Today I wore two of my most recent bargains, the paisley scarf and paisley Zara shirt, which I bought for just twenty-five pence each from my favourite charity shop. Paisley is a print I've never really worn before, but I'm so glad I bought these, I adore them, I'll definitely be on the hunt for more paisley pieces from now on! I really am fond of this outfit, I think that the different shades of brown plus the hints of yellow and red work ever so well together. This is a combination I'll definately be wearing again. Love, Jazzabelle. P.S. I'd like to say thank-you to Ellie for sending me the most adorable Christmas card, to Alice for sending me the most thoughtful little presents and to Nic for inspiring how I wore the shirt and bow! I must get my hands on some adorable tassels to experiment with!

  19. 25p!! That's beyond a bargain, and looks great. I love a bit of paisley. I think it's because my boyfriend was wearing a paisley shirt when I first met him all those years ago. Awww. How soppy.

  24. Lovelove this outfit sweet! You have the best eye for bargains ever, the scarf and shirt add the most perfect paisley texture to your outfit (: xxx

  25. you look so lovely and this outfit is considerably inspiring. you make jeans look really stylish - i always fear away from jeans, (& that i actually don't own any) as i think they won't look girly enough but this outfit definitely proves me wrong. i stand corrected! i'm on the hunt for some topshop ones actually after christmas - the english weather is panicking me and my outfit choices! have a lovely weekend, m'love!

  30. I didn't know what paisley or tassel meant, I totally looked those words up, hehe. I love your scarf and shirt! It's a different outfit from what we're used to seeing on you, but yet, it's totally you :).

    Hope you have fun plans for the weekend! :)

  36. I love the autumnal colours you are wearing Jazz- gorgeous as always! :) You always do so well finding stuff too- I think the shops by me are so expensive in comparison!

  42. I love how you've got two patterns going on in this outfit and I'm very jealous of your cardigan. Hope to see you in London soon, maybe some thrifting?

  43. Hi Jazmine, I have an awful feeling I didn't thank you for getting involved with my mummy's scissors project. If I did, then thank you again! But if not, I really appreciate the effort, and the black lace looked wonderful!
    I am woefully behind with catching up with your blog, but it looks like you've put up some gorgeous posts. I love all the colours here, and as I've said before - I always enjoy seeing how others style charity shop finds. Oh & your room is lovely (from the photos a few posts down). I'm the kind of nosy person who loves exploring other people's houses, so it was a treat to see images of yours.
    Finally, in answer to your V & A question - I would love to be a member, but don't visit enough to merit it. I would jump at the chance to see that Ballet Russes exhibition again though. It was incredible. I've only just finished reading the book now too!

  48. Hi Jazzabelle. Thanks for the comment you left on my blog it was lovely :) Just so you know I've put a link to your blog in a post I wrote today about how your brilliant thrifted items have inspired me to try charity shopping. I hope you don't mind? I'll take your name off if you do xx

  50. Haha, I know what you mean about Westfield! My sister was definitely leading the way; I think a map might have helped..

  51. Wow - this outfit is just...well, wow. I love the shirt and lace combo, it makes it really girly, which I always struggle with then i button shirts all the way to the top. You must have some awesome charity shops near you, nothing in the ones near me are ever that cheap (or nice!), even grotty tops are £8! x
