Here is my outfit for the day wearing my new boot fair finds. I manged to wrangle these 2 dresses for only £1 each.
Here is my new dress with a thick lacy collar and pleated skirt. It is very comfy and I am looking forward to wearing this in coming cooler weather. I paired it up with flowery headband and Victorian inspired brooch.
Dress: Label cut out, Boot Fair £1
Leggings Primark £ 2
Shoes Iron Fist £35
Bag £10 Primark
I also picked up the purple burgundy version of the dress which was also just a pound.

I got a dress using the sales app Depop. It’s a bit like eBay, but much better as you don’t have to scour through all the Chinese sellers. It is especially for people selling their second hand clothes. I picked this dress up for only £7, the only flaws being that it has crease marks from being on a hanger, which I am sure will come out with a good iron. Apart from that it looks like new. I would definitely would recommend the app for anyone who wants to bag a bargain, and doesn’t mind second hand.
As the dress looked pretty much new I thought I would go ahead and give a review of this Disturbia dress.
Disturbia Pentagram/ Wednesday Addams Dress Review
I got this dress because I love the whole Wednesday Addams look. So when I saw this dress so cheap I jumped at the chance. I wasn’t keen on the pentagram as I try to stay away from any kind of symbolism/religious themes on my clothes, but I thought I am probably going to wear a cardigan with this anyway, so I didn’t mind.
- The collar is lovely, thick and crisp. It falls very nicely and well made.
- The fabric is stretchy and gives a flattering fit because of this it is true to size.
- The printed design is thick and doesn’t look like it will crack and crease.
- The original price of this dress.
- It is very, very short! But I am 5ft 8
- The zip on the collar is quite bulky. As it pulls up all the way to the neck, it can be a little uncomfortable as you are always aware of it rubbing slightly.
In conclusion I am very happy with this dress…for the price. I looked up the original price of this dress and it is £40! I really don’t think it is worth that price. For that price I would expect something extra to make this dress worth it. For example: My Banned Apparel Moonlight Silence Keyhole Dress was £30.
These dresses are very similar, the fabric and cut is the same, however this was £10 cheaper but I think the added details like the embroidery, unique artwork and the keyhole cut makes the dress more worth the price tag.
All in all though I am very happy. So watch out for a OOTD post using this dress soon!

So I did it, all 30 days! It was great fun as I got to have a real sort through my wardrobe and discover something that I had previously forgotten. I hope you enjoyed it and if you missed any or want to join in here is the list.
Its the last day, day 30 and my favourite high street store would have to be H&M. If any of you follow my blog you will know that I find a lot of nice pieces at quite good prices.

My favourite brand. Oooh, so hard to choose! I am going to have to pick 3, ReStyle, Banned Apparel and Killstar. I find myself always gazing at these clothes and adding them to wish lists. I wish there where more stores in my area that would stock these type of clothes, as I am not keen on buying online, I would much rather see it in person and being able to try it on.

Something I only wear in summer. This is a difficult question because my style doesn’t change much when it comes to summer. I usually just loose the jumpers and long socks. I usually hate summer clothing and much prefer winter styles. Luckily in the UK we have a couple of heat waves and the rest of the time I get away with cardigans.
This is quite a thin dress so it doesn’t get worn in the winter:
