Vintage Yves Saint Laurent Necklace £130

I feel lucky! I was surfing the net looking for other like minded people like moi and I discovered the Designer Jumble Sale. I am always on the hunt for a bargain so I took my curious self off to Holborn straight away. Designer Jumble Sale is a pop up shop set up by a lovely lady called Abigal. She sells designer clothing at a snippet of the price and donates her profits to charity. She sells clothing and accessories, from Chloe to McQueen, or Sonia Rykiel to Maxmara. Some pieces are new, some second hand, some vintage. She is extremely passionate about what she is doing which makes shopping there an absolute pleasure. Every piece that I asked about she knew the designer or it’s origin. All of the staff were helpful and friendly and you can shop with ease as the place is well stocked but not cluttered or smelly. They will even sell you the furniture if you like it! Please don’t all rush down there and nick all my bargains! I should really keep this one to myself but since it’s for charity… These were some of my favorite pieces.

Another day another Oxfam goodie! I think that Oxfam is fast becoming my favorite charity shop yet. I find a weird and wonderful addition to my already too huge collection of gear every time I go in one. I found this quilted parrot shopping bag and I couldn’t resist. I am always looking for unusual bags that stand out. This bag was only £5.00 and its really lightweight, i’m thinking it will also work as a beach bag too! I also thought I should highlight this is the beaded jacket that I found that I uploaded in an earlier post ‘I found a beaded jacket’, this is how I have styled it, but it is so versatile. If you are ever out and you see something beaded in a charity shop I would say always pick it up because they are classic pieces that stand the test of time. Most of this outfit is charity shop bought.

So the handbag is not to most tastes but I don’t care. It was again one of those moments that I had when my shopping partner said “are you really going to use that?” To which I replied “erm yes why?” She said it’s naff! So I got it…

I do like something that’s a bit weird or ‘tongue in cheek’. Which means this bag was meant to be bought by me who will cherish it’s naffness until it falls apart. Which will probably quite soon as there is not exactly the workmanship of a Mulberry involved in this creation.

Lets be different!
