Bootsale haul & outfit

YAY! I was finally able to get out of bed for the car boot sale this morning. I am usually way too hungover on Sundays, but I made sure I didn't go out on Saturday night so that I could snap up lots of bargains. And snapping up lots of bargains is exactly what I did! Look at this lot!!
Vintage leather loafers - £3
St Tropez fake tans - 20p each
Hairsprays - 20p for all three
Benefit Bluffdust, Get Even powder and It Stick - £1 each
Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner - £2
Elizabeth Arden lipstick - 50p, Urban Decay eyeshadow palette - £1.50 (looks a bit grubby but after a little clean up it'll be good as new!)
Giant peace necklace - £1, gold chain - 50p
The following bits I got in a huge bundle for £20 - each item was £2 and since I got some really good quality bits, I didn't want to haggle as I thought it was a really fair price for what I got! My mum went halves with me too so I only paid a tenner for this lot!
ASOS neon beaded cardi - £2
Topshop aztec print dress - £2
Primark waterfall jacket - £2 (I know it's only Primark but thought it was really cute!)
River Island floral dress - £2
Topshop floral jumpsuit - £2 
Topshop tribal beaded jumper - £2
Lace dress - £2
Topshop silk jumpsuit - £2
Vero Moda glittery dress - £2
Now I realise these aren't to most people's taste... but I LOVE THEM!! I am obsessing over Hawaiian print shirts at the moment so can't wait to get creative on these and cut them into cute sleeveless tie front shirts!
Hawaiian print shirts - £1 each
Vintage sheer floral shirt - £1
Vintage lace crop top - £1
I've wanted a camouflage jacket for ages now, but wanted to wait until I found one for a good price. I definitely was never planning on spending £50 on one from Urban Outfitters or Topshop when I knew i'd come across one sooner or later! Snapped up this baby for just £3! It's a little big but nothing my sewing machine can't fix :)
Camouflage jacket - £3 

VINTAGE NEON VERSACE SKIRT! Love this! £1 - what a barg!
Vintage denim shorts - 50p each
And here's what I wore... excuse my gross face and hair, I was up way too early to care what I looked like! 
666 TOP: c/o Thriftette
FLORAL SHORTS: Bootsale, 20p
SHOES: Underground via Office, £85 (gift)
BAG: Zara, £39.99
BAG TASSLE: H&M, £1 (sale)

Blogger is NOT in my good books at the moment! Putting together a post with loads of pictures is proving to be extremely time consuming and VERY annoying!!

Now that the weather is good, hopefully it's here to stay, I should be bootsalin' every week so will be updating weekly with my bargains! As you can probably tell I got a bit sunburnt today after walking round a field for a few hours, which is why i'm so red! Hope you've all had a fab weekend :)

  7. I cannot believe you got all of those things from a boot sale! I often browse my local boot sales and I don't know if it's because I live in Dorset but I'm lucky if I pick up one good item!

  25. I actually quite like it when you don't 'do-yourself-up' so much, I think you look a bit beautiful and natural. A bit grunge! I like! The love the skirt/shorts you have on. Where do you go to these boots sales at? Or is it just any random boots sales?

  43. Hey Lucy, looks like you had a good day at the car boot, you got some lovely things.I get loads of stuff almost every time i go to my carboot, i go nearly every week though im addicted! Its the thrill of what i am going to find this time, there should be a carboot sale addict rehab or talk group that i could go too haha.At the carboot that i go there is always lots of cheap vintage, has there isnt that much interest/want for it in my area, which is good because more for me :) its so exciting every week has i find new vintage treasures.I started a blog about my finds but i buy that much stuff every week and in such a big amount i found it hard to keep up with blogging it.You seem to go charity shop shopping and car booting a lot and buy a lot like me, do you ever find yourself running out of space, having too much stuff? how do you manage, do you have regular clearouts? I have been going carboots that long that i filled the house nearly to the roof and i find it hard to part with stuff.I love your blog, i like to see your bargains and how you style them, you have a great style.I really like the flowery shorts and for 20p what a bargain! they are perfect for summer.I like the other vintage shorts you got too they will go with lots of things.
