Aren't Presents Loverly?!

I think i can confirm that the correct answer is yes, yes they are.
A few things i received from friends and family, aswell as some sneaky little purchases of my own.

Fabulous Vintage Booties from Wendy-May for my 17th. I now live in them.

Apologies for the shitty lighting, this is a black lace dress I received as a gift from our dearest pal Sister A, I was there when she bought it so i feel its ok to reveal the splendid price of it. £3! Oh yeah, you heard correct. £3. From a nearby villages charity shop - excellent find that charity shop is.

Another present from Sister A, from a Vintage shop in Manchester. Also £3. Lots of things in my life seem to be £3 at the moment. It's awesome!

Now my birthday outfit, which a few of you said lovely things about, thanks very much by the way! We worked out the price of the whole outfit to be £7.50, all items included! Fabulous! The top was a gift from Wendy-May from the same vintage shop in Manchester. The belt belongs to Sister A and it cost 50p from a charity shop. The skirt was a present from my actual sister and cost £1! Its a gorgeous pink colour, i love it. Then the shoes were £3.

Again terrible lighting! How annoying! This dress is Carrie style with the whole poofy colour dress on top and then black pencil style underlayer, you know the one I mean surely! Anyway again £3 from the nearby charity shop, a gift from myself!
Long denim skirt with buttons down front was £3 from the Vintage shop in Manchester and the lacey top thing was £2 from the nearby village charity shop.
Cream coloured highwaist skirt was a gift and came from the Manchester shop again. The leggings i've had quite a few weeks now were from H&M kids sale for £3. Maison Martin Margiela A/W '08 anyone? There's a picture below of what i mean.
Last but by no means least, i'm not sure if i've shown you this before, but it's the skirt i bought in London all that time i go. it's referred to as the belly dancer skirt. Yeah.

What a long post! Crikey! Oh well, i always get carried away with everything at birthdays. Susan's 18th next, i'm already excited for it. It's 2 months away.

Thanks for all the birthday well wishing, I had a fantastic few days of celebrations with Suse and Wend.

I just listened to House of Pain - Jump Around and then The Beatles - Day Tripper. Bit different. Very enjoyable though! Oh! Everyone must listen to Kings of Leon - Sex on Fire now. It's freekin genius.

Ah I also love the birthday outfit, and hapy belated birthday wishes to you!
Was the vintage shop the "everything under £3" shop? Some of my most favourite things are from there... it's one of the reasons it's my firm choice for uni.
I really shouldn't have admitted that.

Wendy said...
