Long term readers of this blog will know what an advocate of thrifting I am. But it’s been a while since I posted any of my finds on here. My new set up with working hours has afforded me a bit more time to indulge one of my favourite pastimes. Namely mooching and thrifting! And I intend for it to make a welcome return as a feature of this blog (along with all my usual sewing/refashioning/DIY). So I thought I’d share some recent additions to my winter wardrobe (a mix of vintage & high street basics) as a jumping off point….
Left to Right: Vintage Dereta Linen Kimono Jacket (£3) Vintage Nude Kimono Blouse (£1.50) Vintage Jaeger Grey/White Cotton Pinstripe Shirt (£1.50) M&S Cotton Jersey Boxy Tee (£1)
Left to Right: Vintage Cheesecloth Blouse (£2) Vintage Navy Rayon Polka Shirt Dress (£2) Wallis Cotton Knitted Sweater (£3) Longline Mauve Cardigan (£2)
Left to Right: Topshop Sheer Knit Sweatshirt (£1.50) Longline Khaki Cardigan (£2.50) Next Blush Tweed Wool Cardigan (£3) Polka Chambray Shirt (£2)
The majority of these are in regular rotation in my wardrobe already and I have refashion plans for a couple. (I picked my sewing machine and overlocker up from storage this weekend! Yay!). But to put this thrifting thing into perspective and explain why it’s so awesome? That’s 12 wardrobe basics for the price of one very modestly priced garment on the high street….!!!
Thrifting….seriously…why wouldn’t you???!
