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’!
Hi, I’m Lucy, lover of all things vintage, retro and on a budget. You can find me blogging over on Era-Go-Again!
As a vintage blogger I look out for pieces from the 40’s and 50’s. I also love picking up pieces that I can incorporate with my vintage bits for a perfect everyday look. True vintage clothing is an expensive hobby but one that I love. You can imagine my excitement when I come across beautiful vintage pieces in my local charity shops. Keep scrolling to see what I picked up at my local Barnardo’s.
Hey guys, my name’s Priyanka, I run the thrifty fashion and DIY blog, Small, Brown and Stylish and today I’m here to share how volunteering at Barnardo’s made me a thrifty fashionista.
Whilst being stylish on a shoestring budget may seem difficult, I’ve always been a big believer that you don’t have to break the bank to be fashionable. Whether you want to rock Cara Delevingne’s grungy style, channel Blake Lively’s boho vibes or simply create your own signature look, charity shops are the way to go! The holy grail of all things thrifty, charity shops have long been my ultimate haven, because not only are they full of stylish steals, but they’re also thrillingly unpredictable.
