peach or orange?

I brought two items of clothing at a car boot sale last Sunday, and in the early morning light, I was convinced that they were both 'peach' in colour, although now I am thinking that they are just orange, which worries me a little to be quite honest!  Orange is a colour which I really don't think that I can pull off.

This sweater was £1, and I love the crochet detail around the necklace.  Granny chic at it's best.

The second item is a strapless dress, which despite the scary colour, fits really well.  I just need an occasion to wear it!

I'm not really a fashion blogger, but I was quite pleased at the outfit I managed to construct last night, so here's a photograph!  

The car boot bargain in this photograph is the sandals, only 50p!  I don't often buy second hand shoes, for some reason I find it a bit weird, but these looked brand new, and for 50p I couldn't say no!  The denim jacket is from eBay and from what I remember cost a couple of pounds and the headscarf was £1 in a charity shop.

I'm off to another car boot sale bright and early tomorrow morning, so hopefully I will find some more bargains before the car boot season ends!  I will also be very busy this week getting things ready for the apples and pears and crafty wares sale in Nottingham next Saturday, I can't wait!  I have had a look at some of the other sellers that are attending, and it appears to me that it is going to be a splendid day!
