Favourite Charity Shop FindsFriday, October 02, 2015
Sadly a few of my favourite items are about to be put away until it warms up again but I wanted to share with you what I'd found.
I picked this up for only a few quid on a quick charity shop hunt with Sophie in Norwich. I just knew I'd love this shirt, when I put it on it feel very 'me'. I love the soft fabric, ditsy print and lace detailing, but what I like about it the most is that the print isn't in girly girl colours. Navy, green, orange and mustard make this shirt a winner for me.
Even though this Monsoon skirt is a size larger than I normally wear, I knew I wasn't going to be leaving it behind. I simply wear it on my hips instead of my waist.
It was a bargain at £4.49 and I adore the grown up ra-ra style. The t-shirt in the outfit on the left is also a charity shop find from last year, as are the bag and necklace in the outfit on the right.
I've never feel more 'Carrie Bradshaw in Paris' than I do when wearing this skirt. I'm desperate to find an excuse to wear it again!
Found on our bloggers hike around Ipswich, it was a no-brainer to buy this when I saw it in the British Heart Foundation for £7.49. It's already had made two appearances on the blog, here and here.
It's been something that I've worn a lot over the summer, and amazingly I managed not to spill anything on it. It lives to see another summer - yay!
The locket isn't a charity shop find but a birthday gift from my Mum. Isn't it the cutest? Inside it has a map showing the village we live in.
Since getting married I've been drawn to white dresses. I keep meaning to share with you the dress I wore the day after our wedding, I didn't want to revert back to normal clothes immediately, so I picked out an off white dress from ASOS and flounced around in it all day, feeling as close to bridal as I was going to get without wearing my actual wedding dress.
Of course not everything I find quite hits the mark (and Sophie is this for you). I recently found this raincoat. I thought it was simply splendid. I usually avoid this colour like the plague but the soft fabric and big buttons spoke to me, convincing me to buy it. In fact to begin with I put it back on the rail and left the shop, but I couldn't stop thinking about it. I hurried back in just before closing time and snapped it up.
I shouldn't have bothered*.
What's your favourite charity shop find? Anything you should've left on the rail?
*But it has given me what I think are my best outfit shots to date.
