An (Almost) Entirely Oxfam Outfit: #2

Dress, Bag & Boots: Oxfam, Belt: Urban Outfitters

As with an outfit I posted a few weeks ago, this outfit is made up of almost all Oxfam purchases. The thing I love about charity shopping is that you never really know what to expect. I love that sometimes you can walk into a charity shop and the rails are rammed with high-street favourites such as Topshop and Urban Outfitters - you can buy any of these items and be rest assured that they will slot into any wardrobe nicely and can be worn easily. I also love when you pick up a dress from an unknown brand - maybe it's vintage, maybe not but the print and style is something you can imagine would set you back a fair bit if you purchased new. I spotted this button-down dress a few weeks ago in Oxfam. I love that it can be doubled up as a dress (with a belt and boots) and a kimono-style jacket which I think would be great worn open with denim shorts/dresses/skirts underneath. I'm off to Sri Lanka next Saturday (eeeeek) and this will definitely slot nicely into the 'I need to pack sensibly and light' category. 

Yesterday I wore this outfit to an event at Beyond Retro's amazing Dalston store. The event was all about finding the dream vintage dress (#mydreamvintagedress). They had set aside some amazing dresses for myself and other bloggers to try on and I can confirm - I found my dream vintage dress. It's the perfect number for Sri Lanka and it sparkles so is a win-win in my sartorial book. I would definitely recommend stopping by at Beyond Retro if you're looking for the perfect summer/wedding guest/holiday dress - it's rammed with all things vintage and loveliness :)
