‘I found it in a charity shop’ is a phrase I must say a hundred times a week. My wardrobe is almost entirely pre-loved – once you’ve thrifted a pair of Versace sandals for £4.99, it’s hard to go back to the high street.
I’m a Kid of The 90s. I spent my childhood wearing glittery flares, butterfly hair-clips, Claire’s Accessories chokers and Tammy Girl combat trousers. Today fast fashion is awash with 90s nostalgia – but if it’s authentic 90s brands you’re after then look no further than the lime green doors of Barnardo’s. Like most charity shops, Barnardo’s is a time capsule for 90s clothing. Shelves stacked high with diamanté mini handbags, baby pink tube tops and spice girl worthy platforms.

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.
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!
