I’ve got a bit of a thing for gingham at the moment. Last year I picked up a short sleeve shirt from Sue Ryder after a live streaming session of London Fashion Week and instantly falling for all clothes Henry Holland. The show featured a hell’uva lot of gingham gorgeousness. It was only a matter of time before all things white with a little pink/blue/red check filtered down to the high-street. One of the (many, many) great things about second-hand shopping is that you don’t need to wait until loved looks and lust-worthy items from London Fashion Week find their way into Topshop/Miss Selfridge/New Look. You can often find touches of the catwalk looks for less in the always exciting, forever varied second hand shops. By visiting often, or typing in keyword into websites such as Oxfam or eBay, you can usually get in on the trend per-retty much straight away. On a route around Barnardo’s a few weeks ago, I spotted this gingham shirt hidden amongst the rails and was more than happy to part with a few quid to make it mine! With it not being quite warm enough to pair this shirt with cut-off denim shorts and sandals, accessorised with a Pina Colada (a gal can dream, ey?) I decided to wear it with the jumpsuit I picked up in my Haulternative for the bloomin’ amazing #FoundinOxfam campaign.
Have you picked up any new favourites from those wonderful charity shops lately?
