This is what I wore to the Clothing at Tesco cocktail party on Thursday evening, something a little bit different from my usual style. The H&M gilet and St Michael velvet top are my most recent charity shop finds, I adore them both so much! I wouldn't usually spend £8 on a secondhand piece, but the gilet was brand new with tags on (the RRP was £29.99) and I did manage to blag it down from £10 after I had a little conversation about the Victoria and Albert Museum with the lady. It's actually a size twelve, but I think it fits me rather perfectly and it means I'll be able to layer it with my favourite jumpers when it gets colder! This is also the first time I've worn velvet since I was a little girl, I really do dislike the texture, but it was just too lovely not to buy, I didn't even realize it was St Michael until I got home! Have you bought anything from your local charity shops recently? And what do you think of this more 'edgy' and 'grown up' style on me? Love, Jazzabelle. P.S. Have you entered my giveaway to win this beautiful F&F Limited Edition dress below? Be quick, it ends on Wednesday!
