I wore this outfit for a bbq this weekend. It's a really cute jumpsuit I got from a charity shop ages ago and haven't worn much but have fallen back in love with. Often clothes from charity shops can be a bit big so a tip from me is to roll the sleeves and legs up to a bit further then needed to make it look like it's meant to be like that! This jumpsuit was a bit baggy on the waist too but I just chucked a skinny belt round it and VOILA it works really well I think!
So as to make sure I don't look too 'Vintage'd up' I threw on some black and shiny gold accessories to toughen up the look and make it a bit more modern :)
When I shop in Charity shops I tend to go in with an open mind, think what you could do with what they have.. It might be a really cute dress but its just a little long, or baggy.. little changes like cutting and re-sewing hems and darts don't take long and it means you have spent very little money on an item that you won't see anyone else in! I also like to buy studs and spikes that I can stud into old denim or clothes I've bought in charity shops.. you can buy the studs on ebay for pretty cheap and once again you've got an original piece in no time at all! It's totally worth it, so next time you are in a Charity shop think about the changes you could make to make something to make it extra special!

I did some quick pastel coloured nail art the other day and thought I'd post it. This was so quick and easy and can be done with just a thin paint brush or even a toothpick!
