I am going to put ALL my clothes in this little box.

27 Mar

I turned up to Benny’s work today in my new favourite outfit – see below – and his work collegue said to him “You could never live with her – the fashion Police would wake you up every morning.” Any normal person would take that as an insult, but i’m not normal so thanks Michael for the compliment :D.

*puts on The Rock’s voice* Finally, Chantal has come back to the world of charity shops.

After an extra long hiatus in which I couldn’t get myself over to the wondrous charity shop-filled high street (and also widest incase you didn’t know) of Stockton-on-Tees, I at long last took my rip-off white converse back into one of my favourite places in the world with a belly full of Burger King and a pocketful of potential dream buys.

I ran off to my absolute numero uno CS as it likes to close at random times every time I go there and you never know whether it’s going to be open for another 2 hours or closed 40 minutes ago. Thankfully it was still open, I rummaged through the beyond messy rails (they really need to sort that shop out) and my happiness soon turned to disappointment when I couldn’t find anything I liked as I didn’t fancy owning a deflated puffa jacket or a tan 3/4 length leather coat.

Bonjour blogarinis,

Sorry about my little leave of absence but snow + essay + no money = one sad little Chantal. However, as Take That would say I’m (btw is anybody else pissed off about Mark Owen being downgraded now that the glorified druggie who is Robbie Williams is back?) back for gooooodddd.

Now, I haven’t had a BIG shopping trip in ages and yes, I am extremely depressed about it but with a few random walks through town to get to the bus station or to buy important things like food and knitting needles I have managed to scour out a few barginous buys.

First up, its every girls best friend – no not diamonds but Primark of course. Unfortunately, everybodys favourite shop hasn’t pleased me very much over the last couple of months so I wasn’t expecting to come across anything amazing while wondering aimlessly through. Continue reading

Hat full of stars.

Oh, I really hate this snow now! No not because of the cold or the fact that I’ve slipped over about 10 times but because I have had to wear the same shoes every day with all of my outfits!!

As far as wellies these are a-okay but big black rubber boots simply don’t look good with a micro mini skirt but they are a necessity in this crazy-ass weathers so I’m going to have to put-up and shut-up.

Bowler hat: Stiches (fancy dress shop) – £5
Tweed blazer: Charity shop – £4
Camel blouse: Charity shop – £1
Black bodycon skirt: H&M – £7.99
Wooly tights: Primark – £2
Wellington boots: Primark – £10

I feel like a proper englishman in my tweed blazer and bowler hat – “Good afternoon to you Sir.”

Charity Chic extraordinaire – Part 2.

11 Nov

Bonjour Blogarinis, I’m back with part 2 of my amazing charity chic week. After rummaging through the Charity shops in disappointing Darlington and the shock that was Middlesbrough my legs carried me (via the 36) to the ever magnificent town centre of Stockton-on-Tees.

Now, I hadn’t visited Stockton in a while due to: heavy bags which I could not be bothered to lumber around town, an episode of overwhelming sleepiness and it was raining cats and dogs (I wish this was literal.)

But this week I was determined to get myself down there and find some of this Autumn/Winters biggest fashion trends for a quarter of the price Primark has to offer and oh boy, I did. Continue reading

Charity Chic #4.

1 Oct

Things I missed about England while I was on holiday:

1. Gypsy-Lady

2. Benny

3. Facebook/Twitter

4. Wrestling

5. Charity Shops!!!

So as soon as I got home after I kissed and cuddled both Gypsy and Benny, went through two weeks worth of Facebook and Twitter and caught up on all my wrestling I headed out to the charity shops.

It seems that because I was away lots of great items built up and there they appeared all sat waiting nice and patiently in the various shops waiting for Chantal to come along and give them a brand new home.
