I love charity shops. I love the unexpected element but most of all I love how things find new owners and new uses.
I am off for my annual break to France and Belgium soon and when it rains over there it can really rain so I wanted a waterproof jacket; thing is they are expensive and unflattering and yesterday when I was in Millets trying jackets on I just couldn’t bring myself to buy one, so this morning when Stella and popped into our local village I said rather optimistically I wanted to find one in a charity shop.
I did! And what’s more it only cost me £1.50. It is unflattering and I think at the end of it’s waterproof life but it will do me for my break and possibly even some rainy day dog walking.
But that wasn’t all, I found a perfect corduroy jacket for autumn in a lovely donkey brown (£4.50 Anna Shultz for Debenhams) and a denim skirt (£4.00 Limited Collection for M&S)
I have so many accessories to compliment this jacket I can't wait for the cooler weather:)
I love the versatility of a good denim skirt....
