Duster Dupe

Jacket & Shirt: Oxfam,  Skirt: Urban Outfitters, Backpack & Boots: Topshop, Lip Shimmer: Burt’s Bees in Rhubarb

Over the past few months I have been loving the duster style coats (ASOS have a beautiful range) so when I spotted this long-line, kimono style jacket in Oxfam I snapped it up instantly. That’s the thing I love about charity shopping – you can go in for a little browse and come out with something you’ve been loving for a good ol’ at a fraction of the high-street cost whilst also donating towards a wonderful cause – a win-win situation? I think so. My other charity shop steal was this round collared shirt (another one from Oxfam). 

One of the things I love about charity shopping is that I feel there is more scope to be creative and adventurous with clothing. I don’t worry so much about cutting the length of a dress and shortening it  (risquΓ©) or dipping the material in dye in an attempt to change the colour to make it more to my taste (doesn’t alwaayyys go according to plan but hey-ho). Sometimes it happens that I love the piece of clothing just as it is which is just as fun too! It might be that soon I don’t like the style of the duster coat as much and may shorten this kimono style jacket to wear with shorts, big ol’ earrings and red lipstick for a festival next summer. I won’t mind making this adjustment because fashion is fun, the way we choose to wear things makes us s’all different and I think that’s kind of cool. So next time you’re near a charity shop, maybe go in and pick something to make you’re own. I promise you – it’s a load of fun πŸ™‚

Happy Sunday πŸ™‚ 

Love, Hannah x
