A few weeks ago, I spent the day shopping in London with my mum. I say London, but we actually spent the whole day in just one street in London!
One street in Hammersmith to be precise.
And this one street had 4 good reasons why it took a whole day to complete:
1. It had a pub.
2. It had the second biggest Primark I've ever seen (second to the Oxford Street one).
3. It had some thrift shops...
4. …Oh no sorry, there wasn't a 4th, I just love making extra long lists with the last item being totally irrelevant.
I picked up this fully embroidered skirt in one such thrift shop for a mere £3.
Since I've got a bit slap happy with my sewing box, I very nearly re-hemmed this to make it a fraction shorter. But, I'm so glad I didn't. It's the sort of skirt that starts to ride a bit as the day goes on. Any shorter and I've have been showing off me bloomers to all and sundry come tea time – oooh Matron!
Wide hot pink belt... was a bargainistic £1 from Tesco.
DON'T FORGET! For any budding writers or bloggers out there, I'm offering the chance to be published in the February issue of my magazine... click here for more details.
