Outfit post: I'm with the (hair)band
This whole outfit is secondhand. Our butcher has closed so we're having to drive to Devizes to the other branch; the lemonade I'm making from this is using it as a chance to explore a completely different set of charity shops, and this orange T-shirt was one of two I picked up there last weekend. The other one is lime green. Pretty colourful for a former goth. I got rid of my tatty old longsleeved jersey tops a month or two ago; they'd hit the point of being all shapeless and never quite coming clean in the wash, and I had planned to replace them with proper blouses, but I haven't really got the funds to buy several new blouses, and I just wanted something that was easy to clean and didn't need ironing. T-shirts it is, then. Yes, I am a slob.
The skirt is 1990s M&S. 1997, to be precise - there's a copyright on the label. It's houndstooth, and a slightly odd mix of colours, with black and olive plus thin stripes of rusty brown and cobalt blue. It's knee-length, and I really like it. That cost me £8, which is more than I'd usually pay for something in a chazza, but it's pure wool and in perfect condition, and will get loads of wear. I topped the whole lot off with my brown Dents bag and brown velvet jacket (NOT chazza, but still secondhand - it's a 70s one I bought from Kinky Melon).
Right, let's Tuesday!
