Fashion Monday #2

Hi there,

this is week 2 and i am happy to say that my friends at work have given my blog a warm welcome! So this week we have more people than before wanting to share their treasures with me. The idea of this blog is not to show "cheap" clothes but treasures purchased, found or made that don't break the bank! 

So week 2 here it goes! 
This is Kora's lovely necklace found in her fave charity shop.  
 Pieces like this make an outfit interesting! Make sure you don't get colours clashing too much! Kora has done a brilliant job there with  her black cardi and blue top. 
Zoe- chocolate delight!
 Zoe has nicely combined all different shades of brown keeping it all coordinated with the black skirt and tights!
Kora's "Christmas" Pants from River Island!

Me with my black dress and new cardi courtesy of TK Maxx 
 The dress i am wearing here is the same dress i was wearing when i was 9 months pregnant and ready to pop. Stretchy dresses are a brilliant investment. So if you are pregnant go for stretchy fabrics that you can wear after you give birth! The cardi is my recent treasure! There was a very similar one i found last year at Free People but i just couldn't afford it! This year TK Maxx brought it for half the price!

Here's the posh version!

Aimee's Vivienne-Westwood-esque George skirt! What a gem! 

This is it for this week! See you again soon!

Fashion Monday #1

A few weeks ago whilst discussing with friends we decided to start posts for fashion choices for people that don't earn much! A cause, as noble as Zoolander's school for kids that don't read good! :-)
My rationale is that it is easy to have fab fashion sense if you are loaded, the challenge is in being presentable when skint.
So from now there will be a post every Monday dedicated on fashion. Here it goes.
 Here is lovely Kora with a lovely orange top! It is a brilliant find from a charity shop she loves. The colour of the top is a perfect match to her hair! A beautiful autumnal look!
Here is poor me not knowing when the click would happen! Right, i am wearing a new aubergine dress from H&M. I find these dresses really comfy and versatile because they just take your shape as you get bigger or smaller. I needed a dress that will "shrink" with me as i keep on loosing baby weight. I am wearing my favourite black cardi i bought last year in Greece and a silk scarf mum gave me a million years ago. It was hers but she gave it to me anyway as i loved that colour!

So here it goes! Tell us what you think!! What do you wear at work? Did you find it hard after having babies to fit into your old wardrobe?
