Second Hand Treats

With Christmas making a dent in my bank account the past few months, I've been sticking to second hand shopping a lot more than usual recently. I've been raiding charity shops, scouring eBay and rifling through jumble sales for cheap second hand items to treat myself to. Some of my favourite finds are pictured below.
Second hand items (left): Zara leopard print detail jacket - eBay, black top - jumble sale, necklace - charity shop, (right): leopard print detail coat - charity shop, cream top - jumble sale.
Leopard print is my favourite pattern, so I was pleased to find these two items for under £10 each. The black and cream tops are great wardrobe basics and cost me around 25p each.
Second hand items (left): Beatles t-shirt - Oxfam, black jeans - charity shop, (right): brown jacket, Topshop jeggings - charity shop, cream top - jumble sale.
I rarely buy jeans new now, as there are always rails of them in every charity shop. The black jeans on the left are my favourite pair, and cost me just £1!
Second hand items (left): Topman bird print jumper, black jeans - charity shop, (right): jacket, striped top, necklace - charity shop.
The majority of my oversized jumper collection is from the men's section of charity shops (the rest are stolen from my brother's wardrobe). The same can be said for my stripy top collection!
If your purse is looking a little worse for wear after the holiday season, why not take a look at the Oxfam online shop for an affordable treat to get you through those January (and February!) blues.
