For me charity shopping isn’t just the delight in discovering a ‘bargain’ but finding items that will stand the test of time.
Items I can wear repeatedly. Items that are quality and deserve to be worn over and over.
It has taught me the ability to see the worth and beauty in the used.
I am trying to be mindful of being selective about the items I bring home.
Channeling Marie Kondo and her approach to having around only those things that ‘spark joy’.
So I am buying classic pieces that I know I will get plenty of use from and I have begun curating my finds into outfits that truly do my shape and colouring justice and the other things I have in my wardrobe or home.
I hope you will appreciate some of my finds.
