Our top #mybarnardosfind picks from last week

The Barnardo’s Retail team share their top picks from this week’s #mybarnardosfind uploads on Instagram!

Tassels, fringing – nothing says ‘Seventies’ quite like them, and that’s exactly what the lovely @annajanehoughton thought when she spotted her tan fringed shoulder bag in her local Barnardo’s store.

The bag compliments Anna’s boho style perfectly, teaming her #mybarnardosfind with a paisley print blouse and denim skirt – tassel-tastic!

Taken a fancy to fringing? It’s one of the easiest trends to work into your wardrobe, so don’t be afraid to add a little tassel to your life!

Laid back style has never looked so effortless as displayed by our regular blogger for The-Thrift, Martina Davis (@essentiallginger)!

Martina keeps warm in this season’s chicest cover up – a belted camel coat, teamed with a soft grey knit, leggings and trainers.

Oh, did we mention that both the coat and jumper were picked up in Martina’s local Barnardo’s!

Who says you need to shop the high-street to get the latest trends? 

Did you know geek is the new chic? Yes that’s right, it’s time to dust off those loafers and stick on your oversized specs! So be quirky and stand out, just like Rebecca has done in our next #mybarnardosfind entry.

Rebecca, @redisthrifty, teams a floral blouse with a dusty pink knitted waistcoat; all found in our Kilmarnock store  and coming to a total of £5 for both pieces. Affordable fashion at its finest!

Fancy having a go at creating your own geek chic style? Think pussy-bow blouses, square-rimmed glasses and knitted vests, or simply head over to our recent geek chic blog for inspiration.

As we look towards the start of spring fashions (we’re frantically counting down the days!) a single, timeless classic is sure to enter everyone’s minds – FLORALS!

So we were very happy to see @thevelvetepidemic’s recent Barnardo’s purchase – a soft pastel pink skirt teamed with a matching shirt and floral cardigan.

To toughen the look @thevelvetepidemic has accessorised with dark lipstick and black thick tights, creating a new romantic feel to this look which we love!
