70’s Style Chic

Over the last couple of years, charity shopping has really started to spike. Vintage and pre-loved pieces are trending all over Instagram and retro is yet again back in fashion. As a Londoner, I am only a stone’s throw away from the vintage shops that dominate Brick Lane. While most people flock to these vintage spots for their retro outfits, charity shops can sometimes be overlooked. They offer a great avenue to find amazing pieces at a fraction of the price, as well as rehoming lovely pre-loved items.

My wardrobe is dominated by colour, and pieces with a 70’s vibe. With that in mind, I have pieced together two 70’s style looks, with pre-loved item’s from Barnardo’s and Traid, which I picked up on a recent charity shopping spree in Brixton.

Re-discovering Thrifting

I started my Instagram account a few years ago to go compliment my YouTube channel, where I made videos about vintage fashion, up-cycling, and re-working clothes.

Eventually, I stopped making videos and just focused on posting Instagram pictures. Working in fast fashion, I’m constantly shopping at the big stores and online. This is great, but I have neglected my love for thrifting and charity shopping.

Recently I took a trip to my local Barnardo’s and picked up a few bits. I’ve decided to create a little lookbook to show that you don’t have to spend a lot to create great outfits. There is also the added bonus of supporting a charity – double feel good factor!
