It seems that these days I don’t realise that I’m wearing an entirely thrifted outfit (minus the shoes) until I start blogging about it. Today’s outfit is an entirely Oxfam outfit. The t-shirt was originally from & Other Stories which is a brand I have admired from afar this year so when I spotted this ‘perfect for autumn’ green number in Oxfam, I swiftly counted out my coins and made a bee line for the tills. I then picked up the skirt a few weeks ago on my first trip to the Covent Garden Oxfam store during Charity Fashion Live. As well as picking up a few bargains from the beautifully filled rails, I was also able to listen to a talk given by the co-founder of Fashion Revolution, Orsola de Castro. Orsola spoke about how she began crocheting round holes in her favourite worn jumpers in order to re-invent them. The message I picked up from the inspiring talk was that if you have a favourite item with holes in or it’s starting to look a little worn, you can do a little fashion DIY or wear it as it is and still rock it! She’s very much a gal after my own heart!
I’m in a little competition over on Style Fruits to be their blogger of the month, if you have a spare 5 seconds I would be super-duper grateful if you could vote – the link is here 🙂 Thanks so much in advance and I’m sending many virtual well-wishes your way 🙂
