New in // Charity Shop Treasures

Autumn style finds charity shopping second hand ethical fashion I always like digging out treasures in charity shops and this Autumn there have been some real golden finds. A khaki green silky top with turned up sleeves and a gridded texture. A mohair chunky polo knit, with the kind of slouchy fit to rival any Zara bestseller. A minimal gold necklace that works with every neckline. A silky strappy cami for under a big furry coat on nights out. All for under £15! Treasure indeed.
Do you ever manage to pick up seasonal finds in charity shops? If you're Manchester based let me know where the best ones are- although I know that can be like asking someone to share trade secrets!

Shop // Autumn wishlist

Oh it has been an age again. It feels like most of OCtober has had me laid out with one of those never ending colds. Streaming eyes and nose, sore throat, headaches, the whole shebang. I'm a little sick of lemsip and BBC Iplayer now, so I thought I'd move onto online window shopping instead! I think I have a little thing with grey going on this Autumn... But this would pretty much be my perfect outfit right now. Beaumont Organic, Moxham, Miista, what beauties!

Style // Chequered Coat

chequered coat for autumn I knew the Indian Summer couldn't last forever... The rain has arrived and temperatures have dropped nearly 10 degrees in what seems like overnight. Nevermind, at least it is coat weather finally! I have been obsessed with wrap fronted coats this year, staring a little too longingly at some of the blanket like offerings available at H&M and Zara. For me, each new season is when it feels really hard to buy ethically instead of heading into the highstreet stores, but with a little work something can usually be found to stem the cravings. After far too many Ebay trawls and failed bidding wars, I got my hands on this snuggly wool coat for under a tenner including postage. That's only £150 cheaper than the Zara one I liked... Nothing like a price difference to remind you of the bonus of shopping second hand! blanket coat and torn jeans autumn style blanket coat and jeans
