This jacket was a complete utter bargain, I bought it from a carboot sale for £1!! Can you believe that, only 100 shiny pennies! There is no sign of wear; this jacket must have been worn only a handful of times if at all! When I hand-washed it when I got home from buying it (as I do with any second hand clothing) there was a release of dye suggesting that it was infact like new!
I only discovered last weekend there is a weekly carboot a 20/30 minute bus drive away from me, aswell as picking up this jacket I also snagged 2 dresses, a glittery black clutch and a vintage porcelain butterfly print bangle - all for £1 each!
The dress was a bargain sale buy from a few months ago. It's from Love Label and I got it in the sale for £21 however it's original price was around 50-60 and the day after I ordered it the price when up to £40.
I love the beading/embroidery detail and it has a slightly scooped back, however I just wish the waistband was a little lower down as it would make the dress more flattering.
I also wore my new chelsea boots from Matalan, they were on offer for reward card holders making them £10 instead of £16, and as I had a £10 gift voucher from a while back they were completely free.
One thing I would say about these shoes is they are slightly narrow so may not be the best for those with wide feet. I found them to pinch my toes a little but it eased up throughout the day as I "broke" them in.
I decided to wear my cat heart necklace my Mum bought me for Christmas 5 years ago. Sadly on Tuesday I had to unfortunately say goodbye to my 16 year old cat. I was only 6 when we got her so she's been around pretty much as long as I could remember. It was very heartbreaking having to have her but to sleep, however it was the kindest thing to do as she suddenly took ill after a blood clot caused her to be paralysed from the waist down leaving her in an awful lot of pain.
We rushed her to the vets immediately so gladly her suffering was short. She was a very loved cat and will be missed by the whole family and the rest of my cats. It's still very upsetting to think that she is gone and will take a lot to get used to her not being around.

Sorry to end on a sad note, I'm sure those of you will pets will understand how heartbreaking it is to lose an animal, especially when they've been such a big part of your family for a long time.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
