OOTD: Under £20

Bralet: DIY (£3.57)
Skirt: Primark sale (£3)
Necklace: Jewellery Outlet (£3)
Jacket: Charity Shop (£4)

Without even realising, I managed to pull together an outfit that came to a grand total of £13.57 (minus shoes, as they don't fit in the frame). The bralet was made from a Topshop dress I bought on ebay well over a year ago, it was 2 sizes to big so I got some kitchen scissors on it (I felt like I was committing a crime, cutting up a topshop dress!), hemmed the seams and added a new zipper and voila! The dress sat at a funny angle anyway and I've had so much wear out of it this way!
The other pieces are pretty self explanatory. I think I might make more "under £20" posts as they could be really fun to put together and they really reflect my thrifty/DIY style :)
It was nice and sunny this morning so hopefully anyone who doesn't have to suffer the horrible British weather can relate to this outfit! 

I feel a bit like a corpse today, I've been a bit unwell (hence the eyebags!) I can't wait to be off to Italy in under a week, better start planning my posts! 


  1. Love this outfit, hope you feel better soon x

  2. I love spiked necklaces like this one, they are so good to put on with just a t-shirt to change the outfit. Have fun in Italy, I can't wait until I go off to Tanzania.
