So for the time being, it seems as though at least one item per OOTD will be listed as "thrifted". I estimate that a third of my wardrobe is made up of charity shop bought clothes which means it's inevitable really. Some people would be embarrassed by that. Me, I'm not easily embarrassed. I see no shame in buying gorgeous clothes with an equally gorgeous price tag.
My most recent thrifting success came in the form of a woven, tartan dress originally from Zara and somewhat reminiscent of Celine's AW13 collection. It looks an awful lot like those huge plastic shopping bags you see people take to Poundland or discount shops. It doesn't sound it, but that is a complement. The best thing is, in all of its Zara meets Celine glory, it cost me a grand total of £15. After doing some research online (any true thrifter knows that finding out how much you saved is one of the best parts) I discovered that on eBay the dresses are going for between £50 and £80! If there's one thing that makes me smile in this world, it's that. Even if I haven't found the forest of money just yet.
