Charity Shop Challenge

Never underestimate a charity shop!

'They smell of old people' and 'they're full of rubbish' is the two most commons phrases I hear from people when I try to convert them. Okay a lot of charity shops may have a certain smell to them, but whack the items in your washing machine and they come out smelling like spring blossom! I also agree for the most part, that charity shops are full of some undesirable pieces but in amongst those bits, you can find some gems!

Don't believe me?
A Charity Shop is exactly where I got my Alexander McQueen Scarf and my 100% Cashmere Jumper!

The scarf had tags and was flawless, it was £50 and that's nothing compared to the happiness it has brought to my wardrobe!

My cashmere jumper was a bargain £12! Head to the high street and you're looking at atleast £100 (designer, even more!).

Even though you are grabbing yourself a deal, make sure you're still checking for marks, defects and holes. These pieces have already had a life, so signs of wear and tear are common so if you're not happy, don't buy!!

Why not set yourself the challenge of finding something you love from a Charity Shop this year?

Skull Print Scarf - Alexander McQueen (charity shop)
100% Cashmere Jumper - La Redoute (charity shop)

  2. Love this post. I hope there's a charity shop here in my place so I could run to it and shop. But anyway, charity shopping is worth it when you find something like THAT.
    Love, Fads

  3. Wow Tgat scarf was a great find! I just don't think I have the patience to trawl through the rubbing to find my gem but all the power to you! I would love it if you stopped by my blog and added this post to my fashion link up. I think my readers would really like your style!
