Style Inspiration | The Thrifty Friend


I am one of those people that could spend hours scouring charity shops and never find anything good. My friend Emily however, is one those lucky few who finds something good every time she walks into one and paired with the fact that she's also a pretty good sale shopper she's ended up having one of the cheapest yet nicest wardrobes I've seen. 

Her style is quite quirky and all about pretty dresses and skirts. Whenever you compliment anything she's wearing she always follows your compliment with 'oh it was in the sale' or 'it was only £5'. Case in point is the beaut skirt she's wearing from Joy (a shop I rarely go in because hello expensive) for only £12 in the sale. She kindly let me take some pictures of her as long as, in her words, 'I make her look fantastic' so Emily, I hope I haven't disappointed...





What do you think of Emily's style? Who is your style inspiration?

  1. Her style seems flawless, the skirt is so pretty and burgundy looks beautiful on Emily! I'm always a little jealous of people who can find amazing items on sale, it never happens to me! :D

  11. Emily looks beautiful and I love how she's styled her skirt! I think it all comes down to patience when scouring the racks and snagging a great deal, though sometimes it can be a hit or miss! Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you're having a great week so far!

  14. I can never find nice stuff! I think it's bc I'm not very good at seeing an items potential and what it might go with.
