Branching out

This is my first post about a vintage item of clothing that I have picked up for next to nothing in a charity shop.  I got this on Monday for the princely sum of one whole English pound!

Its is a black and white slash neck, half sleeve, top from the 1980s.  It has a superb leaf/branch pattern all over it, which is very ‘on trend’ at the moment.  The top looks great when it is teamed with contrasting accessories.  I have taken two photos of it to show you how it can be transformed. 

Branching out...on its own

In the second photo, I have paired the top with a chunky lipstick red necklace (50p from guess where?!) & a matching red Italian leather belt (TK Maxx – home of quality belts).  Who would know that this fabulous ensemble cost less than a tenner?  I am on the hunt for a red vintage cinch belt but have yet to find one I like.

Another amazing thing about this one pound top……it DOESN’T NEED IRONING!  Just wash & hang up to dry.  A busy woman’s dream.
