I know how much you all like to see my second hand finds, and as I didn’t make the car boot sale last Sunday after a late-ish night on Saturday, I thought I’d show you some of this week’s spoils from my mid-week Barnardo’s charity shop visit. I’ve mentioned before that it’s my favourite charity shop as all clothes and shoes are priced at £1.99. I am so well known by the staff now that they always offer me a sneak peek of new stock in the storeroom which hasn’t yet been put into the shop!
I rarely come home with less than at least one bagful, and these are some of today’s purchases:
Gorgeous evening dresses. The one on the left is considerably nicer than my flash (it’s SOO dark today) has made it look in the pic. It’s a Debenhams cocktail dress and has a stiff net underskirt. Looks unworn. The one on the right is a gorgeous dual gold/blue colour, strapless, and is an American brand that I hadn’t heard of before.
French Connection tunic top, and Windsmoor cotton knit cardigan. The cardigan, despite being a ‘medium’, fits me perfectly, and I’m wearing it as I type this. Really pleased with it. The coat on the right is by a brand called ‘Sticky Fingers’ from their Signature range, which is sold in House of Fraser, I have discovered from a a bit of Googling. It’s beautiful quality, fully lined, and would be perfect for a summer wedding or day at the races.
Orchid print kaftan, brand new with tags, and Ann Harvey shift dress.
Brand new, unworn, Kurt Geiger sequinned shoes. For under £2! Unbelievable. Love ’em!
VERY satisfied with today’s shopping – my Barnardo’s trips are a highlight of my week!
