On: Sunday 5th December
For: Putting up the Christmas decorations

I had at my favourite charity shop on Saturday. After a few weeks off the thrifting scene, I was delighted to uncover a whole host of second hand goodies on my return. This gorgeous russet red Topshop wool cardigan was just £4, and the sparkly arm candy came in at £8. Not the cheapest of pieces, but definitely among the prettiest.

I wanted to be casual yet cosy for a day grappling with fairy lights and fir trees, so kept my outfit simple. There’s always room for something gold and glamorous though, and this beautiful tassel necklace kindly sent to me by GOGO PHILIP was the perfect finishing touch.

PS – Have you entered my First Day of Christmas giveaway yet? No? Off you pop then!



I love it when it’s one of those amazing thrifty days, the ones that you just seem to uncover the bestest things all in one go. You got a whole host of delights, I think I would quite like a metallic leather bag, it screams look at me (in a good way) and the buckle detail is lovely xx


I’m a complete sucker for stripes, so I absolutely love this! And that’s a pretty good price for the gorgeous cardi, too – where I am, they always seem to mark Topshop stuff up, so it can end up almost as expensive as it was in the shop (well, OK, not quite, but you know what I mean…)

The Topshop cardi looks as if you could have got it from this seasons Topshop offerings – such a lovely rust colour. I’m very envious of all your thrift finds, you must have such a better eye than me for spotting charity shop gems! x


i haven’t been to my favourite charity shop in about a week (usually i go every other day! hehe), so hopefully i’ll have the same luck as you when i go in the next couple of days. the colour of the topshop cardigan is lovely. xxx


Niiiiiice find with that cardi. Very awesome colour this winter too. And I’m really intrigued with the necklace… off to check out GOGO PHILLIP.


Your hair looks seriously amazing. I wish I had the guts to go all the way but I don’t dare so I’m keeping it asymetrical for time being! Bag is lovely too, I’m so jealous of people who find amazing stuff in charity shops, all I ever come out with is books!


Wow! You have a great talent for sourcing some wicked charity shop finds! I love the rust cardie it looks fantastic on you! Hope you felt all festive after decorating your tree, for me that’s always the start of Christmas! x


The Topshop cardi is so lovely. I’m off to my local charity shops today for the first time in a month, so I’m excited to see what I’ll find.


such great finds – I am always a massive charity shop fan! I love the cardigan (nice job finding a Topshop one!), the colour is gorgeous – it really makes the rest of the outfit pop! really simple but lovely. Would love if you’d take a peek at my blog too for charity shop finds galore 🙂
