Had such a lovely day off today. Spent most of it with my little nephew, but also decided on an impromptu charity shop visit and a chip shop lunch (naughty). Charity shopping hasn’t been very successful for me lately, but I found some gems today! If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram (both @c_sittingpretty)  you will have seen me post everything a little earlier. There wasn’t really enough to warrant doing a haul post. Just a couple of tops, a skirt and a really nice beanbag to save for when we get a house. I spent less than £10 altogether so was really chuffed, then stuffed myself silly with good old chips and gravy which I still haven’t recovered from! Serves me right. Anyway, this is what I wore today. The shirt was given me by a friend at work who got it from a swishing party. I love it so much!

Blouse – Vintage St Michael

Jeans – Topshop via eBay

Shoes – Urban Outfitters

Necklace – Primark

Nails – Peach Melba by Barry M

Lips – Ravishing by MAC

I’m starting to make a list up of things I’d like to blog about in the coming weeks, such as nail polish collection, lipstick collection, more ‘Sitting Pretty Styles’ posts and a guide to buying and selling on eBay. If there’s anything else you’d like to see other than these and the usual outfits and wishlists, please do let me know in the comments! 

Also if you have bought anything from my shop, please give me any feedback you have as I am compiling a customer feedback page. Oh, and don’t forget you can win some pieces from the shop in the giveaway in the previous post!

    Such an amazing shirt! The button detailing is gorgeous (: I wish I had any self control or discipline when it came to saving, my moneyz situation is ridiculous atm! xx

    This is the sort of shirt that most people would dismiss if they saw it on a hanger in a charity shop (I only say that as you said it was vintage), however you make it look modern and it looks so good on you! Great outfit!

      Afraid not! 🙁 I got it at the beginning of December but there's loads of similar things on the high street at the mo 🙂 x

    I love the blouse and necklace together. I remember when they still sold St Michael ; )
