Charity shop finds - what do you think?

I've been feeling slightly better the last few days, I hope I can continue to improve - being ill is NOT something I'd advise to anyone!

I went looking through the charity shops yesterday and found these sweet-looking jackets. I know I wouldn't be able to wear them until winter and that I'd be wearing something else completely different underneath them - what's your opinion? Keep and love them, or sell them?

Picture too large for layout - click here!

#1 - Laura Ashley black velvet blazer, £5. Someone cut the inside tag out but I can tell from the care instructions label that it's from Laura Ashley.

#2 - Karen Millen jacket, bought for just over £6. Crazy print, no? It reminded me of a pimp jacket when I tried it on. I decided that if I didn't get it, I'd regret it and so went ahead and got it.

What would they look best styled up with? The most ridiculous, crazy suggestions are welcome. I can't wait to wear the second one, haha.


  1. I love love love that velvet jacket. I have a similar one with a satin tie around the waist. A must-have wardrobe staple, no? Goes with everything, dress it up or down- perfect!
    I love your blog by the way, you have amazing style.

  2. Thank you, that's wonderful to hear! I may get a very chunky long piece of ribbon or a belt in a similar material to wrap around the waist of it. It is from Laura Ashley so I was worried about it being too 'mature' for me to wear, haha.
