Barnardo's - One of a Kind


It's no secret, I love to shop and I love browsing the 'New In' section of what feels like every single online store out there! I am clothes obsessed to be quite honest with you.

The thing with fast fashion is that it is constantly churned out, day after day and we fill our wardrobes with endless clothes that sometimes don't even get worn. Barnardo's charity say that "around £44 billion" is spent on clothes in the UK every year, a figure that quite frankly blew my mind.

One thing that I know I am guilty of is sometimes forgetting that there are AMAZING charity shops out there, full to the brim with incredible pre-loved clothes and one of a kind gems that will take your high street outfits to the next level. 

When Barndardo's reached out to me and told me about their 'One Of A Kind' trend book; I was instantly intrigued and was over the moon when I saw that they had decided to exclusively use plus size girls. The trend book features a selection of Spring/Summer '17 looks and every outfit is made up of clothes and accessories donated to their stores. 

I urge you guys to take a look at the trend book, which you can pick up in store or download here and take a look at the gorgeous looks they have created. I hope that the trend book, as well as the look I have created below will inspire you to pop into your local Barnardo's branch and add a little chazza shop realness into your wardrobe.

If you do pick up something from Barnardo's, not only are you going to own something that is cool and unique; but you're also going to be helping to support the thousands of vulnerable children that the charity helps. It's a win win situation! 

Keep your eyes peeled for part II of this post where I show you another look I've created using a pre-loved Barnardo's item!
