As promised when we set up TSC (Thrift Shop Cardiff) a couple of weeks ago we wanted to prove how you can actually dress smart from a charity shop! It isn’t all about the ‘Urban Outfitters’ dressed down “VINTAGE” look…for £45.00 plus!

 So this week we set about my search for the perfect outfit for an interview/meeting/date or whatever it might be that you need to look a little fancy for…and heres our findings for under £10.00!!!


Our first find was a simple classic black clutch complete with a silver clasp, it is very understated and would not look out of place on the shelve at Zara. (Interaid – Cathays – £1.00)

We then went on to find a staple crop sleeved black blazer, which could be dressed down with jeans or dressed up with a dress. (Bodus – Cathays – £5.00)

 Lastly, we found ‘THE GEM OF THE WEEK’ a heavy lace jacket/dress which was only £4.00 but it just looks so so so expensive due to the intricate detailing in the lace. (George Thomas Hospice – £4.00)

TOTAL: £10.00!!!!!

Sling on tights, a plain black t-shirt dress and some shoe boots and your done.

Let us know what you think in the comments below…

See you next week
