Charity Shopping – Summer Dresses

Charity dress cover

Hi everyone! I’ve been away for a little while, mostly because life and work got in the way, as they sometimes do. Rather than try some grand relaunch, or a total restructure of the blog, I’m just going to post some pictures of a couple of dresses I picked up from my local charity shop the other day.

This first dress is a summery jersey number from Mango, WHICH HAS POCKETS! I’m not sure my love for dresses with pockets with ever subside. The loose jersey, low cut back and bright print make this a perfect throw on dress for casual summer days. Did I mention it has pockets!?

I bought these wedge espadrilles at the tail end of last summer with a voucher for Marks & Spencer and then suddenly it was too cold to wear them. Thank goodness I don’t care about wearing last season, or the one before that, or the one before that (you get the idea!)

Belt: Accezzorize (about 12 years old!)

Shoes: M&S

The second find was this gorgeous zebra print Wallis sleeved dress, which is perfect for warmer days at work. It’s light and comfortable, with no fastenings to faff around with. I’ve paired it with these Lulu Hun wedges and adorable Vendula London shopfront handbag.

I love buying new clothes, and I’m never going to stop getting excited about adding new pieces to my wardrobe. But by sometimes buying things from charity shops, I feel slightly better about my consumerist ways, as it’s not adding to demand, and is also hopefully helping a good cause.
