I'm currently finishing a degree in Creative Writing and volunteering at Oxfam as the Shops' Marketing Intern. I always love to hunt through charity and vintage clothing shops to find unique dresses, tops and skirts. I really enjoy up-cycling and altering clothing to make one-of-a-kind pieces and usually have several creative projects on the go at once.
