#FoundInOxfam Henry Holland Dresses

You may or may not know but my favourite clothing collection (apart from anything Cath Kidston) has always Henry Holland. His collections at Debenhams have always caught my eye, but have aways been on the pricier side. So apart from sales and eBay I haven't added as many that I would have liked to my collection.

When I walked into Oxfam in Leicester a few weeks before my holiday I spotted a midnight blue velvet Henry Holland dress but unfortunately it was too small. However, I then found no less than SEVEN dresses scattered around the store! I may or may not have tried them all on, and came away with three for around £6 each!

The first one is this shirt dress covered all over in little pandas! I knew that I would be able to wear this all year round layered with leggings and long tops. When I was in Ibiza though I simply paired it with my white pumps from new look and I was on my way. It was so comfy, but I had to wear it with a good handful of talc on the thighs to prevent the chub rub!

The second dress is this pale yellow cross strap number. I was told for so many years that as a girl with pale skin I shouldn't wear pale colours, the colour wouldn't flatter me blah blah blah. I found that this dress had such a gorgeous print. I also wasn't at all concerned about the fact that this dress accentuated my broad shoulders (I told you this was the best holiday I have ever been on.) I paired these with my tan wedges, again from New Look ... not sponsored I wish it was! They do the best shoes ever!

Lastly is this lemons and limes dress! I have to admit, that sadly I think I will be selling this one as it is slightly too big on the boobs and the straps kept slipping down BUT I wore it on our last night when we went for a 7 course tasting menu and it looked and felt lovely and dressy! It is fully lined and the 50s style is exactly what I go for in dresses!

I hope this post may inspire you to have a look in charity shops as you never know what you will find!
