You all know that I love a good pre-loved bargain, whether it’s from a charity shop, the car boot sale or even from somewhere online and this is my monthly post to share some of my bargains with you!
I know I say this pretty much every month but I genuinely love buying second-hand (here are 8 reasons why I think buying second-hand clothes is the future) and this month’s little haul has made me super happy as usual as I got lots of great bargains!
This first top is the prettiest little wrap top from Blue Vanilla which cost me £4.59 and I absolutely LOVE it! The fabric is super soft and it fits lovely and is so comfy on! It’s a definite going out for a drink with the girls top and will look fab with a pair of jeans and boots.
This next one is a gorgeous blue floaty top with pleats around the side and at the back where it’s quite a bit longer. It’s from Capsule which I think is Simply Be’s own brand and I love the style and colour of it although it is a little bit big on me which makes it not as flattering as it could be so I’ve popped this one on Vinted.
OK, I paid more than I usually would for second hand clothes with this top – it’s a short-sleeved knitted top from Hobbs and I paid £7.59 for it. I know Hobbs is quite a good brand which accounts for the bigger than normal price tag but it really is lovely on and you can feel the quality of the top. I tried it on with the trousers below and I really liked the way it looked on me which doesn’t happen too often so I couldn’t leave it in the shop.
The photo doesn’t do these Dorothy Perkins trousers justice at all. They’re actually a dark chocolate colour with cream spots on them and they cost me £4.59 which is an absolute bargain for the amount of wear that I know I’ll get from them. They’re not leggings (which are my staple bottoms at the moment) but they do feel as comfortable on as they do have a bit of stretch in them so I’m really pleased with them.
This is my biggest bargain of the month – a Regatta jacket for £2.49! It was reduced in the sale (as if charity shops have January sales) and I’ve worn it loads since I bought it as I’ve made it my dog walking jacket. 😂. It’s warm on, looks fab and has perfect sized pockets for my phone and my headphones. What a bargain!
Another thing I say each month but when I buy things anything pre-loved, I try and only use money that I’ve made from things that I’ve sold on Vinted so either things that I’ve bought to sell on or things from my wardrobe that I know I won’t wear again so I rarely pay actual money for anything you see that I’ve bought from there.
I also have a one in, one out policy so if I buy something to add to my wardrobe then I sell on Vinted or add something to the pile to donate to the charity shop near where I live.
Hopefully, I’ll be back next month with more pre-loved bargains.
