Blue but on budget

Now if you are one step up on me and have a few spare pennies but would prefer not to blow the budget then there are new items online on Pret a Portobello the thrifty and quirky girl's answer to internet shopping. This Tobi and Nabi Ink blue smock top/dress will keep your leggings working for a few more months and give the comfort of something new and versatile without breaking the bank at £49.00.
Added PS! Also blue is a great choice for today with the inauguration of the first black, African/American President of the Unites States. I wish I was there for such a momentous occasion, I wish I wasn't working so I could be a voyeur for hours upon hours via the TV, and listen to every interview, comment and speech given. I'm wearing some Democrat blue today to be part of it all in spirit.

  3. Nice pick - I can't get enough of smocks at the moment.

    I just finished watching/sobbing through two hours of inauguration TV. Exciting stuff. Obama's speech was spot on. Oh, and Michelle and the girls looked superb. xx

  5. La Belette - thank you and it shows how not everything has to come from the stores, designers etc. I love the enterprise of the market.

    Sharon-Rose - I know I'm tempted myself, but I'm being good :-(

    Aliana - isn't it! And Obama's daughter wore a coat today exactly the same colour it was fab!

  7. Oh I love that dress! I have a job interview tomorrow, if I get it I may treat myself to that! (when I should be paying off my credit cards.)
