So the other week my Mum was being dragged around local charity shops with my Dad. My Dad always goes in to look at the books and Mum just tags along!! I used to be really funny about going in charity shops and I always thought it was a bit un-cool going in. Now my opinions have totally changed.
Im so glad that on this occasion Mum went in as she found me this little gem:
I'd only been saying to Mum recently that I was struggling to find a cute Mac that was stylish and affordable. Im glad I told her I was looking for one otherwise she probably wouldn't have looked twice at this.
Its originally from River Island. I love that shop and I had been in there regularly looking for a mac. Its my size and its got a gorgeous animal print on the inside of the coat, the same as whats inside a lot of their handbags.
Its also got cute little tie's at the cuffs which is a nice bit of detailing. And the best part is.... it only cost £5.99!!
Bargain!! Thanks Mum!!
I also have to say Thanks to my Dad who says if it wasn't for him going in in the first place, I would never have got it!!
I've now had the coat dry-cleaned and it looks as good as new!! I think im going to have to get rid of my 'inner snob' and go looking in charity shops more often.
As they would say in Sex and the City: One girls trash, is another girls treasure!!
Also a quick reminder that the deadline for my giveaway is tomorrow night at midnight. Thanks to everyone that has already entered so far, the winner will be chosen very soon!!
