Peace, love and freedom, that my lovelies is the 70s in a nutshell…but what about the fashion?
Now this certainly isn’t a revolution to any of us…that 70s trend has been around for a few seasons now, but my prediction, by glancing through fashion magazines, is it’s not going anywhere, anytime soon! Yay!
Want to know why this is so exciting for us charity shop lovers?!
Barnardo’s is a colloquial treasure chest of 70’s jewels, just waiting to be found.
So what exactly am I looking for when I think 70’s fashion?
In list form…. (Because I’m handy like that!)
Jumpsuits and overalls – Any kind of all-in-one will work a treat, although if you really want to get this trend on point, go for a flared style or look for a large floral print. Even a more plain style of dungaree can be matched with a seventies style turtleneck or floaty blouse to get your retro vibe on!
We love a bargain here at Barnardo’s Retail, so we decided to dedicate this week’s #mybarnardosfind post to our favourite finds for under a fiver!!!!
We all love a Topshop bargain, right? So imagine our excitement this week when fashion blogger Beth spotted this denim beauty! Of course Beth snapped up this Topshop original, for a mere £5 from our Balby store in Doncaster. Could it get any better?
It’s already April, (where has the year gone?) and we’ve got another round up of our top #mybarnadosfind posts, and we’re certainly feeling the love for Spring.
Here’s our top #mybarnardosfind picks this week…
Graphic stripes have made a huge comeback for S.S 16, with designers such as Dolce and Gabbana and Missoni heavily featuring the trend within their collections this spring, and it’s easy to see why with the next two finds…
Upcoming actress and model Danielle (@danielleksharp) bought this candy-coloured dress in our Immingham store for only £2 – to say we are jealous that we didn’t get there first is an understatement.
We love the candy cane coloured stripes, waist-belt and v-neck cut. Perfect for summer!
Even models shop in charity shops!
