Being a great supporter of all clothes second-hand my usual go-to places to shop are charity shops such as Oxfam, Barnardo’s, Prospect Hospice and many, many more. I usually overlook vintage shops, not because I love them any less, but because they seem to be located in areas I dont often find myself in. However, whilst experiencing my first ever bottomless brunch at The Jar Kitchen** (with poached eggs, bloomin’ amazing donuts and a few bubbles) my friend suggested a trip to Rokit. Not one to have to be asked twice to shop amongst a whole lot of retro loveliness, we hotfooted (albeit, with a slight prosecco sway in our hotfoot) off to one of my favourite vintage haunts.
As with the suggestion of going to Rokit, I didn’t need much persuasion to prompt me to purchase this revamped vintage jumper. Being a little cropped it’s perfect for those on the shorter side like, ahem, me! If, also like me, you are now hibernating for winter during the evenings and weekends, Rokit have a wonderful website with a selection of unique upcycled sweatshirts (including a burgundy cold-shoulder number which is next on my vintage wishlist), dresses, skirts and a enough second-hand loveliness to fill plenty of those Christmas stockings.
** Sidenote: How I hadn’t discovered bottomless brunches sooner is beyond me – they should be at least a bi-weekly occurrence.
