Liv Heeney

Oxfam Fashion blogger

My name is Liv Heeney, I am 18 years old and I'm from Merseyside. I volunteer at Oxfam Bold Street and have and interest/obsession with all things vintage. One of my favourite things about picking up a vintage find in Oxfam is that it gives you the chance to alter the garment to fit you perfectly and create an authentically vintage look. My other likes include red lipstick, earl grey tea, skin tone tights and musicals. In the future I aspire to have a career in the fashion or textiles industry.
