With the bad weather recently, I have not had an opportunity for outside photos but I found this one from August which I didn't get around to posting.
The knee length dress cost me about £4.00 (I can't remember exactly). I don't normally wear much in pink/red preferring blues and greens but I thought I would buy it for a change. It was a different style for me as well with the pleated effect and I added a belt around the middle.
However, I noticed a flaw in the material and decided to donate it back as the charity shop can get money for substandard garments/rags from recycling companies.
The black jacket I bought new and I often wear it to work over a white blouse.
Part of the fun of charity shop browsing is that you never know what you might find - but you do make mistakes and must take the rough with the smooth. Fortunately if you do make a mistake it is not costly!
