My Oxfam Online Shop Wish List

23rd Sep 2014
As a self-confessed second hand shop addict, I find it nearly impossible to walk past a charity or thrift shop without going in and having a rummage. So when the shops shut, I find myself frantically searching online to satisfy my bargain hunting cravings. Oxfam's Online Shop is one of my favourite places to search for good quality items at low prices. I could easily spend all day scrolling through the vintage, designer and high street fashion. I always have my eye on something so I am going to share my wish list for the
1.Whistles Chelsea Boots - £55
My shoe collection is mainly made up of ankle boots and the Chelsea boot is my absolute favourite. This classic style instantly adds a touch of casual cool to an outfit; whether it's a dress or a pair of skinny jeans. These Whistles mid-heel boots are perfect for Autumn and at £55 they are a bargain. If only I was a size 4!
2. Emporio Armani Blazer - £29.99
Plaid, tartan or check. Whatever you want to call it, it's everywhere. This year's most prominent pattern could still be seen on the Spring/Summer '15 catwalks, so it will be sticking around for at least another season. This vintage Armani Blazer is perfect for channelling this trend in a smart, subtle way. I would team it with a pair of plain shorts or skinny cigarette trousers.
3. Burberry Coat - £45
If you can't quite afford to splash out for a classic Burberry trench, this vintage Burberry coat would make a great alternative. It's in good condition so at £45 it's a steal.
4. Next Knee High Boots - £12.99
The boot of the season is knee or thigh high so these faux suede boots from Next would make a perfect addition to my Autumn/Winter wardrobe. I have been on the hunt for the perfect pair and whilst I would prefer an over the knee style and a lower heel for everyday wear, at £12.99 these are just too much of a bargain to pass up.
5. Whistles metallic backpack - £115
This bag is so pretty. Just look at it! Formal backpacks are having a comeback this season and metallic's can be seen absolutely everywhere at the moment. When you put these two huge trends together, you have one hot item. This year, Whistles have done backpacks very well and I have lusted over nearly every single one they have brought out. Even though the price has been significantly reduced from its retail of £295, I still can't quite afford it. But a girl can dream.
6. Whistles Skinny Jeans - £22.99
I have wanted a pair of Whistles skinny jeans for a while now but I just can't justify the £95 price tag. So when I saw this gorgeous blue, quality pair for only £22.99, I just had to buy them. I am wearing them as I write this and I can honestly say that they are the perfect fit and probably my new favourite pair of jeans.
