"Today im wearing" and a few charity shop bargains!

Today's "today im wearing" was an outfit i put together for a small vintage/charity shopping trip. And although i don't exactly dress practical and for comfort i still like to be a little bit comfortable for shopping. And a knitted suite is perfect for shopping i personally think. Although some people may think black leggings are a better choice. You can never go wrong with a good vintage suite and a pair of comfortable heels for scavenging the charity shop for bargains.

However the shopping trip wasn't the most successful because i found some amazing original 1950s blue platforms for only £3 but sadly they were only a size 3! which is the annoying think about vintage shoes. I'm sure nobody had size 5/6 feet back in those days and its very depressing when amazing shoes don't fit. But i still managed to pick up a few bargains. And managed to get a Jacqmar dress and then found the matching scarf. And finally got a frilly vintage duvet cover and bed sheet which i have been searching for for a while so it wasnt all bad! So lets get on with the post my outfit and the buys!.
