Channelling Sharon Rose

I've been in to charity shops probably 5 times in the last year. The first time was due to Sharon Rose-Style inspiring me into action and I scored big time with a Jean Patou coat. Then I decided to take the petit garcon for a rummage and he found a little Spiderman mobile phone. I popped in my charity shop of youth on a recent trip to my parents and I'm sure I've peeked and forgotten an occasion.

On Friday I needed some more dye and on my way to get some fish I popped into a local hospice charity shop. Channelling Sharon Rose, I was actually thinking pink, I found a lovely Gaultier Jeans maxi dress on the fourth rail. I tried it on and thought it would be great for next summer or beach holidays.








I knew it has never been worn and thought it must have been a manufacturing or sale shop supplier donation. All the while I cycled home I kept thinking I've seen this before. And sure enough I'd only gone and thrifted the exact same item as Queen of thrit Sharon Rose. Is there such a thing as blogging osmosis?

Well you can tell I'm only a lady in waiting as my dress cost £7.50 compared to the queen's £1 purchase!

  1. LOL-SEE!!!I hope you are going to thrift more often now!!! Thats amazing how you found the exact same one, funnily enough, when mum in law found mine, it also had a french sticker price tag on it in french francs-we are JPG twins now!! Its a great style, because of the stretch it can be worn maxi or shorter and I found it very comfy too! From your email, I knew it had to be a thrift find, you've got the eye, so I expect more visits now, haha!!

  2. The best find I got was a Biba shirt. There must be a better class of charity stores in the South!

  5. Hi again-regarding labelling your posts, when you do a post (editing an old one or new) there is an option next to 'post options' of 'labels for this post'-you can then label your posts accordingly. hope this helps!!!

  6. Haha that's hilarious! What a weird feeling. I've often seen styles on blogs that I've seen in the store, and thought about mimicking. This is a great dress! 7.50 isn't bad at all!
