I’m super excited to be blogging my first fashion post here at Secret Diary of a Scavenger.
I can’t believe I haven’t shared anything like this before, especially because fashion is a huge part of my identity.
I’m one of these people who literally wears their personality. From bold animal prints to self-bleached denim, I don’t shy away from pattern, colour or brashness.
But I’m not one of these people who blows their wages every weekend on bland, over priced items in the high street shops. I prefer to go thrifting.
This activity, as you might have guessed, links up with my passion for scavenging. I like nothing better than rummaging around in my local charity shops for unique items at fair prices. And as I’m not bad with the sewing machine, I can alter anything that I like to fit me.
Anyway, sorry to waffle. Here are my most recent purchases from my local good will.
Just in time for summer, I snapped up this cute bow print jumpe and up-cycled denim shorts combo:
|Shorts: £3.99, Jumper: £2.99|
I’m absolutely in love with the full-length chunky zip on these shorts!
My second find was this up-cycled strapless a-line shirt dress in a candy stripe
|Shirt Dress £4.99|
My third and final find of the day is this beautiful bow print play suit, originally from H&M.
It’s a little big but it will only need some simple alterations.
Altogether, I’ve spent around £16 on three decent outfits for summer. You’ll be hard pushed to buy at least one quality item from a high street store these days.
