Norwich Fashion Jam charity shopping outfit
Most of my wardrobe is second hand clothes, primarily sourced in charity shops. I don't talk about shopping all that much come to think of it. Buying new-new clothes is quite a rareity for me, I don't tend to go out with the purpose of buying specific things and I almost never see someone wearing an item, ask them and go out and buy it myself. It's usually more that I pop in to a charity shop for a browse and if something grabs my attention then more often that not I can't resist buying it.

This jacket was a great find, one that I was thrilled to get my hands on (even though C exclaims I must be off to the dog races every time I wear it). My knitted skirt is a firm favourite which I've worn loads of times and this brown sparkly knitted jumper ties the whole outfit together. I've accessorised with my charity shopped heart necklace, T K Maxx boots and Joules bag from Country Attire. 

What I've realised about second hand shopping is the more you find, the more continuity your wardrobe has. These days I have far more that can be worn together in an interchangeable mix'n'match manner which is exactly as it should be.

These days fashion is a far more inclusive term than ever before and next week on Monday 14th March there is a new fashion show as part of Norwich Fashion Week called Norwich Fashion Jam which sees local students, bloggers, makers, stylists, creatives and designers put together outfits for the catwalk made only out of AgeUK Norwich charity shop donations. That sounds pretty cool. They have 24 hours to do it in starting Friday 11th March and then the show is held on the Monday at Norwich Castle! Want to get involved with the challenge or buy tickets to see the show? Money raised goes to support AgeUK.

  1. *raises hand* you definitely know that I am! Although my charity shopping has been flagging this year, as I've been buying things I need from the high street. I'm looking forward to our next shopping day though :)
    The Norwich Fashion Jam sounds intriguing - are you going?

  2. I love that skirt - the aztec style print is gorgeous. There's something cool about finding little hidden treasures in second hand shops and just think, you're breathing new life into a hidden gem! Love this post. - Tasha
