Magpie Monday – two teal finds
Teal is my favourite colour to wear. It seems to bring out the colour of my eyes (which are grey-blue). So I was extremely pleased to find two lovely teal items in local charity shops recently. The first is a pretty silk blouse, which was £6.99 from Oxfam (was originally Kaliko) and looks as though it has never been worn. It is a perfect fit, so I’m looking forward to wearing it to my friend’s birthday party at the end of month. There are interesting tucks round the neckline forming a sort of rose shape, plus pretty covered buttons on the cuffs and the back.
My second find was a plastic-beaded necklace costing just £1.50 from the Sue Ryder Care ‘Retro’ shop last week. (I was also very tempted to buy a vintage vanity case to go with it, but didn’t think it would be possible to sneak this past H!)
This post will be added to this week’s Magpie Monday linky at Me and My Shadow. This is one of my favourite discoveries since I started blogging. I’ve checked out some of the other posts which have been added to the linky today and there are some seriously envy-inducing items!
