Today I decided to have a quick look through some of the charity shops we have in the city as I needed a little pick-me up through all the studying but didn’t want to spend much. I was amazed by how much I found so thought I would share some of my purchases!
Firstly I went into Scope, which is a charity supporting disabled people and those suffering with Cerebral Palsy, which had a really lovely atmosphere and a wide range of clothes. My usual impression of a charity shop is mean old ladies and lots of old videos, however Scope really was fantastic! I promise to post a photograph each time I wear these items as showing them on the hanger obviously does not do the dresses justice!

1) Dress only £4.75! Yet another “going out” dress to add to my mini collection and for such a good price. I would probably usually spend £20.00 on this item!

2) I was so happy with this dress as it fits me so well and I saw it in Debenhams the week before for £30.00! I managed to get this one for £6.00!

3) A very casual cardigan however this purchase was slightly ironic, as only the day before I decided I needed a new blue one and was planning on buying a £10.00 one from H&M. Instead I got this one for £4.00 and it is much better quality and very soft! This is also my favourite colour to wear as the blue really suits me!

4) These shoes were brilliant as they are from Faith, which usually sells shoes for up to £50.00! Lovely pair of new heels for £6.00!
It turned out to be such a brilliant day getting a cheap pick me up, having some new outfits for nights out, and knowing that I was able to help others in the process!
Have you ever found any really good charity shop finds or have any secret tips for finding good items?
Lots of Love
