And in a flash, it’s 2018! It’s January the 2nd. I’m still at the stage of the year where I’m thinking that 2018 will bring, as a certain Miss Jones would say, ‘A new year, a brand new me’. But a slightly less tired, intoxicated and mince pie filled me would be great for now. As with 2016, 2017 bought mainly charity shop outfits to my blog. I continued to favour charity shops over the high-street so I thought it was only right to dedicate a post to a round-up of second-hand outfits.
I continued to wear some of my favourite charity shop purchases from previous years throughout 2017 including the black culotte jumpsuit from Sue Ryder (for which I’m sure the price per wear is now negative..) and the cut-off Oxfam denim dress I have had for bloomin’ years. I also picked up some new absolute favourites including a dress from Crisis. I picked this dress up from Crisis’ new shop in Archway which is ah-mazing. I also managed to pick up a few items that should have been bloody expensive but rang through the til for less than a tenner in the shape of an Alice Temperly summer dress (from Fara) and a Commes Des Garçons top (from Scope). Rather than talk through every single charity shop item I liked throughout 2017 (and BOY could I chat about that for a duration), I thought it would be more interesting to leave you with pictures of my charity shop outfits.
Along with the round-up of second-hand pictures, I also wanted to say THANK YOU so much if you have read one, seven or all of my blog posts this year. I am eternally grateful and am still waiting for the day I can virtually send you a glass, hell, a bottle of Prosecco. I feel as though we’re getting closer. I should be able to ask Alexa to pick a bottle of your favourite up from your local shop any day now. Fingers crossed for 2018, ey. Last year I said that if I bump into you in a charity shop, you have a voucher from me to buy a thank you drink, that voucher will never expire! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU.
Cheers to 2018. And may your year bring you many, many, many charity shop finds.
