Charity Shop Chic

I’ve had a bit of a gold-rush this week with my buys from my local Oxfam shop.  It’s the best place for getting quality brands at a bargain.

First up is this burnout velvet scarf from John Lewis.  It is silver-grey and black with a floral blossom design and is a great winter accessory, especially for formal events! It was an absolute steal at £1.49.

Second is this gold sequinned scarf from Laura Ashley.  It is glitzy without being over-the-top bling, and I’m thinking of wearing it as a belt with the purple velvet dress from Jigsaw that I wrote about recently.  I got this for a snip at £3.99.

Saving the best ‘til last, and the favourite purchase of the lot is this vintage moss-green acrylic knit cardie from Jaeger.  I’m not entirely sure from which decade this hails, but looking at the label its likely to be from the 1970s or 1980s.   This cute knit is so evocative of that geek-chic thing that is in right now, and paired with my new owl print dress by Louche at JOY, makes me feel like a librarian!  Adding some block-colour tights in burnt hues and brown leather mary-janes completes the look.  And for £8.99, this find was a treasure.
