This is a bit of a holiday flashback if you like. I miss being in Santorini way too much to even admit (see 10 reasons why you need to visit here). And in the memory of our lovely, lovely holiday back in June, and also in preparation for our Prague city break (which is in less than 3 weeks, oh my god!), I want to show you one of my favourite holiday outfits – which is also, I believe, rather inspiringly bargaineous!
So what do we have here? A black playsuit in a material very similar to satin (but obviously not – hence the reasonable price tag). Black one pieces can sometimes look a bit dull but this playsuit has a really flattering shape and the golden tassels add a little extra oriental something to it. Originally this was from H&M but I got it from Depop for something like £10 if I remember right! And it was brand new with tags, bam! I have to admit that in Santorini I wore this with knee high gladiator sandals because the beaches were pebbly but initially I wanted to wear it with these nude barely there sandals which I also got from Depop for about £10 and were brand new. Because the satin effect and tassels on the playsuit are quite bold (at least for me, heh), I added a matte black coral-style necklace from H&M – again, got this in sale last year for £3! And a dainty floral crown from Beauxoxo which I’ve had for a few years now I think.
It’s not a ‘I spent 3 hours dollyin’ up’ type of ensemble but it’s comfortable and makes you look like you made some effort. Oh, have I mentioned that the whole outfit comes up to some £30 odd quid? The power of thrifting.
