My second hand, charity shopped wardrobe.

Most of my wardrobe is filled with second hand clothes, here are some of my recent charity shop outfits,

I rediscovered this fabulous seventies crochet shawl in a box when we moved.  We lived in the same house until I was 27 and we had lovely lady neighbours on each side, Aunty Betsy and Aunty Rose (they both had husbands, Uncle John and Uncle Bill, who sadly died years ago).   Aunty Rose had a fabulous vegetable garden (she still does, she's still digging aged 90 odd!) and Aunty Betsy had a wonderful vintage wardrobe.  I'm lucky to have inherited some of her lovely things over the years, this is one of them.  Look at that fringe, it makes me feel giddy!

This second hand cardigan has just the right amount of softness and I wear it loads.  
99p plus postage, Ebay.

This was from a tiny charity shop that has a pound rail, my favourite!  I love mustard at the moment and this top was originally from Next.  I'm going to chop that annoying elasticised waist off though!
£1, charity shop.

These lovely brown T-bar shoes looked like they hadn't been worn.  The brand is 'ecco', who make exactly the kind of granny shoes I favour for my wide, high-arched little feet.  
£3.99, charity shop.

  1. I am so into mustard at the moment too and have some charity finds, but I am terrible of sharing them on my blog. Must right that wrong. I am also a fan of ecco shoes, probably for the same reason as you.

    1. I love mustard too, we've painted our hall wall mustard, so if I wear that t shirt and stand in front of the wall I disappear! :D

  5. Such a beautiful shawl! Makes me want to pick up the hook and make one but it'd never be as nice!
    I love the shoes too. I always thought Ecco was a bit too old lady but seeing them on your feet they look really funky! Perhaps my wide feet would like some too?!

    1. Oh I'm sure you could make a similar shawl, it's a granny triangle by the looks of it, it's the fringe that makes it lovely!

      And the ecco shoes are soo comfy! Weirdly, I usually prefer shoes that look like they belong to grannies, but these ones are quite cool looking!
