T-Shirt: Shaw Trust, Skirt: Topshop, Bag: OLD but Similar, Shoes: Dr Martens, Bracelet: Oxfam, Necklane: Urban Outfitters

A few weeks ago a good friend a I did our usual round of the charity shops in my local area. I picked up this Topshop t-shirt from Shaw Trust for around the £2. I love the trim and can’t wait to wear it all throughout the summer with all things denim, skirts and shorts. It was also on this shopping trip that I picked up a skirt not to dissimilar to a skirt in Alexa Chung’s collection for Marks and Spencer so it was a good trip all in all. With this outfit being a little 90’s inspired I thought it was only appropriate I wear a chocker style necklace made with a little leftover ribbon. 

I love the whole 90’s fashion vibe – not only because it reminds me of growing up and leading the simple life (finishing school at 3pm with the biggest decision of the evening being whether to have fish fingers or chicken nuggets), it is also an era which I think the perfect look can be achieved using the simplest of fashion DIY’s. For a little inspiration I ventured into Urban Outfitters (for upcycling researching purposes only…) and headed to the vintage section which is always full of items which could so easily be achieved with a charity shop purchase. As well as cut-off t-shirts which would be super easy to achieve for around £3 with a thrifted t-shirt and a pair of scissors, I also noticed a fair few scrunchies around the shop. If you’re after a cheap way to inject a little 90’s ness into your life I posted a simple scruchie fashion DIY a few years ago. Or, you could skip the DIY and make yourself fish fingers and chips to eat whilst watching Sweet Valley High. Take me back to the 90’s now!
