So I call your name, the only thing I know.

Vintage silk shirt: £1.99, via charity shop. Vintage leather midi pencil skirt: £3, via charity shop (similar). The Kooples leather jacket: not less than a fiver. Bally chelsea boots: £8, via charity shop. Patent bag: 20p, via charity shop.

Think of this post as an ode to the charity shop. It's been a while since I wore top to toe second hand, but a few weeks ago I found this leather pencil skirt for less than a Pret salad and it reminded me why I always end up heading back to those friendly little stores. As a student, my blog used to document my usual charity shop outfits, but when I moved to Munich things started to get more high street again. A quick browse of the rails of my local charity shop on the way to buy a pint of milk (a girl needs tea, okay) proved to me, yet again, that sometimes you need a little more than asos premier to find something a little special. Admittedly, I need to alter this pencil skirt a little, but where else would you find a real leather pencil skirt for such a tiny price tag?

I decided to debut this little number on a day trip to Ipswich, a town I hadn't visited for a good five years. It's an odd place, but I do appreciate its charm, even down to the statue of Cardinal Wolsey. Just a little bit outside of the town centre is this charming road of old buildings, so we found this suitably warm-toned bookshop to browse before dinner and snap a few photos of my new-to-me outfit. Now, to think of more places nearby to explore...

  4. Oh, I love the skirt and I have to admit, I miss the good old days of charity shopping - in my town it's almost impossible to get a bargain in them now.
