How to Charity Shop (Top Ten Tips)

I consider myself to be a semi-expert charity shopper. I spend a lot of time in charity shops. A lot! If I had to quantify the contents of my closet I would ‘guestimate’ that about a quarter of it is charity or thrift purchases; primarily jackets, dresses, skirts, tops and knitwear. I don’t tend to buy second-hand shoes, although I have bought one or two pairs. Similarly, for hygiene reasons I tend to steer clear of trousers, although I will happily buy jeans, which can be laundered at higher temperatures.

LOOKBOOK: ModTogs New Collection

ModTogs has launched two new collections, both available NOW! The ‘Wear More, Pack Less’ range is influenced by Gill’s many weekend trips to Brighton: I’ve designed a range of interchangeable coordinating clothes that will enable the Mod woman to pack a capsule wardrobe of only four or five items and still be able to wear a different style for each event. This is a limited edition collection that is made to measure from a small supply of fabric. It’s designed to ensure you won’t turn up to an event dressed like everyone else! Below is a sample collection of available styles and fabrics. Please contact Gill at ModTogs for more details. In addition to the Wear More, Pack Less range, Gill has also designed a Swinging Psychedelic range for women who are passionate about the sixties. The Swinging Psychedelic range is also limited edition and made to measure.
