What $38.00 can buy you :
















In case you couldn’t tell, I went opshopping today! I had some company for a change; yes normally I am that sad guy shopping alone. Not that it bothers me; I am perfectly fine with myself for company, personally I have never understood girls who can’t do anything alone?  Today my lovely friend Paula came with me as she often does. In the end we had three bags each. I even had to go and purchase some new coat hangers – I have too many clothes, it’s starting to get out of hand…

As you can probably tell from the title, everything in this post plus coast hangers came to a grand total of $38.00. I was pretty pleased with my efforts. Plus in a way it’s kind of like I donated that much to charity today. Warm fuzzies. I will go in to more detail on what I bought when the items pop up in outfits posts otherwise this would be suuuuuper long.

Also, I do realise that a few of the skirts are a tad ugly. I plan on cutting them up to make new skirts, I have a few DIY projects to complete.

  2. You find the most adorable clothes and items EVER!!! I love your photography, how do you get the colours in the photos, as they appear to have tinges of brown in them? Don't cut the skirts with the buttons on them, they are lovely as they are.

  6. $38.00 can certainly go along way ! That could be spent on just a bag or something if you think about it.
    I really love the necklaces and the last top. The books are ace too !

  7. great finds, can't believe you got all of it for $38! and i personally prefer shopping alone as i can spend as much time as i want looking in shops without anyone moaning at me - maybe im just a loner lmao xx

  22. Ooh you certainly got your 38 moneys worth there! Lovely lovely lovely finds and fashion and literature always go so well together!And I completely agree...girls who can't do things alone are just weird. Personally I prefer to shop on my own...I can then be completely disaffected by everyone in what I buy and I won't annoy any of my friends with my lack of being able to make decisions!
