OOTD: Fit and Flare

Recently, I went on a bit of a charity shop haul, and I was going to do a haul video on it, but I've been having a few problems with my camera at the moment, and so quickly shot this outfit while I could. As my town is literally run by charity shops (we have 7 last time I counted), I'm always spoilt for choice when it comes to new finds! I always get a warm fuzzy feeling inside when I buy something great from a charity shop and know that the money is going to a good cause. And this trip was an extremely successful one; I found some great stuff that will be featuring heavily in my outfits. 

The charity shop items in this outfit are the trench coat and the shirt underneath my jumper. I think they are probably my favourite items out of my haul! The Topshop trench coat was one that I caught out of the corner of my eye on the size 10 rail, and it was just so pretty that I had to pull it out and have a proper look! It is a thing of beauty, but I was a little worried that it may be a tiny bit small...but it wasn't! It fit me perfectly and even though it didn't have any tags on it, it had only been worn once at the most! It's in a classic beige colour, and nips in at the waist to honour the hourglass shape as seen on the Prada and Dior catwalks. Unfortunately, it didn't come with the belt, but I actually didn't mind as it still holds its fitted shape without it! I'm on the lookout for a replacement one anyway, but it isn't too much of a problem. 

The shirt is a fitted M&S one that is over-sized, but still has some shape to it to show off some femininity! And being brought up watching Quadrophenia with a Mod for a father, I was naturally drawn to the monochrome checks that I know so well! They just look gorgeous on this shirt! I have a feeling I'll be wearing it for a long time!
