A little thrifting.

As you’ll know if you’re a frequent reader of Paige of Fashion, I’m obsessed with all things vintage when it comes to fashion. I’ve found over the years whilst shopping for such vintage pieces that the best place to find them at reasonable prices is in charity shops. Most people for some reason, which frankly I can’t understand, are squeamish when it comes to charity shops. It’s true that it’s not a simple and easy as shopping in Newlook or Topshop, but that’s part of the fun.  Searching the rails for something just right is what makes thrifting so amazing. I mean, don’t get me wrong I love high-street shops, but every now and then it’s nice to get something really unique at such small prices. Plus the proceeds go to good causes so really, it’s guilt free shopping!

Today I popped down to my local charity shop and bought myself a carpet fabric purse lined with real leather for 95p and a real leather patch bag for £3.50. Seriously cheap, yet seriously cute and vintage.

Also I think I owe you all a picture of the camo jacket I mentioned in a previous post.

I'm sure I'll post some more of my charity shop finds in the days to come!
Thanks for reading guys,
