Layers of Charity Shop

Dress: Oxfam, Boots: Topshop

It was one of those things. I went into Oxfam and picked out this dress without much consideration as to how I would style it and when I would wear it. I have come to the sartorial conclusion that it is definitely more of a dress for layering due to the gigantic (intentional) slit up the front of the skirt. The layering nature of this dress is perfect for me as I feel as though I am stuck in a bit of a style rut repeatedly favouring the same comfortable, minimal-effort dress. With a push towards a little layering I am hoping to find new outfit opportunities already in my wardrobe rather than splashing out on a whole bunch of new-ness. 

However, if you’re on the hunt for a little wardrobe revamp and you’re thinking about second-hand shopping (because, let’s face it, it’s the most exciting kind of shopping) then you’re in luck, Unite Students have collated a few blogger tips on how to pick up a little of that thrifted goodness. If you’ve well and truely caught the charity shopping bug and you are wondering how to bag more bargains than you can shake a stick at, I have also shared my charity shopping tips in past posts (here and here). Happy shopping!

    This dress is one of the most amazing pieces of clothing I've seen! Everything down to the shape, the colour, and the pattern. Even the intentional split up the front! I'm also a solid thrifter, and you're right it is totally the best type of shopping!
