There is a branch of Oxfam which I used to be in practically every day (when I worked in the area of Leicester that it is located), but I rarely get a chance to have a browse anymore. However, a few days ago I thought I would pop in as I was on my way to the post office (to post some What Katie Found sales - yippee!) And what did I find? This cute Laura Ashley top for a mere £2.99!
I love that it's polka dot, and I love the button fastenings on either side. I think that it would look a lot better worn with some high waisted trousers or a skirt though, annoyingly, I have neither of these.
I brought another Laura Ashley item when I was in Luton last weekend visiting my family, a purple corduroy dress (again with button fastenings at the side and at the shoulders) for £4. I had a little chat with the elderly lady working there about how I much prefer the old Laura Ashley prints and designs compared to modern ones. I'd almost forgotten that I had even purchased it, so I will have to get some photographs of that soon to share with you all!
I seem to have developed a skill for hunting out vintage Laura Ashley items recently, not a bad skill to have acquired if you ask me!
