Hello to anyone reading this article! I’m Philippa from @thriftedphil over on Instagram and I thought I’d put together a little article styling a recent Barnardo’s find and talking all about why I am so obsessed with charity shopping.
Here, I bring you my top 5 tips for shopping all things charity and show you how to flex that charity shop muscle!
April’s the name and charity shopping is my game. I’m from South West London and I am a proud charity shop junkie!
I would describe my style as 80’s grunge but with my own modern edge. I’ve never followed high street trends or gone into high street stores – I am a proud lover of charity shops because I love one off pieces. I have no shame in purchasing from a charity shop – you can get so many fabulous items for a small price AND proceeds always go to a good cause. I would love to break the stigma that sometimes surrounds charity shops. It’s so easy to piece an outfit together and it’s amazing what you can find or what you can jazz up yourself. I’m very into having my own unique style. I’m very fond of the colour black, so I love exploring the different shades of black, to show people that black is not just a depressing colour.
