My favourite wear: Vintage Autumn Outfit for less than £20

I’ve harped on before how much I love second-hand and charity shops. Case and point; all of the items in my new favourite outfit came from either an online or a static second hand shop. The whole outfit cost me less than £20 and every single item is practically good as new.

 

Miusol dress

 

This is why I love second hand shopping; you just wouldn’t find these items in the shops anymore – fashion has been and gone and then come back on them a few times I suspect. But here they are, in top nick and you’d really be hard pressed to see anyone stroll down the street with a similar piece.

I love the whole idea of upcycling and I think it’s pretty easy to apply the same principle to clothing. You can look super trendy and edgy without emptying your bank balance for the sake a piece that will go out of style before you get a chance to really get any proper mileage out of it.

 

New Look shoes

 

Obviously you get what you pay for, but someone has already paid top dollar for my new favourite wears and then passed the savings to me. As these pre-loved babies were pretty much unscathed by their previous life I’d consider them to be quality pieces that have survived the test of time.

 

And that’s the secret of second-hand shopping, really. Recognizing a quality item and getting your mittens on it before anyone else scoops it. Be brave and hunt around.
