So, a couple of months back I purchased this Matalan scuba skirt for the princely sum of four squids. It made a fitting addition to my ever burgeoning collection, plus I thought it might look cute with these boots. Which it totally does. Imagine then my surprise and delight upon finding the matching top in a Hastings chazza for £3.99. (I also scored a plain, pull-on Simply Be denim pencil skirt for the same amount. Unworn. My Thrift Fu was awesome that day).
I don’t know how many years I’ve had these 1980s bangles but at £1.60 the pair they’ve certainly paid for themselves on the ol’ cost-per-wear front. And are they a perfect match or what? But wait…
When taking the pics I couldn’t for the life of me understand why the top felt less comfortable than I remembered. I hadn’t remembered the neck being quite this high either.
It wasn’t until bedtime I realised I’d been wearing the fecker back to front.
Oh, come on, we’ve all done it.
