Out with the old. In with the older.

I've recently decorated my room and had a massive clear out of all those clothes which I know I would never dare to wear again a.k.a awful Primark purchases beyond the point of looking fashionable anymore! Sooo I've thrown out some awful throwaway fashions which I wish I'd never bothered with and replaced them with some older items from a recent Manchester shopping trip and an ebay spree. My mum keeps going mad at me but when Retro Rehab has a £5 sale rail it's hard to pull myself away!

This Summer number is from Ebay and cost around £5. It's a really vibrant dress and I can't wait to wear it. It also came with...


Above was another Ebay bargain for around £4. Perfect for my many Summer festivals.

I'm not usually an orange person but I love the shape of this dress and the wrap round frill at the bottom of the dress. I'm still not sure if I will be taking it up or leaving it as it is. This was from Retro Rehab in Manchester for £5.

The last one is my favourite and it also from Retro Rehab costing me £5. I'm also unsure whether to hem this one up. I quite like the longer lengths on these two so I might just leave them and opt for a more lady like dress length!

Oh and if you're ever in or around Manchester make sure you visit Retro Rehab as when they have a sale rail it's worth having a look and every so often they have a sale day where you can get a bag and fill it for £10. How good is that?!
