Concidering that I couldn't even spell the colour till today, let alone never having never warn it, I went a little mauve crazy! I went to East London and attended the East End Thrift Store's sale of all their old stock, and despite grabbing almost everything in sight (I say almost for a reason, I'll explain later) I only came out with one item- a gorgeous mauve blazer that cost £3!

Now, let me explain the 'almost'... Silly me, thrift sale virgin, thought it would be a good idea to have a browse then go back to the stuff I liked. Really, I couldn't have been more stupid! As I went back to collect the camel blazer I eyed up, I saw a woman grab it and add it to her collection! I changed my approach, and started grabbing everything in sight!

After the madness, I went to Spitalfields and got a pleated midi skirt from the Urban Outfitters sale- £10 reduced from £40!!!
