An Oxfam Blouse


Shirt: Oxfam, Skirt: Urban Outfitters, Shoes: River Island, Hat: H&M, Scarf: Accessorize, Lipstick: Topshop

Last weekend, the day arrived – I ditched my jacket. It was a bold (and slightly cold) move but, with the help of a scarf, I just about managed.  Having avoided the high-street since this orange skirt happened, I have been searching through for my wardrobe for some items I haven’t worn for a while so I can pretend I have something new. I dug out this Oxfam shirt I bought last year. I love the colour and the stand-up style of the collar. It feels as though it wouldn’t look too out of place in a vintage picture of a group of smart ladies – I’m being Smart in Disguise 🙂 Speaking of smart – I am going to this Fashion on the Ration exhibition next week at the Imperial War Museum so hopefully I should be full of interesting fashion facts about 1940’s street style!

Love, Hannah x

    Very cute! Love the blouse and the hat. I went to the 'Fashion on the Ration' exhibition last week, it's really interesting how the 'make do and mend' mentality really took hold with women customising their husbands' outfits and utilising all kinds of fabrics. I love that makeup was seen as a way of being patriotic by taking care of one's appearance in the face of the enemy! Very interesting, hope you enjoy it!
