Thrifty Ways


I bought this skirt in a charity shop a few weeks ago.
It cost 99p and it was the day I bumped into Kiki again.
I first met Kiki on International Women's Day and I was so inspired by her joie de vivre and talent.
A former social worker Kiki now spends her time making designer bags from recycled materials, volunteering for Oxfam and looking after her grandson.
I have commissioned Kiki to make a bag from my favourite skirt and just look what she has planned.
I can't wait to show it off.

Today I wore:
Shoes - Fitflop
Skirt - Oxfam ( H & M)
Vest - Gap
Necklace - Monsoon

  2. Cute skirt, I'd like to see the top tucked in. Could you wear it that way next time? (I'll wait!)

  3. You are so kind and inspiring - I feel very anxious now that my bag can satisfy all these expectations.

    Just as a little taster to hopefully intrigue you, I have used the skirt zip and the gathered skirt top to make a matching corsage.

    You will have seen that I made a start on my blog to describe the whole process of making your bag.

  4. Tucked in and with a belt, I'll wait for it, too!
    I love you haircut.

  5. How are you going with your Fitflops? I can't see mine doing anything for my backside!
