A while ago I scored some high waisted black Lee jeans for $20
Probably one of the best things I ever bought, they're so flattering!
$20 was OK since they weren't new, but i deffinately prefer that to 200+ on a brand new pair

I also got my favourite casual shoes ever in a charity shop in England for 4 pounds (because they came without laces) I get compliments on them all the time!

Does anyone know of any good thrift stores in the Liverpool/Wirral area in England? Im looking for some pretty bargains that everyone else won't have. I just hope that I am half as lucky as the rest of you at finding some good things. Thanks

My best find in a while......a Vivienne Westwood dark brown wool scarf with the orb logo stitched on the end for £2! Then by some bizarre coincidence an hour later at a completely different place I found the correct dustbag for it 30p!

Two Hermes ties, first with foliage print with leaf veins woven into silk
Gucci tie, £2 each




Izzue unlined cotton jacket with reversed buttons and wired edging (which can be manipulated into any shape I like!)
£6.99



P.S. Paul Smith sleeveless cotton jumper with red line detailing (possible new favourite piece of clothing)
£1.95



Dolce & Gabbana (Not D&G!) unlined linen blazer.
Incredible fit but sleeves need shortening a tad.
£12.50



(all taken by me)

That has to be the cutest shopping story I've heard in a long time, nice finds!
I got my most face dress ever out of a charity shop, it cos me £3 and it's a gorgeous dark gold/black maxi with a split up the side, it fits perfect and nearly always wear it to work or special events
