Mega treat! Swallow sandals from Miss L Fire
They were expensive (£55 = eek!) but I LOVE them. Come on summer!
Melissa Fade flock peep toe pumps - In the sale for £9.99. They should RRP at £60 so I got a bargain here, and they smell of strawberry bubblegum too :)
And I know that every Tom, Dick and Harry will have one of these, but I don't care because I love it!
Remember the Prada SS12 collections that I blogged about a few months ago? Well Primark have gone and
ripped it off done a version, a mere snip at £12. The Prada one is £815!!
And a close up of the print. It is so similar to the original I really dont know how they have got away with it!! I got a matching twinset style cardi for £6 as well - bargainous summer outfit!
And from the charity shops....
Two vintage patterns. 80's one on left 10p. Looks a bit cheesy on the package in those 80s yuk fabric combos, but I like the style of the cap sleeved top and will look nice in my choice of fabric.
70's one on right, 50p. The style is very 50s I think, and think this will be my next sewing class project, along with the 50s pencil skirt.
I went to my fave Manchester fabric place on Saturday, where they have big offcut bins that you have a rummage through and buy by weight. I got this fab Hawaiian (about 2.5 metres) for £2.30. What a steal!!
And a close up of the print, nice and detailed. This is what the full skirt (its not a full circle) is going to be made from...watch this space!
I also picked up this stunning 50's glass in the charity shop for 50p. Its my new favourite! Surprise surprise, there was only one, so it can join the rest of the glass orphanage!
And look what I acquired! A lady at sewing class was having a clear out and brought in a big bag of fabric for the class to pick from. I chose this lovely bright turquoise gingham, and this original 60s daisy fabric. there is over 2 metres of it...not sure what to do with it yet but its really bright and cheerful! :)
