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 (risqué) 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 🙂
Happy Sunday 🙂
