When is comes to shopping, I like to go to a mixture of places. Most of my clothes are from the high street and online, my favourite stores being Topshop, ASOS, Zara and Primark. I also love high end fashion such as Mulberry, Burberry and Aspinal of London. And on the other hand I also adore charity shops. I think charity shops sometimes have a bad name. People see them as really messy (which sometimes they can be) and filled with clothes that you will not want because they are old and may not be in great condition.

However I would encourage everyone to have a look in the charity shops as I think you will be surprised...I never used to like shopping in them because I didn't like the thought of wearing someone else's clothes. But now I'm totally over that and once you washed the items you have brought they are perfectly fine to wear.  

I think you need to be in the right mood to go shopping in charity shops, because you will need to hunt around before you find something that you like. My latest charity shop purchase is this knit jumper above, which is perfect for Spring/Summer because it's light pink. It will keep me warm on those colder days because lets face it in the UK we do not always have super warm days during the these months.

I fell in love with this jumper as soon as I set my eyes on it, I love the drape of it and think it looks so much more interesting compared to your standard plain jumper. I've teamed this with blue jeans, my glittery bag that I picked up for the festive season but I think I'll also get lots of wear out of it this Spring/Summer because it goes so well with light colours. And my favourite shoes at the moment, I'm obsessed with metallic colours.

I picked up this jumper for £5 in a charity shop in Bath, the tag is cut out so I'm unaware of where it is originally from. However it looks like an item from Whistles or French Connection.

 There are three great reasons to shop in charity shops:

1. The money you spend will go towards a great cause.

2. You will pick up some bargains.

3. What you buy is likely not to be in the shops anymore, so you will not see every other girl wearing it.

I hope you liked this post and it has encouraged you to go and have a look in the charity shops!

  1. I always think it's a bit like going into Primark at peak time when it's a mess, or TK Maxx. You have to be in the right frame of mind to go rummaging and you might not find anything.

    My parent's are great at this and they get some real bargains! I need to give it a try.
