First Haul of 2019 : Keepin’ Casual in The Back Garden

Having social anxiety and a lazy booty doesn’t mean one has to exercise their antisocial behaviour without a modicum of decorum, does it? [yasssss in 2019 – i am recovering my fancy vocabulary!]

I am challenging this from my back garden today – with some items from my first haul of 2019!

** Ignore the face I was testing my new camera hence the WTF look.**

In the true spirit of who I really am (the Indiana Jones of Alt Clothing – Raider of Primark) i went for a little venture in Camden earlier in the week… And I got myself a new hat and coat from H&M (the coat is a business investment as I will deffo wear it for job interviews, yes HMRC, you read that correctly). Hat was £12 and coat was £49.99 but I used some points off my H&M app [download it!].

The dress was £8 from a charity shop and it will also definitely satisfy work’s strict rules … as well as my new budgeting rules! The belt is £7.59 from Ebay, you can find it here. The seller is UK based so it arrived fast and sound! It did not fall apart upon putting on, which is always a good sign when you buy accessories from Ebay.

Bag and boots are from Killstar and I LOVE THEM! They were both crimbo presents and I honestly can say I am surprised by how comfy the shoes are – I used to own the Luna trainers and they legit killed my feet – I walked back home in my socks the two times I wore them.  So I was worried about reordering shoes from Killstar, however these boots are awesome. I got them with the 20% sale they had over Christmas so a pretty good bargain for my xmas voucher (£75 for the boots and£35.99 for the bag) .


I am doing a massive clearout of clothing this weekend – some to charity and some will be sold online – because, if New Year equals New Me, it definitely means New Clothes ha! However my goal is to source ethically and economically so I will definitely be thrifting a lot more this year. After all, I am possibly being Brexited out so I might as well look truly foreign and special mwahaha!

  1. I rarely purchase Goth brands anymore , it’s just I sew most of my clothes, I do look at goth brand for inspiration. I source alot of my clothing from charity shops, occassional Primark do some fantastic accessories sometimes resassemble the Killstar’s. I love ebay, as I found some bargain and awesome belts and jewellery. My most recent find was a bird skull full length necklace for 99p.

    I always love your style and how you put outfits together. You always look fab.

    • Thanks very much for your comment, I really appreciate it! And I am a big Primark fan too- they sometimes have completely off the cuff stuff decently priced. Or lace dresses and overlays which can be layered nicely. I love foraging in various places in general- head to toe brand outfits aren’t my cup of tea, and not to mention super expensive. eBay is amazing as well!xx

  2. Looking awesome as ever. I think there’s something in the new year air, I’m planning a wardrobe clear out this afternoon – I have my eye on new frocks on Killstar and need to replenish the pennies through Ebay. Their bags are nice quality as well as looking great, I have the starmap backpack and it is truly the greatest backpack I’ve ever owned. People have stopped me in Sainsburys to ask where I got it from, it’s that pretty.

    I really do have to stop buying astral themed items this year though!

    Have fun thrifting, look forward to seeing the results.

    • Thank you! And definitely agreed in the new year air, I just gave away 3 bags of clothing to charity! I also feel like a renewal is due and since I thrift a lot I like to contribute 🙂
      Ooo I have seen that backpack and it is fab ! Nothing wrong with astral theme:) my flat is a tribute to the moon ;)x
