I heart charity shops

I really love charity shops, I found this skirt for three pounds in one! I know it is really down to pure luck, but I think that's part of the fun. I have one key tip; Have a loose idea of what your looking for, whether this be a trend, or a certain item of clothing and you will probably find it less daunting. Although there is a definite increase in the amount of people shopping in charity shops a lot of my friends still look at me flabbergasted when I tell them where I found my new purchase. Sometimes I feel like they don't know me at all *sighs*. I joke of course, but surely this proves that there's still a lot of variety and quality items to be found... there is a lot of crap too. So to re-cap keep an eye on trends and what's missing from you wardrobe, once you get into the swing of things you will be walking around Topshop saying 'I could find that in a charity shop!' and 'how much? pffftt... get me to a charity shop!'
And here is were I contradict myself, the jumper I am wearing is from Topshop... it was in the sale though 'I plead for you forgiveness' (bended knees and clasped hands).   
Have you found any bargains in charity shops? or do find yourself doing the same in High-street shops?
Enjoy the pics

  2. This skirt is perfect and such a bargain.
    I'm a fellow charity shop lover, I giggled when you said about walking around Topshop saying 'I could get something like that in a charity shop' I constantly say this. :) especilly with the blouses and jumpers.. you really can't beat chaity shop shopping. You feel so happy when you find something that you've actually had to search for.. its so rewarding :)
