Hello! Today I have a charity shop haul for you guys! I love charity shopping because you never know what you are going to find. I found some really cool stuff today and I’m super excited to share it with you.
Lately, I’ve been trying to simplify my wardrobe. I have so many clothes yet I feel like I don’t have any because nothing goes together. I’m also a bit of a hoarder. I have clothes in my wardrobe that I’ve had since I was 14. They look way to immature for me to wear at age 19, but they still fit, so I keep them. I’d been meaning to have a clear out before I bought any more crap but I just couldn’t resist these items. They fit in perfectly with the wardrobe I am trying to create.
The charity shops I visited were St David’s Hospice, Tenovus & Bernardo’s.
Let’s start with my favourite item!
I picked up this jumper from Tenovus for £4, its pastel blue with hot pink fluff all over so when you wear it, it looks pink but up close you can see how gorgeous it is. Look at that close up! It’s so beautiful. In the shop I didn’t recognise the label, it just said G21, but when I got home and looked it up I found out it was an Asda label. It’s quite cool actually, G21 is designed by up & coming fashion graduates. Maybe it’s a sign I shouldn’t have dropped out of my fashion course last week haha!
I found this really cute windowpane print shirt in Bernardo’s for £3. It’s made with cotton flannel and it’s so comfy. It’s a size 16 so its huge on me but that’s how I like my flannel shirts.
I also found this pretty embroidered white shirt in Bernardo’s for £4. I really like this one, it’s going to look so nice tucked into a denim skirt. The label says size 16, but it seems a bit small to be a 16. Oh well, it fits my bust perfectly and leaves the rest of the shirt loose and breezy- perfect for summer!
I picked up this jumper in St Davids Hospice for £1. I don’t have any jumpers with lots of gaps in like this so I’m glad I found this one.
This was probably the most interesting find! It’s a St Michaels Chanel Inspired cardigan. It looks really nice on, kind of like a bomber jacket. It’s a size 14 but it fits perfectly well.
After doing a little bit of research and comparing tags online. I’m pretty confident that it’s from the 90’s. My best guess is actually early 90’s because as you can see on the tags it’s supposed to have shoulder pads. They were still decently popular in the early 90’s but luckily the fashion forward previous owner of my cardigan picked hers off.
Last but not least, I found this size 18 pair of corduroy trousers in Tenovus for £1. They are originally from the Edinburugh Woollen Mill and they are such good quality. My plan for these is to refashion them into one of those cute button up mini skirts, so that will be a future blog post.
Thankyou for reading! I’m going to be posting more regularly now that I have a bit more times on my hands.
