I always used to find myself wandering around charity shops finding absolute gems.
There’s something so satisfying about finding that one item of clothing that is 1) a great brand 2) In perfect condition, and 3) The best part is, you get the clothing for less than half the price. (Most of the time!)
I hadn’t been on a good charity shopping spree in so long, so I decided it was time and I found some absolute gems. So in this post I am going to show you what I found and how I have styled these items.
The first item I purchased was this dungaree dress, which is originally from Boohoo and I got it for only £8.99! The dress is still in perfect condition.
Dunagree dresses are a must-have for summer and I’ve said this in a previous post but dungaree dresses are not only perfect for summer but they are great for winter, styled with a chunky jumper, a pair of tights and a chunky pair of boots.
I also picked up this yellow top, originally from Hollister. This is also still in perfect condition. This top only cost me £3.50 which is an absolute bargain for a Hollister item of clothing. I love the style of this, especially around the chest area.
I styled the top and dungarees together with a pair of fishnet tights, bulky boots and adorable sunflower clips.
I love the summer vibes this outfit is giving me.
The next item I picked up was this pencil skirt, originally from Primark.
This is just a standard black pencil skirt, which is an essential for any wardrobe. They can be styled in so many ways – Dress this up for a smart outfit or style this with a pair of Dr Martens and band tee for a more casual look. Pencil skirts are so versatile! This only cost me £3.99.
I decided to style this skirt with a band t-shirt and a pair of black heels for a classier, yet alternative look. This outfit would look great to go out to dinner or for cocktails.
The next item I picked up is actually one of my favourites from the shopping trip and this item is a pair of Topshop Joni jeans in this lovely maroon/burgundy colour.
Would you believe these jeans were only £1.99!! What an absolute steal, I had to pick them up. I’m a huge lover of Topshop Joni jeans.
The charity shop I purchased these from had so many pairs of Topshop jeans, and most of them still had the original tags on them! I would have picked up more, but I do have far too many jeans.
I also picked up this sheer black oversized shirt which is also from Topshop. There is a small rip near the buttons, but you can barely see this.
This only cost me £2.24 and would look great styled over a dress or jeans and a top. I may even purchase some studs and add them to the collar to make this top that little bit ‘extra.’ I love sprucing up my clothes like this.
I styled the jeans and top together with this fishnet top from PrettyLittleThing. I love how the shirt adds a final touch to this outfit.
The last item I picked up are these trousers from Next. They cost me £4.49.
I had a look in mind when I picked up these trousers in the charity shop, however when I got home I really regret picking them up…but I gave them the benefit of the doubt and after styling them I absolutely fell in love with them! I love the style of these trousers!
They don’t look as good on the hanger as they do actually on, but trust me, when you see the outfit I have put together you will see what I mean.
I decided to style these trousers with an oversized blazer, a black boob tube and my thick, chunky Dr Martens. I also added a belt to add that extra something to the outfit. A chained belt would look amazing with this outfit! I wish I had one for this look.
I am absolutely in love with these trousers and am so glad I followed my instinct and picked them up!
I will be visiting the charity shops again very soon as I love styling these clothes.
