american apparel rummage sale mondays

Hey! I’m so sorry this is getting posted past midnight, i’ve had the busiest day ever running from one place to another and literally just now is the only time i’ve sat down. Grr!

Anyway around 5.30pm this afternoon I ventured through a little backdoor in brick lane with three security guards on the door, not really sure what to expect. What I found was thumping drum and bass and a warehouse full of American Apparel goods all with 85% off. (To be honest i did feel a bit like i’d walked into a Nathan Barley screenshot – my boyfriend instantly hated it in there.) Because I left it so late in the day to go (which was my intentional plan, mahaha) the clothes had been reduced even more. Score! I didn’t really get a huge amount of stuff because unless you like your clothes gold and spangly or neon there isn’t a world of choice, heh. But I did get £128 worth of stuff for £25. Which is not bad. At all.

The best thing I bought were these purple denim shorts which I love and picked up for £5 – should have been £35.

(sorry about the shot, i wore them out instantly and couldn’t be bothered to take them off haha)
My boyfriend got a hoodie reduced from £31 to £12. I then picked up two pairs of tights at £2 each, from £12. I also bought a little pair of leather mini shorts, sounds hideous I know but I wear a lot of long slouchy tees and i always feel uncomfortable wearing only leggings underneath? Is that weird?  I dont feel fully clothed, haha. So I figured a little pair of shorties wouldn’t make me too warm but spare me from embarassment if my top blows up and I feel uncomfortable wearing only leggings. They were £3 from £28! I then bought two headbands for £1 at 50p each from £5 each. Awesome! So overall, lots of bargains to be had.
My purple shorts in action! I love how they peek out subtly under my top!

The eye look is actually very similar to one I did a post on (although this one has a few more shadows, oops, love them all) which you can find here with a nice little tutorial 🙂 But here’s another photo anyway..
I was wearing MAC’s Gentle Simmer lipstick but it looks mostly rubbed off here..rubbish. Anyway this outfit I wore pretty much the same (minus the shorts) this Easter weekend as I went out with some of the team from work in Wimbledon for a night out. Here are a handful of snaps from my weekend to finish on. Hope you had a lovely lovely Easter, i’m off shopping again tomorrow so expect a shopping post coming up soon! Also I do read and appreciate every single one of your comments, thankyou 🙂
