My Barnardo’s Find by Michaela


My name is Michaela and I write a fashion and lifestyle blog called ‘Delicate Rose’. I was lucky enough to be invited to guest post on The-Thrift by the lovely Barnardo’s team and I was more than happy to accept!


I absolutely love charity/thrift shopping! I’m always popping into Barnardo’s stores to look for a good bargain or two. I recently visited a store in the cute town of Rochester, Medway. The store was lovely and the staff were very warm and welcoming. After spending a good half hour (or more) rummaging through the rails of clothing and accessories, I settled for some printed trousers that were originally from Zara (they even had the tag still attached) and a plain top which was originally from M&S.

I really love the print on these trousers!


The trousers were £4 and the top was only £3, so I managed to buy an outfit for only £7! I couldn’t believe it then and I still can’t now. I found two items that are in amazing condition for under £10 and I can style them all year round!

Now that the weather has become colder, I can’t wait to style these trousers with a chunky knit jumper or an oversized coat. I think a trip back to Barnardo’s is due, I’ll update you on my finds!

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you enjoyed it. Also a huge thank you to Barnardo’s for inviting me to guest blog for them.
