy over all the homemade bath salts, perfumes, shampoos and soaps I could buy. Not only that but they also had a clothing section which sold the cutest pairs of frilly underwear I have ever seen, and I was just in the mind to make a purchase when my Grandma's dissaproving face looked over, so I moved on to the selection of Paul and Joe make up they sold. I was in a small, delightfully smelling, heaven. There were lots of other antique shops and unique quiant gifty shops that I ooed and ahed over until I came to the bottom of the hill and made it to the Charity/Vintage Shop.

Origionally I went in there in search of some shoes for a party, if you have read my Fact of the Week about Heels you will know about my hatred for heels, if not feel free to click here, and so I always try to purchase cheap pairs of heels so it doesn't matter when they only get worn once and thrown in the closet. So it was to my great surprise when I walked out of there with two pairs of heels (you heard me, two pairs!!) and a top. Including the hat that I had purchased in another shop earlier in the morning I had somehow managed to acquire an extra three items....again....

These pretty red suede shoes are Kurt Geiger, and only cost £4 and other
than a toe scuff are in really good condition.
A grey and black bowler style hat will come in useful and help top off
many an outfit, this was my Grandad's favourite
purchase (my Grandad is very into fashion).

A close up of a crop cardigan I am turning into a top for going out. And
a pair of shoes which are a bit vampy for me if I do say so myself.
