Hi there

Our last film of the season was the amazing, and slightly bonkers, Grand Budapest Hotel, directed by Wes Anderson.  The Hillcrest Film Society now has a break until October when we’ll have another set of 10 films to show through the year to our local community.

Another film, another outfit worn that I can definitely say cost just over £10 including the shoes!



It was a warm night last Saturday so I chose a lovely floaty tulle, ballerina length skirt bought last year for £4.50, plus a top that was £1.99 and sandals at 3.99.

The skirt is simply lovely and I’m surprised it wasn’t sold as ‘vintage’ for a much higher price, as its yoke and length is very reminiscent of skirts worn in the 50s era.


Hello, btw, to all my new followers and welcome to this blog, which sometimes digs deep into issues, and other times just sets out to enjoy the glories of charity shop shopping.   Also if I’m honest, the main rationale and engine of this blog is to do my best to change perceptions of ageing, yay!

That’s all for now.

With love

Penny, the frugalfashionshopper

    That skirt really is lovely! It reminds me of the 1950s illustrations of ballet teachers in the Noel Streatfield books I read as a wee girl.

    Yes, I just pounced on the skirt when I saw it in the charity shop! It was lovely and cool to wear on a warm night.
