Prior to moving from one area of the big city to another, I had to ensure that I made the most of the wonderful second-hand shops in my area. On the numerous occasions I ventured in, I came up trumps a fair few times. With the khaki suede coat being the first of my favourite new (but second hand) purchases, I went on to discover many hidden gems amongst the packed rails. I went on to discover a retro Ellesse jumper, the comfiest slouchy grey t-shirt with an open back and colourful, summer suitable shorts with scribblings of love written on them. I have previewed all of these purchases on Instagram Stories because, yup, I finally figured out how to use it. One of the purchases was the Topshop top I’m wearing here. New, with all the tags in tact, it was definitely not one to leave on the rails. Pie-crust style necklines seem to be engulfing the high-street and this t-shirt is my way of getting in on the trend for a lot less with the help of Oxfam. I have shared a few of my tips on how to get the most from charity shopping in a few previous post so if you’re heading out to donate to charity (read: buy all the loveliness) then have a little read of theses oldies – Five Tips for Charity Shopping and Five Tips for Charity Shopping: Part II. And be sure to let me know if you buy anything, I’m a little nosey like that y’see.
