I have some great news , I have purchased my first staple piece of the season.
It is a lovely Zara 3/4 length black coat, the best bit of this purchase was that it was bought from a rather fabulous charity shop in Notting Hill. Now, as a long term shopper/lover/fan of charity shops I must admit I hated it when they started getting all organised, tidy and displaying the clothes on a wooden hanger, I guess we have Mary Portas to blame for that.
My favourite thing about a charity shop is being able to have a rummage, after years of traipsing round many Salvation Army's and Cancer Research I do count myself as a bit of an expert but overall the feeling is good, giving money to an excellent cause and being able to get a gem of an outfit from it!
The other day I ventured to Portobello Market with a friend from work (who was a fab tour guide may I just say). We came across a Fara Charity Shop and being Notting Hill all the clothes were the likes of Zara, Cos, Whistles and then high end designer and all at good prices to. The Zara coat jumped out and literally onto my shoulders and at a mere £18 I was rushing to the tills. Now the journey continues for a leather jacket, leading me onto this weeks Wednesday Wants...
Leather Biker Jacket / Shearling Leather Jacket / Colour Block Leather Jacket / Bomber Style Leather Jacket
Which one is your favourite?
