5 things for under £5

 Hello! I am hugely procrastinating at the moment. It's about 8 minutes in to the day (Tuesday), I have work tomorrow, well today now (it's not the next day until I've slept- I do abide by this rule) and a few minutes ago I was rummaging through the mountain of clothes that has formed on my bed, as you do, yawning, having a cheeky stretch before bed, and what else do I see before I'm about to tidy this mound up but a cream coloured spider popping his head out of my scrawled up trousers to say hi. Instead of try and evacuate mr. spidey out of the room or to shake out the trousers, think I'm just going to cotch at my computer and write a blog post in hope that in the time it takes me to write this he'll kindly surrender and leave my trouser leg and go and chill in his web with his homies. Fingers crossed.

Now, getting round to the point of this post! I have snapped up some seriously good bargains of late and I thought I could share some of them with you. The best part about it all? No item listed here cost me any more than a fiver. Yup you heard that right it's all under five of your British pounds.

 First are these lovely leather wooden wedge heel platforms by Dune. I remember seeing these on ASOS for £90 link here! a while back. However, I picked up these beauties (in my size too!) for £3.50 in a charity shop. Literally can't wait for the first excuse to wear them out.
Next is this vintage chiffon cream blouse with floral embroidered collar. Not everyone's cup of tea I'm definitely aware, but it happens to be right up my street. Can't wait to bust it out with high waist shorts to take its sort of 'Granny' esque edge off it. Picked this up at a car boot sale a few weeks ago for a pound!

Converse. Yes, I stumbled across some of these bad boys for just £2 at the same sale as above. Literally couldn't believe it when the lady said the price. Pretty pleased, they're a wince too big but never mind, I will still be wearing!

The only really high street thing on this list! You must visit Dorothy Perkins this week if you do one thing! Their jewellery range is beautiful and it's buy one get one free at the moment. I got this lovely purple wrap bracelet with stone and turquoise feather bracelet and earrings set all for 2 squid!

And finally these floral shorts from a Charity shop. I know summer is drawing to a bit of a close now (boo!) but I can see myself wearing tights beneath these bad boys in A/W. Check me out with my fashion abbreviation lingo. Only £2. Belt not included!

What have your best buys been recently?

oh and spell check informed me that 'nextly' isn't a word.
