Charity shops!!

I have recently bought a couple of things from charity shops including a necklace. It had pearly coloured leaves and wooden beads. I wasn't very keen on the initial look of it, so I decided to paint it with my Topshop nail varnish.

This is the necklace before:
And this is the finished necklace! Its now a bronze/gold colour which I love!!!

I also bought a cute black and white polka dot sleeveless shirt, which was £3.50 from one of the charity shops (it was originally from Marks and Spencer). It only buttoned 3/4 of the way, so I decided to safety pin the top to make it look as if it was buttoned to the top.
I loved it because it was a take on the dalmatian spots which is on trend this winter.
We went to see the midnight showing of the new Twilight film Breaking Dawn for my house mates birthday. But before that we went out for tapas and cocktails. This is what I wore for the evening. My new charity shop shirt, leather look leggings from River Island and my brogues from Primark. The lipstick I am wearing is from Topshop, I'ts called Inhibition. I'm quite impressed with it, it's a dark red berry colour which is a colour I have never tried before. I will defiantly be buying more Topshop lipsticks!!
