Firstly, apologies.. I haven't posted in a while due to revising. While I still need to continue my revision, I won't be posting as much, but I am going to try my very best! Summer seriously can't come quick enough! But back to the post now!
Everyone loves a bargain right? When it comes to spending money I love it at the time and then I am filled with guilt for a few days after. While present day Rhianna is like "gimmie gimmie gimmie" future Rhianna is sat saying "you didn't really need that though did you". But, when it comes to shopping in charity shops, I feel no guilt what. so. ever. Not only are you getting something great, but the money goes to charity AND you get something for the fraction of its original price, you can actually feel good about spending money (did I really just say that?).
If you have spent most of your teenage life (like I did) saying "eww no I am not shopping in a charity shop", now is the time to think again, you will be truly surprised with some of the things you can get. Obviously I wash what I buy before wearing it but, saving the pennies definitely makes it worth it.
For example, I found this BEAUTIFUL River Island embellished top, WITH it's tags still on (even the spare beads) for £4.50. Now, it didn't say how much it was originally on the tags, but you can see how embellished it is, so I can't imagine it was cheap. But what a bargain!
If this top isn't an incentive to get to your closest charity shop and have a nosey then I don't know what is!
I appreciate that I haven't included a full length picture of the top, but I couldn't get one that did it justice!
It is safe to say that I am always checking my charity shops now! When I have the time to have a good old rake of course.
What is your best second hand find?
