One sunny day in June, I decided to spend an afternoon in local village- Barnt Green, in Worcestershire. I was there to sample the local coffee shops and laze about in the sun (my usual) but on seeing a branch of the Acorns charity shop, I went in. I didn’t expect to find anything in a small charity shop in a sleepy village. I couldn’t have been more wrong: I emerged into the sunlight 10 minutes later with a strapless white floral jumpsuit, having paid £7.50 for it.
Three weeks later I paired in with some silver heels bought at a vintage shop in Madrid years ago for drinks at the Grand Hotel in Birmingham
Here’s the charity shop and price label:
What I love about this:
The money went to charity
I saved on pollution, greenhouse gas emissions and clothes going to landfill by shopping secondhand
I probably wouldn’t have paid full price for this jumpsuit as it’s a bit of a daring look, but I was very happy to spend £7.50 on it. It was so fun telling my friends who complimented my outfit that I’d got it for under a tenner in a charity shop.
Next time you want a new look for a night out, try a charity shop. You never know!
