Levis Trousers And Charity Shops Finds Worth Finding

When is a bargain, not a bargain?

When is something that looks great, not great?

When they do not fit!!


Do you ever start a post and never finish it?

Today trying to clear out some of my unloved posts in draft that got started and never finished. I found this post right at the end, from over a year ago.

85 posts, yes I have in draft 85.

All started with an idea that got lost or forgotten about…

Anyway back to the Levis, I picked them up last year when having a nosey around the charity shop. My heart beat fast, I loved them, the colour, the style the length.

A Bargain Β£2.50 a pair, brand new tagged up!!

Got them home and to tight!

Perfect length but to tight!

Do the fit now?

Runs off to try?


But the good news is I am going to make them fit after Christmas.

So keep your eye out for the post!

These are one bargain that is going to stay a bargain!

Do you buy something that you think is a bargain, only to find out when you get home it does not fit?

Do you have unloved posts in draft? how many? please tell!

One last thing before I go I have a whole lot of new blog buttons!

Do you like them?

Please, please say yes?

If not lie πŸ˜‰

Haha.. See you all tomorrow for Welcome to the weekend blog hop ….

    I love the colours of those trousers Claire! You have got to fit in them somehow!:) Your new header and buttons look great! I have a few posts in draft. Recently I deleted some. I really need to get cracking and have a lot more. I always like to be prepared ahead of time. You are certainly well prepared – 85! That is wonderful.

    …Also, I have been meaning to ask you for ages- you know that shirt dress you have that has a black collar and cuffs and the main design is a sort of orangey swirly pattern, where did you buy it from? I am longing to get that dress, so I want to know what to search Ebay for in hope that someone is selling their old one at some point!!!!!! xx
