About 6 months ago I bought the outfit in the picture below, apart from the wellies, from a charity shop.

Cardigan- Charity shop Dress- Charity shop Wellies- Hunter

I remember the utter amazement that Rosie, Grace and I shared as I handed over a £5 note, for a dress and cardigan, and got back change!  It was then that we started to think that maybe charity shopping was something that we should be doing more often.  Although I would like to pretend this year is going to be a selfless act and an utter struggle, I actually get an amazing sense of achievement from buying clothes in charity shops. I like to think of it as a little present for myself in exchange for a little present for someone else.

I have a feeling it is going to be harder than I first thought though, particualy in the summer when for no reason whatsoever my mind seems to think I need an entirely new wardrobe.  Hopefully this will be a new year of spending less on me and more on others, although I can only imagine how addicted I might get to buying junk that no one else wants!

Good luck girls, 2012 is going to be a good one!

One thought on “Gifts

  1. You have done very well for yourself, you look really chic and i’ve fallen in love with your Wellingtons, they’re such a sexy colour.
