Do you love clothes? Don’t have much of a budget? Like vintage shops but none near where you live? of course you do!
Well look no further than the nearest thrift / charity shop! Yes really. These forgotten heroes of the high street are often overlooked due to unfavourable connotations. Yes around 80% of the clothes are cast offs from your nans age group and you have to of couse make sure you give your finds a good wash, but dig a little deeper and you can uncover some real finds and often of the real-deal vintage variety or designer. Aside from the fact you can find a one off that isn’t being worn by everyone else you can be rest assured your hard earned cash is going to a good cause.
Here are my top 3 finds:
1. Gold pied à terre ankle boots (hello! They are Italian leather don’t you know)
2. Vintage Snugkoat blazer
3. Beaded bag
So when you next pass Oxfam don’t walk on by, give it a try! (could that be their new slogan I wonder? 🙂 )
