A lot of the blogs I follow are predominantly about fashion, thriftiness and fun. I think charity shopping can be all of these things. You can find a cheeky bit of fashion among the size 18 maxi skirts and men’s shirts, if you’re willing to rummage, look a bit harder. It’s the way many of my friends feel about TX MAXX, thinking it’s just a giant jumble sale and they can never find anything. Have a rummage! (Gosh I love that word, keep saying it, rummage, rummage ..) So I thought I’d share with you some of my favourite charity shop finds over the last six months or so. Here goes:
So this beauty cost me just £4. It looks huge, but it’s basically a glittery gold top complete with … shoulder pads! It’s a little bit cropped, so will look perfect with high waisted shorts and jeans for a night out. I’ll probably where it out when my dreaded exams are over, might even blog a picture for you!
Okay, so it kind of looks like a kilt. It’s not! It’s a lovely checkered high waisted skirt, that looks fab with tights boots and a waistcoat. Purchased this bad boy for just £2.50 in Windsor.
This is my favorite Grandad jumper which I purchased in a Carlisle charity shop for about a fiver. It smelt a little bit odd to say the least at first, so I had to wash it about three times before it was wearable but I love it now! It’s great just for lounging about and is a definite fav with skinny jeans.
This is a multi coloured skirt I found in Southampton for just £3. Apologies for the creases! Now I’ve dug it out of my wardrobe I think I’ll be wearing it to work this week with a black shirt, color pop all the way.
So here are all my purchases!
Hope you enjoyed that brief look into my closet. Whilst I love the Outfitters of Urban, Topshop and ASOS, you can’t beat the satisfaction of finding an absolute beaut of a bargain in a charity shop. So have a rummage guys! Will show you more purchases as they happen. Have a good day!
