Our Autumn Edit focuses on the classic concept of a ‘capsule wardrobe’. It highlights that being resourceful with just a few essential items, can see you through the winter, without compromising on style.
April here! I’m back with another monthly blog for The-Thrift! This time, it’s all about getting creative and personalising your pre-loved finds. So, let’s get right to it!
Denim finds are my favourite to get creative with. It’s so easy to jazz up old denim with a quick DIY fix, and from the comfort of your own home.
I got these Mom jeans in my local Barnardo’s in Brixton a couple of months ago – a bargain at just £7.99! They fit perfectly but I wanted to make them unique. I knew they would look great distressed and decided to give it a go myself. Here’s how I did it. Read More »
Hello Thrift followers! In my last blog, I explained how my husband and I managed to create our own vintage inspired wedding for a fraction of the cost of your typical wedding. Part of this involved scouring charity shops for pre-loved wedding attire and decorations.
Even if you’re not planning on tying the knot yourself, you may have received a pretty little invitation through your door inviting you to share someone’s special day.
Cue the mad dash to find an outfit. My first stop? The local charity shops!
There’s a method to choosing a wedding outfit. Firstly, is there a theme? Pinterest is your best friend here. It helps you find colours and textures that fit the theme and leaves you loaded with inspiration when you hit the shops. Luckily, when I had the pleasure of attending my sister in law’s wedding, there weren’t many ‘rules’ and so I was free to pick an outfit which felt like ‘me’!
April’s the name and charity shopping is my game. I’m a self-confessed charity shopping shopaholic!
I’m so excited to been given the opportunity to guest blog monthly on The-Thrift, courtesy of the fabulous Barnardo’s Retail.
I will be blogging at the end of every month, sharing my Barnardo’s hauls, outfit finds for under £10’s, Q&A’s, seasonal outfits, customising charity shop wear and much more!!
All outfits you will see and read about have been purchased by me from different Barnardo’s shops. I’m kicking off my first blog with one my favourite January buys, keep scrolling to see how I style it.
First off we have one of my current favourite outfits! Everything I am wearing (apart from the distressed tights) I purchased from my local Barnardo’s!

New Year’s Eve is the perfect excuse to embrace your love for all things glittery. Kick off the festivities with a sparkling sequin dress that will make an impact and light up the dance floor.
Party season is mid flow and you’re inundated with invitations to parties and Christmas catch up drinks with old friends. If you’re lacking in inspiration for your festive looks this week – we’ve got you covered!
With the help of Barnardo’s fashion and Love Your Clothes London we’ve pulled together a Christmas season look book to give you some pointers. No matter what the scenario, we’ve got the perfect look!
Meeting the girls for after work Christmas drinks?
Christmas is round the corner and we don’t know about you but we are ready to dial the seasonal vibes right up. Why not try running a festive red theme through your look?
As Christmas party invites begin to pile up, it’s the perfect time to invest in some red pieces for your wardrobe. Red is a flexible colour that can work for any event, from casual drinks with office friends to get-togethers with the family.
Think rich shades of crimson and deep wine hues that will add a touch of class to any outfit – and don’t be afraid to overload on the glitter and sequins this season. If you’re worried about looking too much like a festive bauble, tone down the outfit by adding a simple velvet clutch bag or wrap around a faux fur collar.
