Second Hand Stylings - Day Nine

Thursday, 19 August 2010


Today's second hand item is a rather snazzy polka dot silk scarf, originally from Topshop but mine for the bargainous price of 50p at my local car boot sale. My scarf collection has increased massively recently as I've discovered I have a huge weakness for them. I do have to be careful though - as someone with quite a short neck, I can't really go in for the usual way of wearing them. But luckily there are lots of different ways to work them into an outfit. This one started off as a headband with the ends trailing down as a feature at the front, but I decided it looked better as a belt.

I suppose the shoes can also be classed as second hand as I seem to have secured them on permanent loan now. Oddly enough they're a size 5 but fit both my mum (size 4) and me (size 6).

  1. Great scarf, what a bargain!!
    Loving the shoes too, I'm a sucker for anything with a bow.

  2. I actually love those shoes. I can never find shoes with a plain bow on, there's always some random piece of weird tat on them.

    I'm enjoying your thrifty finds. I'm tempted to have a look around myself, but I can never find anything. Blah! I guess you just have to know where to look...:)

  6. Those shoes are as cute as can be. When Im looking for shoes if the price is right you would be suprised at the range of sizes I can stuff my giant feet into.

  9. I used to own a ton of scarfs, but got rid of quite a few of them!
    I am always on the lookout for something unusual though. Polka dots are always a win, I used to own a green and white one, in fact I think it's still lurking in my closet.

    50p for a genuine Topshop scarf is impressive
