My Stripe Challenge by Alice

Hello there. First of all, I’d like to introduce myself to you all. I’m Alice Christina, I’m from Newcastle Upon Tyne and I’m a part time charity shop assistant manager and part time fashion blogger. As somebody who works in a charity shop I’m well aware of some of the amazing things you can find in them. Over the past couple of years I’ve found myself shopping less and less on the high street and spending most of my money on pre-loved clothing. As of late I’ve focused a lot more on featuring clothing I’ve bought from charity shops, which if I’m honest, isn’t hard at all as around 90% of the clothes I buy are pre-loved now. So today I thought I’d share with you some ways I incorporate charity shop-bought clothing into my wardrobe by showing you three ways that I style stripes.

Our Top #MyBarnardosFind Picks

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!
