frugal friday: a thrift-tastic second-hand haul

If you follow me on Instagram (*looks over to the right hand side of the page*), you’ll know that I’ve had some pretty good luck with the old charity shops and eBay lately; I’ve brought home so many different colours, prints and patterns, and I LOVE them all. During the winter I tend to hibernate inside my jumpers and giant parka, but spring and summer are the months I start to get excited about clothes again. Skirts! Sandals! Pumps! Jackets! Cardigans! Printed trousers! Market bags and printed totes! *Dissolves into an excited heap*

I thought that as I’d found so many good things, I’d make a little video rather than just photographing it all – hopefully it’ll be a bit more fun to watch and you can get a better look at my second-hand loveliness in all it’s 3D, technicolour glory. Enjoy!

    So nice to see you and hear you – how exciting, I feel like I know you just a little bit better now. Oh and you could definitely rock that mr Motivator jacket this summer! X

    I feel compelled to write that I love the 80s Mr Motivator blouson type thing. You should definitely wear it. You will look fabulous (darling). Husbands are wonderful for many things, but not for fashion advice (well mine is rubbish anyway. Far too conservative with a small c.) I love a good chazza! I've had some great finds too recently (I feel a post coming on). x

    This is brilliant, so nice to see what you're really like (if you see what I mean!) My husband routinely takes the piss out of all my clothes, I think that's just what they do – so you should definitely wear the jacket xx
