Charity shop midi skirt

Price: £2
Availbility: Charity shop!

Me and my friend Naomi used to look through charity shops all the time, mostly for handbags and shoulder bags, but recently I've been reading a lot of DIY blogs, and I've become fascinated by the way people transform someone's old cast offs in to something stylish and up to date! It inspired me to go back to them, and see what I could find.

The first thing I noticed when I walked in was this skirt, it's a size 12, with an elasticated waist, and looked like it should probably be about floor length. I immediately though high waisted midi skirt! There's no doubt that these days midis and maxis are all the rage, and what was £2 if my idea didn't work out? Luckily, it's worked perfectly! It's a tiny bit baggy around my waist but I think that look works well held together with a nice waist belt.

I'm looking forward to picking up some more bits and peices, and hopefully to have a go at a bit of DIY customising! I hope this has inspired you to go and have a look for some bargains, I've never been more chuffed paying £2 for a skirt in my life!

  4. What charity shops do you go to here holly? My mum always used to go to them and would come home with loads of old topshop clothes for like £3 each or something! I'm always dead scared to go in and have a ratch about. xx
