anarchy in the uk

don't forget, you can still enter my giveaway here!
last weekend, i went to a small car boot sale nearby. i was mainly going to look for fabric to use for my final piece for art, but it was a bit disappointing on the clothes front really as there were only about 10 stalls, one of which was selling pet food!
i still managed to get quite a few good things though, i bought these cds for £1 each.
i downloaded kate nash's album ages ago, but somehow it disappeared from my computer so it was nice to get it back again. also, i've been wanting to have a listen to james' first album (i have the second) because i feel weird listening to artists out of sync. yes, i know that is strange but i can't help my audiophile tendencies; think of me as a less oppressed lane kim.

this book only cost me 30p & i've been wanting to get a copy for a while, as it's one of those books that we always end up having a discussion about in english! the guy on the stall tried to get me to buy three for £1, but i think he needs a bit of help with his selling logic.

my favourite (and cheapest!) buy of the day was this swallow necklace, which is a lovely antique gold colour. it only cost me 20p & it has the cutest bird charms ever! i can't decide if i want to keep it to wear because it's a slightly awkward length (it's a double chain necklace), or to take it apart to make my own jewellery from it. i think for now i'm just going to stick with it as it is.
for some reason, i came over all gothic & bought this sheer black blouse for £1. i deliberated for quite a while over it, as i literally never wear black, but i just thought the peter pan collar was too cute to leave. i tried it on when i got home & realised it was a lot more sheer than i first thought (although the light in my room was odd, so it isn't quite as see-through as it looks here). at the moment i'm trying to decide how inappropriate it would be to wear this to school, but i'll probably wear it anyway. a little bit of anarchy is always good.


  1. ALl these £1 ????????!?!?!
    Omgah. Why am I alwaysa in the wrong place at the wrong time, ha!

    But lovely photograph with you....and I need to read that book!

    P.s I have a new post, also :)

  2. I really really really love this necklace with the birds, because I love birds! I am trying to find one and I can't and you found one too cheap! Wow!

  3. I love the blouse :D x

  4. That blouse is a wonderful find, it's so gorgeous and would look so cute with maybe a floral skirt so it's not too gothic?
    Hope you enjoy Angela's Ashes, it's such a sad but beautiful book...

  5. GBP 1 for that awesome blouse? Great buy. It IS more sheer than I could wear myself but you can always wear a tank under or a jumper over. ;P

  6. That blouse is fantastic! I absolutely love the collar on it. You're making me want to go car booting now! Which local one did you go to?


  7. your casual anarchism made me smile :)

  8. I adore the blouse! I love how sheer it is. Oh great, now I sound like a pervert. Haha. The necklace is so pretty too. Bargains! x
