Charity Shop Snob.





Shirt - Charity Shop
Shorts - Ebay
Belt - Vintage

I love it when I wear an outfit that is completely second hand and not bought from chain stores. I love it so much that it actually makes me feel a tad smug. Now, there's a couple reasons for my smugness, firstly because I will have paid next to nothing and secondly because I know I will be the only person donning such an outfit whilst prancing about my lousy village. Lets face it you wouldn't be able to miss me in this dreamy sunset tie dye perfection of a shirt. I picked it up in Canterbury from a charity shop for peanuts, and to top it all off it came with a matching skirt. The skirt is on the big side but I'll find a way to wear it I'm sure. 

Admittedly these are not recent photos as I am currently away from home. I haven't had the chance to take outfit pics which is annoying cos there have been some crackers, let me tell ya. I'll have to recreate them when I get home in a couple days. 

On another note, I've been having a lovely time down at my boyfriends watching many a film and eating so much bad food. Does anyone else find they eat worse with their significant other? We had a day out in London, too, spending all day in the Natural History Museum. I felt like such a kid running around the dinosaur section, if you read this post you'll know my love for a good fossil. I also went to see The Guardians of the Galaxy at the cinema on Friday and it was so good. Although the film is aimed at kids, me and my boyfriend thoroughly enjoyed it even if there were one too many cliches. But holy crap isn't the cinema expensive? I guess that's why I don't go too often. 



Because y'all should go see it.

  4. I love a good charity shop find, I used to only shop in them when I was a college student! You've reminded me that I must get back into it, I used to love rifling through the rails to find a gem for a few quid. It can make your style so unique also, and it's the best feeling when someone asks where something is from and you can say, 'charity shop!'

    1. Urgh, I was the same a couple years back but since having a more disposable income I've succumbed to the chain stores. Need to get back to the charity shops!

  7. You look amazing! I almost can't believe that those shorts are second hand, they fit you so beautifully. And your top is just gorgeous :) I'm a second hand snob too, if I'm wearing something from a charity shop / car boot and someone compliments me I'll be like "IT WAS TWO POUNDS!!" I also totally get the eating badly with your significant other thign, that happens to me a lot xx

  11. Since volunteering for oxfam I don't enjoy shopping in the normal high st store as much as I did,as you don't get the same buzz, as when you find an item that no one else will have, with a bargain price tag!:D I to get the smugness when I'm walking out in my charity shop outfit!.
