Thrifted Gems

Ringer Tee - Blue Jays Merch
Skirt - Charity Shop
Creepers - Underground via TK Maxx
Sunglasses - Topshop 

One of my obsessions at the moment is a-line skirts - I just think that they look so effortless and stylish with basically any top. This one is originally from Hobbs, and I think I snapped it up for about £4 or £5. Bargs. I can't say that I've ever shopped in Hobbs before (bit too posh for me) but for a size 10, this skirt is absolutely massive! Do their sizes come up really big? Since taking these photos, I put it in the washing machine without realising it's label says 'professionally dry clean only', and it did shrink a lot. Even on 30 degrees, I didn't even know that was possible. Not that I'm complaining 'cos it kinda fits now.

  29. I absolutely love that skirt - it looks perfect with your outfit! That's so awesome that you got it at a charity shop. Thrifting (as we call it in the US haha) is so much fun because you can find such great deals! And your tattoos are so cool!

  47. My Husband Cheated On Me, But Here's How i Saved Our Marriage ,My name is Sandra Gault and I live in Bryan Texas, My husband and i got married for more than 11 years and have gotten two kids. thing were going well with us and we are always happy. until one day my husband started to behave in a way i could not understand, i was very confused by the way he treat me and the kids. later that month he did not come home again and he called me that he want a divorce, i asked him what have i done wrong to deserve this from him, all he was saying is that he want a divorce that he hate me and do not want to see me again in his life, i was mad and also frustrated do not know what to do,i was sick for more than 2 weeks because of the divorce. i love him so much he was everything to me without him my life is incomplete. i told my sister and she told me to contact a spell caster, i never believe in all this spell casting of a thing. i just want to try if something will come out of it. i contacted Chief Nwaluta for the return of my husband to me, they told me that my husband have been taken by another woman, that she cast a spell on him that is why he hate me and also want us to divorce. then they told me that they have to cast a spell on him that will make him return to me and the kids, they casted the spell and after 1 week my husband called me and he told me that i should forgive him, he started to apologize on phone and said that he still love me that he did not know what happen to him that he left me. it was the spell that he Chief Nwaluta casted on him that make him come back to me today,me and my family are now happy again today. thank you Chief Nwaluta for what you have done for me i would have been nothing today if not for your great spell. i want you my friends who are passing through all this kind of love problem of getting back their husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend to contact Chief Nwaluta,if you need his help you can contact him through his private E-mail:{ Nwalutaspelltemple@gmail.com } or you can contact him through his Web site :http://nwalutaspelltemple.blogspot.com. Thanks you Chief Nwaluta.
