Oxfam is my dressing up box

This vintage dress made me think of Maid Marion in Robin Hood Prince of Thieves. It is quite costume but I think I would find somewhere to wear it! I think it has a Dolce and Gabbana ‘Baroque Romanticism’ feel to it. I think take up the hem and it has D&G written all over it.

I loved this vintage 1970’s dress. Priced at £8.00 it would be great for festivals!

So I here is more of the pieces that I found in Oxfam yesterday. Oxfam is one of my favorite charity shops. One reason is they are always fully stocked. They have a fast turn over of sales so every week there are new items to be found. They always have lots of interesting vintage pieces which are actually sectioned off for those shoppers who hate to search for the good stuff. They also stocks some really interesting pieces from around the world. I have found hand made beaded bags from India, leather shoes from Morocco and hand printed scarfs from Africa. Oxfam shops are dotted around the country so it is likely that there is one near you. Oxfam’s development work actually reaches over 90 countries so they are doing good stuff for millions of people around the world. Shopping in Oxfam is a colourful and cultural experience and I always find some amazing stuff.

    I love Oxfam too. They have some fab bits and pieces in Edinburgh. They are one of the charities that have got second hand shopping down pat.
