just a charity shop girl.

If you follow me on Twitter and read through the comments on my last post, you would of seen that my dear blogger friend, Claire from Jazzpad, challenged me to inject a tad more colour into my very neutral and rustic wardrobe. Whilst mustard isn't the brightest, I think I done rather well considering the majority of my clothes are black and grey. What do you think? Any tips and suggestions would be lovely!

Today was my sixth shift in my favourite local charity shop, it was such a busy day! I honestly recommend that anyone in London pops by tomorrow or on Friday, there is oh so much stock that I priced and put out today. For starters there are two, yes two, full to the brim fifty pence rails, plus other rails with many lovely dresses, jackets, skirts and trousers. I saw many good labels including Topshop, Gap, Uniqlo, Diesel, Next, St Michael, Comptoir des Cotonniers, DKNY, Laura Ashley, Jigsaw, Monsoon, New Look, Dorothy Perkins, Zara and H&M. Oh my goodess, there is lovely Chanel-esque St Michael cropped jacket, which I would have bought if it wasn't so big on me. Ha, look at me getting excited over all of the secondhand clothes! At the end of my shift I left with two COS t-shirts, a Gap denim shirt and a Gap striped top, all for free, originally from the fifty pence rail. I offered to pay but the lady I work with said that was for all of my wonderful help these past few weeks, so sweet! Love, Jazzabelle. P.S. Thank-you for the amazing amount of lovely comments on my previous post, I honestly can't believe how many I recieved. EDIT: Just corrected the link to my favourite charity shop, sorry!
