So imagine how pleased I was when the charity shops started upping their game and creating vintage sections....I can get a great outfit and give to charity at the same time....I am like a better dressed Bob Geldof!!
One of the most well known charity shops that has recently launched its very own vintage collection is Oxfam.
They have re-vamped their website and the vintage section now includes a shop by era option and a guide to vintage fashion...!! Also they have produced these simply gorgeous ads to help promote their vintage fabulousness which include a story about the piece...
....I really want the blue dress in the middle...SO MUCH...!!
And here are my lovely vintage finds from the Oxfam website...the prices range from £10 to around £50 and there are some truly lovely pieces on there....
This 1970's Liberty print dress is gorgeous and will be bang on trend with the Seventies making a come back this Spring/Summer
I love this skirt...high waist..check...bright colours...check...below the knee..check...would look great with a simple white vest and gold jewellery
And whilst we are on the topic of charity I wanted to bring to your attention the story of Preloved Reloved....in a nutshell a lovely lady is only wearing second hand clothes for a year in order to raise money for MacMillan Cancer Support. What a great gal...you can read her story here Preloved Reloved .
As this is a subject very close to my heart Hummingbird Vintage will be trying to help out Preloved Reloved as much as possible so watch this space for further details...!!
