Fara, Angel – Charity Shop Tour, OOTD, and Review (New Vlog)

Hello! Hope you’re having an awesome thrifty week.

I recently had a day in London so got in touch with my good friend, and fellow blogger, Britishette to visit the newly rebranded Fara charity shop in Angel and film a lovely new vlog for you all.

DSC02793You may remember that this branch used to be called the Fara Workshop as they took donated fabrics and redesigned them into gorgeous clothes. It was super expensive (but worth all the effort and quality) so I only ever bought one thing, but I adore it. It’s a baby blue boxy jacquard top that cost £50 (gasp!), and you can see it in my Fashion Revolution OOTD post

Anyway….. they’ve now changed to a ‘regular’ charity shop model and focus on a mixture of vintage and hipster bargains. The prices are way way lower (think £3 for a pair of jeans or £8 for converses) and it’s got much more a jumble sale feel. The clothes are well curated, but quite a few had marks or tears so keep an eye out! But overall the styles were great and the display still light and modern. I was also surprised how big their men’s section was, as this is normally neglected, and the kids clothes looked really high quality.

Here’s what I wore…
