Charity Shop Chic

For our recent assignment at University we were split into groups and allocated a charity shop in Aberdeen from the shop we had to create an outfit using just £10 and this will be then shown as an exhibition alongside the other groups outfits. My group were selected to uses the Cancer Research stores, there are three in Aberdeen which allowed us to have far more choice in clothing. Using our £10 we purchased the white blouse shown in the photos for £4, it is a size 22 and we decided to model and show it as a dress. The group also bought a small bag shown again in the photos for just £2 and today we revisited the charity shop and bought a scarf for £4 to complete the outfit.

We dressed our blouse for different looks and occasions to emphasise that you can wear things in so many different ways, show about is our festival look. We teamed the blouse and bag with  a pair of wellies, hat and sunglasses for a laid back approach.

Here we simply added heels and a black blazer which are both basic items but totally change the look.

I will post some new photos later in the week of the other styles and looks.

Sunny Days

Over the past few weeks Scotland has had some lovely days of sunshine which is rather strange for this time of year as usually it would be snowing. Despite the fact that I have far too much work to do for University I have been making the most of the lovely days. Here are a few photos from a recent trip to one of my favorite parks in Aberdeen.
