Kristin’s Outfit Challenge

In the spirit of #CharityTuesday I wanted to share with you the recent challenge I did for Barnardo’s, spending as little money as possible but still picking up the best outfit I could find. The thing I love most about charity shops is finding designer pieces for cheap prices and then working out how much money I have saved. So, I did my research and headed down to Barnardo’s in Marylebone for some designer bargains. Below you can see the estimated retail price and the saving.

First up, this amazing top from RODIER:

SAVING – £62.00

Now for the trousers… I have been looking for some white cigarette pants for a while, so when I came across these D&G trousers for £34.99 – I was delighted. I love the fit.

D&G TROUSERS – ESTIMATED RRP £150
BARNARDO’S PRICE – £30.00
SAVING – £120.00

As much as I think my Calvin Klein shoes go well (another charity shop find), I wanted to find some shoes to team with this outfit that were a little more comfy and that I could wear in Ibiza this summer. These brand new metallic flats did the trick.
