Secondhand Sunday #7

Oops, I'm a little late on this one aren't I? Apologies for that, I got a tad side tracked! So, here we have it, a Sunday feature on a Monday. Will the world stop turning? Nope. Do I need to worry about this? Nope. Ok, glad we've settled that then! Soooo, I went to a carbooty sale yesterday as my mum told me at the last minute there was one going on this weekend, despite the fact I thought they were all finished for the year but apparently people still have lots of their junk to sell (more great vintage fashion bargains in my case) so I was keen to get another Secondhand Sunday post before the season is over. I found some fantastic fashion pieces today and spent a total of just 10 euros on all of this :


1 euro for this stripey beanie. I will  be wearing it a lot during winter as in France, winters are COLD, and I mean cold...like, minus degree temperatures. This will keep my ears cosy while still looking stylish at the same time...and looking slightly like a robber/'where's wally' too. It's similar to some of the beanies they've been selling in River Island like these.


This polka dot short cost me 1 euro. Amazing or what?! It's actually black despite it looking navy in the photos. It can be tied up at the bottom, buttoned up to the top, left open, worn with a skirt, jumper, leather jacket, jeans, anything...the amount of outfits I will get out of this one item is endless and it cost me next to nothing! Here are a few ways in which I'd style it too.


If you've read my other posts, you'll know I have quite an obsession with jewellery, or anything sparkly. I got these beauties for 2 euros. The diamante detailing around the pearl (not real ofcourse) looks just amazing with my hair up in a bun.


I finally have some tartan in my life! I've been lusting after it for ages and when I saw this skirt for only 3 euros, I snapped it up straight away. It's great quality wool with a small split up the back, it's just perfect. I think I might get it taken up as it is rather long then i'll be wearing it with my leather jacket and red belt as shown in the photo.


I wasn't sure about buying this at first but for 1 euro, you can't say no. I think it'll look great in the warmer summer months (seems so far away *sigh*) with some high waisted shorts along with some red lippy or over a bikini at the beach. This is really 80's and yes a bit out there but worn with the right thing it'll look great.


This bright red lace jacket was 2 euros. It looks great with some black skinny jeans and this necklace which I bought previously at another carboot.

Hope you enjoyed this post! It's probably my last carbooty post til next year *sad face*...but means I can take a break from the buying...for a few months...or a few days, nah maybe just a few minutes...

Part 3 | Dungarees, Three Ways To Wear

Chain: Carboot | Bag: Carboot | Converse: Ebay | T-shirt: Primark | Fedora: Missguided

So, the last look to the three outfit series including my Missguided dungarees. All the looks I chose are pretty casual, but I think dungarees look better worn that way, or if you're feeling a bit adventurouuuus, you can always wear heels too as seen on the likes of Rihanna which give it a bit of an edge. My mum came back from a trip to England with a few things from Primark (living in rural France, it becomes a bit of a treat) and brought back this 'Bonjour Monsieur' moustache tee, which I love...and it's quite funny wearing it when you actually live in France! She got it for only £5 and there were other designs too such as The Beatles. A simple, fun look.

What did you think of this three ways to wear series?

Part 2 | Dungarees, Three Ways To Wear

Crop top: Missguided.co.uk | Necklace: River Island | Fedora: Missguided | Vans: Cloggs.com | Shirt: Carboot sale

So, continuing on from Sunday's post, here's my second look including my MissGuided dungarees. I'm wearing the same fedora, (again, I know), and it will be in the next outfit too... just warning you. I just really love it and it seems to look good with everything! The shirt I bought for 2 euros at my most recent carboot, where I was selling my own stuff so only had a brief moment to look round myself, so I picked up this. It's very 'Rihanna' if you know what I mean, to tie the shirt round my waist, but what the heck, I like it & it's really comfy! I'm going to wear this as long as the weather allows...then I'll definitely have to resort to jumpers.

Part 1 | Dungarees, Three Ways To Wear

Here is Part 1 to another series of  'Three Ways To Wear', including my dungarees, which I have been wearing non stop lately. If you like the look of them, hop on over to Missguided.co.uk & buy them here

Tshirt: H&M | Brogues: H&M | Hat: Missguided.co.uk | Bag: Carboot sale

I put this look together at random and I'm pretty happy how it all went so well together! My mum realised I looked like someone out of Dexy's Midnight Runners...after looking on google, I have to say, I actually do. This look is perfect to wear to school, out for the day, or to the library (lol I never go to the library). It's a very comfy, effortless, casual look and all you need to do is throw on a nice big chunky cardi when it gets a bit chillier and you're good to go. The trick is to try and not look like a farmer and a little more alexa chung-ish. I hope you enjoyed todays post and stay tuned for Part 2 sometime this week. A bientot!

PS. Check out this clip from 'The Perks Of Being A Wallflower' movie featuring 'Come on Eileen', it makes me smile every time.
