This is what I wore to the Clothing at Tesco cocktail party on Thursday evening, something a little bit different from my usual style. The H&M gilet and St Michael velvet top are my most recent charity shop finds, I adore them both so much! I wouldn't usually spend £8 on a secondhand piece, but the gilet was brand new with tags on (the RRP was £29.99) and I did manage to blag it down from £10 after I had a little conversation about the Victoria and Albert Museum with the lady. It's actually a size twelve, but I think it fits me rather perfectly and it means I'll be able to layer it with my favourite jumpers when it gets colder! This is also the first time I've worn velvet since I was a little girl, I really do dislike the texture, but it was just too lovely not to buy, I didn't even realize it was St Michael until I got home! Have you bought anything from your local charity shops recently? And what do you think of this more 'edgy' and 'grown up' style on me? Love, Jazzabelle. P.S. Have you entered my giveaway to win this beautiful F&F Limited Edition dress below? Be quick, it ends on Wednesday!

  6. I also think you look incredible, your legs are amazing! I have that gilet and bought it at full price, its about a year old if that - lucky you!
    I have bought two felt hats, one black and one bottle green both of which I adore from charity shops recently. Have discovered that Morden has some gems :)

  7. Lovely outfit, I love finding things that push me out of my comfort zone. I think this look still has your stamp on it, purely because of the spot tights and scarf, but it definitely has a slight Alexander Wang edge. I think you'll find your style will naturally develop and it's great to watch it happen!

  8. Gosh your legs just get longer and longer! You look stunning.
    You look great and it is always nice to try out something different because then you can become more comfortable and your style can develop. Love your headband!

  33. Great look - I love the tights. Like other, my local charity shops just don't seem to have the finds! I am taking myself to local car boot sales ASAP! x

  34. I absolutely love this look. It has slightly more of an edgy vibe than your usual ensembles, but remains as delicate and lovely as always. What charity shops are you going to??????! This is a serious question as you find the most divine pieces! Whenever I venture in to my nearest one's I leave either empty handed and stressed or with something truly heinous. Please share your bargain-hunting wisdom! X
