the 50p skirt
A couple of weeks ago, myself and Steve went along to our local car boot sale, which was on a rather rainy, cold and windy morning. (I hear it's supposed to be summer right now, but you could have fooled me.) Apart from the small, cute collection of teacups that I managed to accumulate, and the vintage bedding which I used to make a dress, I also spotted this skirt amongst a huge pile of clothes. It was one of those double take situations, I saw the camel and navy blue striped combination, and in I dived! Not in a mood to ponder, due to the rain lapping down on my face, I handed over the 50 pence that the stall holder had asked for. And, I must say, I am very glad I did! I finally tried the skirt on this morning (it had been at the bottom of our washing bag since that very morn), I thought that it would be too small, but it's a pretty good fit! It's a great length too, I think it will look splendid with some sandals when the sunshine comes back :) Steve however, thinks it looks 'circus-y', which I don't think is a bad thing at all!
What has been your best bargain from a car boot sale? I think I would struggle to pick mine, maybe one day I will do a post of all of my favourites :)
