Animal Ora

After a collection of bargain buys have been found and the wardrobe is over flowing with wonderful items, outfits can be thrown together and fashion can be made up! Although I wouldn't say that I am particular wacky or out standing with my fashion, I like to be simple yet effective. However, I do like to play with patterns and find new shapes for my body. Here I am wearing some clothes given to me by friends. Also another great way to get yourself some bargains, instead of going shopping and spending lots of money, why not call your girlies and arrange for a night in with a bottle, or two, some pizza and have a night of swapping clothes you no longer wear.
This skirt is great, it's a lovely burgundy colour which will look great with just a t-shirt and plimpsoles for a more casual look, however I have gone for the evening look and matched the skirt with a lovely leopard print leotard. I just need to find a little black or gold bolero to wear with this outfit to complete the look.
The shoes are originally from Kurt Gieger, of course I did not buy them direct from the store, but the sticker was still on the bottom. I bought these gorgeous 1920's style shoes from a second hand shop in Folkestone. (would you believe it). The original price was £78, however, I purchased them for £10. Such a good find. These are great to wear on nights out, to a restaurant, or for work, as you can dress them up and down. They look great with a pair of black, skinny leg trousers and a white silk blouse for work.
The necklace adds a touch of sparkle, this I bought unfortunately not so cheaply, on my travels in Venice. However, the sparkle makes up for the price, plus it adds that finishing touch to any simple outfit and the bracelet adds a little bit of another colour, this I made myself. I bought the swarovski crystals' from a shop on ebay and got the elastic from a craft shop. Easy peesy. Another bargain for another day.
