Charity Shopping at Barnardo’s

Barnardo’s is a charity shop that is very dear to my heart. It was the inspiration to start a pre-loved account on Instagram, dedicated to my love of charity shopping for pretty much everything in life! In fact, at the time of writing this, I have my newly adopted cat ‘Rainbow’ at my side, grooming herself, which is a comforting sign that she is getting less nervous in her new home. Whilst Rainbow was adopted via the RSPCA (another fantastic charity and shop), Barnardo’s has an equally worthy aim: to help vulnerable children in need.

Fashion Revolution Week – Soph’s Love Story

Fashion Revolution Week Day 4 is here!

Next up in our Fashion Love Stories series is the gorgeous Soph, effortlessly stylish and an absolute charity shop queen. With so many beautiful pre-loved pieces to chose from, check out just one of her clothes love stories below.

“The jacket and skirt are items that I had looked around for, for so long, as they originally sold out on ASOS and Nasty Gal. The skirt was £90 on ASOS but I managed to get my hands on it for £15 on a for sale site – and it was brand new with tags. The Nasty Gal star jacket, I picked up for £5! The outfit gives me major Debbie Harry vibes, and as she’s one of my forever style icons, I’ll always take inspiration from her.

When looking around at the charity shops, my main tips are to look around in all sections, even the men’s! I’ve bought small jackets before from the men’s section that are amazing and would’ve cost a fortune in shops. I’d also say, don’t just limit yourself to your own size, look around in all size sections as every brand fits differently, and especially for vintage pieces – the sizing has changed so much on women’s clothing in particular over the decades, labels won’t always be correct.”

These are the kind of love stories we love to hear and see, so why not get involved and tell you own? Photograph it, film it, write about it! Get involved this Fashion Revolution week and share your love story.
