micro-SCOPE

you americans call them thrift stores, us brits call them charity shops.
whatever you call them, they're good. whilst waiting for my mum the other day, i absent mindedly popped into SCOPE (a charity for multiple sclerosis) because their shoes looked good. unfortunately, they were all little sizes. i twirled a necklace holder and spotted a pretty leaf necklace, and whilst wandering towards the cash desk, flipped through some dresses hanging up. a shine caught my eye!
i love the spontainuity of charity shopping, and the little treasures you can so easily find.
i bought this dress for £4.25, and it seems almost new. i love the shimmer of the fabric, and i want to wear it with coloured tights come winter. i'm thinking aubergine or burgandy...
i might wear it tonight, to see my friend playing Alice in Alice in Wonderland.





mmm breeze!

That dress is amazing! And I'm pretty sure I've mentioned this before but I adore your hair color. And I know what you mean about all the small feet-ed women in the world because I am not one of them.

Hi

Lovely dress and so glad you found it at Scope - I work for that charity! Just to point out, Scope is a charity that supports people with cerebral palsy, not multiple sclerosis. Our aim is that disabled people achieve equality and have access to full human rights.

Thank you for your support by shopping with us and hope the dress continues to delight!
