5. I give you one of my favourite plain black oversized t-shirts which I picked up in the men’s section at my local Barnardo’s. This Tee is perfect to dress up or down. I usually style it with a distressed pair of tights, my trusty Dr Martens and a black leather jacket for that grunge finish.

Shoes – A Girls Best Friend By April

Hi guys,

It’s April here, back with another monthly blog. In this instalment, I will be sharing my favourite shoe finds from Barnardo’s – because let’s face it – a girl can never have enough pairs!

I’m not your typical girly girl. My shoe collection is not full of sky-high heels – that’s way out of my comfort zone! I’ll let you in on a secret…. I’ve only ever worn high heels once! Heels and I are therefore a disaster waiting to happen!

Keep scrolling for a sneak peek into my growing shoe collection.

Ally’s Spring/Summer 16 Thrifty Trend Report!

Hello, my names Ally and I’m super excited to be a guest blogger for The-Thrift today!

I’ve recently started writing about fashion, lifestyle, beauty and a little bit of travel on my own blog: Ally’s Style.

I’m an aspiring womenswear designer and I am a massive fan of charity shopping, bargain hunting, and sourcing genuine vintage clothing from anywhere and everywhere at the best price!

The best thing about thrift shopping and charity shopping in stores such as Barnardo’s, is finding the current catwalk trends at a fraction of the price!!!

So, here are a few S/S 16 trends and outfits I have created using pieces I have thrifted.

Enjoy!
