Why does it always rain on me?

I'm so excited I made my first charity shop purchases! With all the hits and tips from the blogesphere I went charity shop shopping yesterday. I have been before but been very unlucky and never found anything I like, but after sifting through every size (not just my own) I found some cute pieces. I was so pleased with myself, I will defiantly be doing this more often. Not only is it much cheaper than buying new, its recycling too and helping out a charity. Being thrifty is defiantly back in fashion.


This was the first thing I picked up, how adorable is this? I have no idea where its originally from, but I got it in the Salvation Army for £2.49. Its perfect to throw on over a peter pan collar or wear with a good pair of skinnies. I love it.


This was the second think I bought. This pic makes it look massive, it isn't huge in real life but is over sized enough and will look fab with some leggings! I has some sexy shoulder pads going on too, I'm not sure if they are going to stay or not yet, we'll see. This was £2 from Shelter.

I'm really happy I finally got some things from the charity shops, I was beginning to give up!

Have you got any fab finds recently?

  5. Those are some great finds. I've heard that certain areas are better for good charity shops finds than others. I have a colleague who lives in a really posh and trendy part of London and she regularly finds Christian Dior, Tiffany and even some Louboutins once! xx
