Thrifting Amore

You might have noticed a little #ShowMeTheThrift buzz on mine and Polkadot Pink’s instagram accounts last weekend. We were out and about and thrifting. This year we plan to travel the country (or the North at the very least) to enhance our love of all things second-hand and sustainable fashion. One might call it Thrifting Amore.

We love thrifting so much, we decided to start our own Instagram Thrifting Community hashtag #showmethethrift. I love a good thrifty instagram account mainly because I like to see what bargains others can pick up whist saving money and doing their bit to recycle clothes and save the planet.

And so, last weekend we were ready to do our bit.

Armed with lunch (and cake, who are we kidding here?!) money, tote bag and lots of hopeful inspiration we set off for a day full of thrifting. I had a bit of a shopping list already in my head: BretonΒ high neck tee, black fitted workΒ shirt, spring style dresses… all I needed now were for the charity shop gods to be kind.

First Stop… Southport

(via Scarisbrick Marina for a very windswept stroll).
