Charity Shop silk polka dot blouse ❖ H&M skirt ❖ Ragtrader at Etsy cameo ring ❖ Black ribbon found in my ribbon box

This is what I wore one day last week. Sometimes the favourite pieces in my wardrobe can be the most unexpected. I found this blouse in a charity shop near my work for £3.50, 100% silk and in the most immaculate condition.
