I seem to have made up for my lack of shopping during my pregnancy and the first half of last year! On our trip down to Brighton last week we came across the People Tree pop up shop and they were having sale yay! A pop up shop is a shop that …well pops up stays for a bit and then pops off again. Terra Plana gave up half it’s shop to allow Tree People to fill it up with their fair trade, organic wares. It’s a really good idea especially for online shops as you get to feel and try on the clothes. I have a bit of a thing for grey and jersey (I say whilst sitting here typing in a grey sweatshirt!) and when I spotted a grey version of a funnel neck jersey cardigan on their sales rack I went straight for it (and £18 less than the sale price online)!
I have also been shopping a lot more in charity and vintage shops, I bought this cardigan from Episode in Camden after I had been pining for a non wool version of Victoria Secrets’ shawl collar cardigan.
Good old Ebay hasn’t let me down either, I set the condition filter to ‘used’ and away I go! Purchases last year include a tea dress, vintage Laura Ashley sun dress, some wet look leggings, a SSOV t-shirt and these preloved Johnny Cupcake t shirts.
An update on my shoe collection is coming soon!
