I don;t know HOW it happened!!! But I did! And the result was, erm, mucho satisfactory!!!:

1 pair Torquoise blue platforms
1 pair Patent Red kitten slingbacks
1 Dotty P Sequin, lowback top
1 Bay floral vesty top'
2 Dotty P Thick Cotton jumpers - long and loose to wear belted with leggings and boots
1 NEXT Black ruffly top
1 New Look Torquoise silk beaded tunic
1 Atmosphere Hot Pin silk beaded tunic
1 Kaleidoscope sage green jumper with sequin accents
1 unknown longline heavy charcoal cardi-vest
1 Jigsaw Embroidered suit (skirt and jacket)
AND 2 italian cheese plates! :D

35.00! Can he complain??? I think not!

DOH!!! All I went after was some grocerys for my inlaws, and the red shoes! 3.50! Then on the way back, as I did not find anything in that shop, thought I would grab the two plates I'd seen every morning on my walk to work.

And then - the fatal mistake - "I'll juuuuust have a little look around......"

And the rest is history!

Will post some pics when I am not such a layabout! :giggle:

Woohoooooooo BL, you sound just like me!!! I fell twice last week- oops but worth it! Your buys sound divine and I am so coming up to your part of the world to hit the charity shops there, sounds so much nicer than my local ones. The one by my mom and dad is fab though!!! Still need to take pix of all the new bits to show ya!!!

ooh I love red shoes! Your charity shops sound much better than the ones around me. Never seem to find anything designed for anyone below the age of 80.

If I drive 20 mins it takes me to the village where a lot of footballers live and there are the most expensive charity shops in the country. You can get designer everything but it's not exaclty cheap, even though it's a charity shop.

I did get a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes for £80 tho. And I given I know they cost over £400 new I was quite pleased with myself! Try to stay away from them otherwise the sense of 'bargains' gets far too expensive.

You're a great shopper BL. Have you had to build an extension on your house yet to store your clothes? Look forward to seeing the pics! xx

OMG ME TOO ...................!

My haul:
1 Betty Jackson suede jacket -£40 ouch!
I had to go back for it
1 Pink broderie anglaise jacket £1
1 Red dress - new, never worn £1
1 black skinny rib jumper £2.50
1 Navy/white sailor top

I almost bought a pure silk off white trouser suit - Monsoon, brand new.price tag £80.It is for sale at £20. The trousers were not quite my style but it was tempting and the sales lady said it looked "stunning".
I told myself I can't have everything. I've bought 3 new coats and lovely hand bags recently too.
HELP.

Love the pics BL

The long jumpers and leggings really suit you. i love the red colour on you.
The suit looks good too and very business like yet feminine.
I forgot - I recently bought a Principles suit a bit similar.
Have you got space for all yours? I haven't!
