Weddings and Charity Shops: Match Made in Heaven

Can you wear something from a charity shop to a wedding? The answer is yes. As long as when people say ‘ooooh great dress, where’s it from’ (which they did, no modesty spared in this post) you say ‘oh it’s vintage’. Well, it is isn’t it? It’s not new, I know that much. So here’s what I wore to my beautiful friend’s wedding: a little number plucked from a humble Clapham High Street charity shop. Who said all the best charros are in Richmond?

PS. It was November and an autumnal theme, so I managed to get away with the black.

Today I’m Wearing…. A Thrifted Wonder

I haven’t tended to do many personal style posts before, as I think I just felt a bit shy…. Well, I’ll tell you who isn’t shy – THIS BLOODY SKIRT. She has been out and about with me everywhere since I bought her 2 weeks ago in a charity shop in Cornwall… for £3.50!! THREE POUNDS FIFTY.


Sure, it may prevent me from breathing sufficiently (that top button does not cater for a thick waist), but who needs breathing when you’ve got a £3.50 on-trend midi-skirt at your disposal? Not me!
