New In: Two Tone & Teddy Bears

Hey guys!

Over the past week or so i've picked up a few things here and there from my charity shop job and a little trip to Oxford Street.  I thought i'd share them with you as quite a few are thrifted and relatively cheap!

First up my charity shop finds! I'm really enjoying working there, i sort out all the donations throughout the day and unfortunately for my bank account i'm always seeing things i like! They are all under £5 though and i think the guilt of spending is reduced when it's a bargain and it's helping others out right!?

First up this t-shirt i found when i was just about to take the stock out to the shop floor!  I must admit it is very oversized but the gangsta teddy sold it for me! I did a little DIY and stitched up the sleeves in an attempt to make it look a bit more trendy rather than a souvenir. I secured the sleeves with simple loop stitches and i love it now! I think this'll be great to throw on at uni and it cost me 70p.

Found this next purchase in the Men's jumper section in the charity shop.  It's a Ralph Lauren jumper and again it is absolutely massive. I thought i'd get it anyway as it was a bargain and i thought it would serve me well for Autumn/Winter. It was £3.

So i saw this raincoat a while ago in the rails and loved the two tone colours but it swamped me when i initially tried it on.  After a week it was still there and i took it as a sign and got it anyway! I realised that you could tighten the bottom and sleeves, so now it doesn't look bad at all! It was £3 too!

That's it for the charity shop finds (so far!) I did get this cute little silicon notebook from Urban Outfitters as well. I don't know what i'll use it for but it reminded me so much of my lego ring i bought years ago in Spitalfields market and i thought it would be a great addition to my little lego inspired accessory collection.

And that's all i've gotten recently! Today has been rather good, i watched the Men's 100m Olympic final and it was EPIC, i was screaming so much and Twitter afterwards left me in tears! I'm really enjoying having these Olympics in London, watching them, hearing everyone talking about the sports, witnessing the great athletes and moments, i'm loving it! Anyway i hope you are all well!

  7. I loove all these! That tshirt is gorgeous!
    I've been considering getting a charity shop job just for Saturdays because I work all week, but on second thoughts I don't think I could afford to! Although at least you can feel less guilty; you're giving to charity! Not shopping! xx
