Chloe for Everybody: How Charity Shops Make Designer Accessible to All

Chloe For Everyone: Affordable Designer

It's extremely rare for me to go on too much about my favourite designers or brands, but Chloe is one of the few fashion houses with the ability to make me go weak at the knees and definitely knows how to get my overtly sentimental heart racing, every damn time.

So when I clamped my peepers on these black Chloe trews a few weeks ago for a mere £20 in the Drury Lane Oxfam, I knew they were coming home with me. With an almost satiny shine to the exterior, they encapsulate just the right balance of smart/casual and would be equally well paired with ballet flats and a plain white tee (whatever happened to that band?! *sigh*). I teamed them with a pale grey Gant knit jumper and Zara blazer (both charity shops finds), to keep the outfit conducive with my typical go to uniform - Parisian wannabe (!)

Thank you again to Oxfam charity shops all over, for making high end brands accessible to everyone, not just the minted.
