Barnardo’s Outfit Challenge

Hi! I’m Miss Eleanor May, and I was recently set the Outfit Challenge by Barnardo’s Retail team to find an outfit in one of their shops whilst spending as little as possible!

One of my favourite Barnardo’s shops is located in Plymouth, Devon, and I try to visit whenever I’m in the city. This particular shop is a 99p shop and there is always an incredible array of clothes, accessories, toys and homewares for sale.

With my challenge in mind, I got the chance to visit and was delighted to find a beautiful dragonfly dress which was originally £26 from Next and still had the tags attached – and you guessed it, it was only 99p! I absolutely fell in love with this dress as it fits beautifully and is perfect for wearing all year round, layering up in the colder months.

I matched this with a pair of Maryjane shoes which I bought in Barnardo’s charity shop some time ago and added my own belt. The whole cost of my outfit? £1.98 – including the shoes that I bought previously!
