My Style Blog to reconsider charity shops and car boot sales as an alternative choice to the high street, no VAT is an added bonus, while supporting a charity.
My nearest shop is about 10 minutes up the road and supports a local hospice. I've started to pop in on a regular basis to check for bargains. This weekend I had my first successful purchase was this Marks and Spencers jumper (never worn and tags still attached) helping me towards the Spring/Summer 2011 trend for stripes.
I did also spot a Max Mara polka dot jacket for sale at £25 but sadly not my size but the fact I had recognised a quality jacket made me chuffed as I have been taking notice of all you lovely fashion bloggers advice!
