Sadie P

Oxfam Fashion blogger

Sadie P

I'm a 20 year old university student, and for the past 2 years I have been writing a vintage fashion blog in my spare time. I love the excitement of a Saturday afternoon spent browsing my local charity shops, especially when I return home with lots of amazing vintage pieces!
