A few good things found! 

1 The vintage Babour body warmer £15 

2 The Topshop crochet jumper £3.99

3 The androgynous shirt £2.99

4 Ethnic necklace £2.00

A good charity shop shopping day. I went off with my lovely cousin and part time photography assistant to the charity shops in Epping Forest. This is a great place to shop for second hand goods as the area is full of affluent types that can afford to give their old stuff to charity shops for us mere mortals to go and hunt down. I actually found the Barbour body warmer in the men’s section. I often look in the men’s as that  well as ladies garments as sometimes they are incorrectly marked. Or I also wear men’s clothes if they fit and work for the look that I am trying to create. Sometimes a pair of men’s baggy jeans with some super high heels and a crisp white shirt will do the trick! (over use of the word men’s… sorry I couldn’t think of an alternative this late in the evening) I am going all androgynous!

Anyway male or female clothing… who cares??? I must do a little shout out to all the lovely ladies in The British Heart Foundation shop, they put up with us generally getting in the way, taking lots of photo’s and filling the changing room with everything we get get our mits on.

More fabulous goodies to come!

    Great finds! I completely agree with you about frequenting affluent areas. Although they rotate stock, the best stuff often gets snapped up quickly, and that’s usually in the place it was donated. I do the same here in Aberdeen. I still lament the day I didn’t buy a Tod’s handbag for £18 in Cults because I was a bit strapped for cash!
