My Vintage Finds By Era-Go-Again

Hi, I’m Lucy, lover of all things vintage, retro and on a budget. You can find me blogging over on Era-Go-Again!

As a vintage blogger I look out for pieces from the 40’s and 50’s. I also love picking up pieces that I can incorporate with my vintage bits for a perfect everyday look. True vintage clothing is an expensive hobby but one that I love. You can imagine my excitement when I come across beautiful vintage pieces in my local charity shops. Keep scrolling to see what I picked up at my local Barnardo’s.

Rock 1

Dress £5.99, belt and shoes my own.

When I spotted this dress at the Crouch End branch of Barnardo’s it ticked all the boxes – cotton, floral and tea dress style. It’s from ‘The Collection’ at Debenhams and is most likely from the 1990’s – I had to have it!

I instantly fell in love with the print and colours of this dress and what a steal it was at just £5.99! Its fresh green and hint of yellow is perfect for Spring. I teamed the dress up with these pretty vintage carved earrings that tie in perfectly with the print.

With the weather still a little chilly, I like to be able to throw on a cardigan. I spied this one, originally from New Look. It is the perfect shade and matches the dress. I love how the Crouch End store is colour coordinated as it makes outfit building so easy.

Cardigan £3.99

When writing blog posts I always try to incorporate as many charity shop pieces as I can. Working for a charity myself, I recognise how important the support is to these shops and the wider impact on the people it helps – in this case, the UK’s most vulnerable children, young people and families.

I hope you have enjoyed this blog post, if you want see more vintage inspired charity shops finds you can find me on Instagram.
