My boot sale Yves Saint Laurent belt

Can you believe it's mid-August already? To be honest it feels as though summer hasn't even begun. This month me and Mike have been on a major budget, a ton of bills all at once and pretty much everything we own breaking at the same time is never fun. Lucky for me I shop at boot sales eh?
I was going to save the best till last but I can't help myself. I found this YSL belt which I assume is vintage at one of those stalls that do house clearances. As I picked this beauty up I was scared that the woman was going to say some outrageous price, but when she said 50p I was overjoyed and bought it immediately. The shorts I've paired the belt with is also a boot sale purchase which I bought for £1.

This scarf by Celine Paris was £1 and from the same stall. I don't really know much about this designer but from what I've read I have found out that Celine without the accent above the 'e' is vintage. Not too sure when they started introducing the accent.

Next up is this Carvela bag which cost 50p.

As you all know I love sailor style clothing. My wardrobe consists of many sailor style dresses so here is another. This cost £1.50 and it is actually a top but it's quite long so can be worn as a mini dress/tunic.

And lastly, I purchased this St.Michael bag for £1.00 (not that I need anymore bags). I have another different bag with the same pattern as this so I'm adding this one to the collection. It's big and spacious so I can chuck everything in this one when I'm in a rush.

  2. the belt is amazing! as is the sailor top!

  4. I miss the days when thrifting was actually thrifting. These days, everything is incredibly inflated and the thrill of the steal isn't quite there anymore. But on the other hand, you've seemed to have some luck! So there must be hope.

  5. Wow such incredible items! I would love to do a swap with you, I had never thought of that before but it is such a marvelous idea! Feel free to email me when you would like to organize something :)
