The Benefits of Being Thrifty

I’ve always been a bargain hunter. Growing up, my life was filled with early Sunday mornings spent down our local car boot sale.

Haul-e-lujah! #04 | An assortment of knick-knacks I definitely definitely (don’t) need

Now, now. I definitely have a use for everything here, I promise (kind of).

Haul-e-lujah! #03 | This punchy orange turtleneck jumper dress and these Cruella Devillesque ankle boots got me bad

I learnt a trick recently on how to return home with a good haul under your arm. We’ve all been there– buying something we couldn’t wear now, but could wear one day.

Outfit #04 | Chanelling Marla Singer with this fabulous fluffy coat

Alright alright, I’ll admit it! My Colorplan bag isn’t strictly charity-bought, but I can tell you– it was free!

Haul-e-lujah! #02 | A vintage kilo sale is a great opportunity to snap up rare items on the cheap

This weekend I went to my first ever Vintage Kilo Sale. Kilo sales are pretty self explanatory– fill up your bag with lots of stuff, then get it weighed at the end.

[Guest Feature] Outfit #03 | Georgina shares her favourite outfit and what got her into thrifting

This week’s Guest Feature is from freelance sign painter (nope, not like road signs!) and avid charity shopper Georgina Tozer.

Outfit #02 | A bountiful assortment of all things autumn, and all things fabulous

A gorgeous morning calls for a gorgeous autumn outfit. I found these boots in a Scope charity shop over a year ago.

Haul-e-lujah! #01 | A pit stop in Plymouth has massive gains when you use some imagination

The best charity shops (in my experience) are the ones in the not-so-hip areas. I’m talkin’ villages, small towns, and the outskirts of big cities.

Outfit #01 | One oversized jumper/waistcoat and plenty of stripes

Darling devotchkas and droogs, it’s time for my first Outfit article! And what better day to wear it, than to meet my friend Phil for a work date and a bite to eat in Bristol.
