HIGHSTREET VERSIONS OF THIS MONTHS FAV CHARITY SHOP LOOKS #1

Yesterday I went to London and had lunch with Anna, one of the lovely ladies from rewardStyle. We talked about lots of things, one of them was how I used to get asked lots of questions on formspring about what to buy on the highstreet and then I would go and find individual outfits for different people, this was back in 2010 of course. It was really fun so I thought maybe I should do something like that again. She also mentioned that I should do 'Shop The Look' type posts which, personally I've always thought of as a bit sell-out-y, but it does make sense in terms of because I wear a lot of vintage and charity shop items, they're all quite individual garments but I could find high street versions to show you all! So I thought that I would put together a post with my top three looks from the past month that have gained the most interest from you guys and show you where you can get my charity shop/ vintage items on the highstreet!

Let me know if this is something you'd like me to do more often, I may even start finding outfits for people on my ask.fm if anyone would be interested in that<3

  1. I do love the idea of these posts. It makes shopping for specific items much simpler than spending hours and hours trawling through the 'tartan skirt' tag on eBay. Question,where is that amazing white backpack from?
