This week I was thrilled to be invited to do a guest post on the Barnardos new blog – The Thrift. Purely for research purposes (as if!) I bought a head to toe outfit in my local Barnardos charity shop for just £3.98… so I was double thrilled! If you’d like to read my post head over to www.the-thrift.co.uk, and don’t forget to subscribe to them if you enjoy it. Previous blog contributors have been Sprinkle of Glitter (Youtube Queen), and Nicola Roberts (from Girls Aloud) – definitely feeling honoured to be in their company!

    THAT DRESS! Wow what an amazing find 🙂 Found your blog through a friend who forwarded on your Stylist piece to me. Looking forward to all your new (and old) posts 🙂

    I lobe finding outfits for under £5 in charity shops but to be honest…I really hate the dress. The print and mix of colours isn’t my thing but that doesn’t mean anything as that is an opinion down to the individual taste. But the style of the dress is so unflattering on you and I can imagine, on anyone. The proportions are so off and makes you look like a candle in a cupcake. Your figure is gorgeous but this dress really doesn’t do anything for you

      Hiya Selina. Thanks so much stopping by – hope you’re enjoying by blog – always glad to find another charity shop addict! Fair enough about the dress, I love it but I guess fashion is all just a matter of opinion! Have a great week <3

        Happy that you didn’t take offence, I like your blog and wanted to express my opinion without too rude to you (hopefully)
