You can’t beat a classic button-down shirt but the fashion favourite has been given a cool update. Deconstructed designs give the smart style an unexpected twist. We are girl crushing over this shirt Hannah picked up at her local Barnardo’s, tied at the waist for a fun and feminine feel.

All The Leaves Are Brown

You can imagine my excitement when an email landed in my inbox from Barnardo’s, inviting me to guest blog for The-Thrift. And then the doubts crept in…I don’t even have a blog…what topic shall I choose…will people even find me interesting? Then I decided to get cracking, be creative, and try my hand at blogging! With hibernation weather just around the corner and onesie season creeping up,  plus the fact I talk to myself all the time, I figured, why not get my thoughts down on here and share some of my favourite pieces!

As a clothes-enthusiast who likes things of yesteryear and anything vintage, I started my Instagram at the start of this year. I share my charity shop finds and vintage items from the shops, fairs and markets I’ve been to, with a bit of outfit styling thrown in for good measure.

My Barnardo’s Find by Justina

Hello!

I’m Justina, I was recently asked if I would like to guest blog for The-Thrift, how could I possibly  say no? I am a bit of an environmentalist, and like to craft and try new things, so I was excited to be asked to take part in the Barnardo’s style challenge.

My Vintage Barnardo’s Visit by Natasha

Hello lovelies and Happy charity Tuesday! Hope you have all had an awesome week.

Last week, I popped into the Barnardo’s vintage store for their Autumn/Winter range preview event. I’ve been in this store once before and I instantly fell in love with the atmosphere of the shop, so much so I wanted to photograph it and write a blog post featuring it. Their stock ranges from vintage clothing, to childrenswear, houseware and much more.

Autumn Tones by Harriet

Hello, Autumn!

As we start to wave goodbye to the summer months and welcome autumn, we can look forward to warm coats and hot chocolate, snuggly scarves and nights in, carving pumpkins and thinking about the festive season.

If you read my blog or follow me on Instagram, you will know that I am somewhat of a charity shop fiend. I can’t help it. It’s one of my favourite things to do and certainly a weekly ritual of mine.

So as the seasons begin to change and the summer skirts and dresses are carefully put away for another year, it’s time to start thinking about those rich, autumnal tones. Looking to the catwalks for inspiration and scouring Pinterest for enviable street styles to master.
