my monthly haul: january 16

I have decided to share my newfound vintage treasures with you each month. All of us girls, however much we proclaim to be “non-basic”,  are all addicted to buying things and spending a lot of money. My shopping addiction comes in the musty, crinkled and cheaper form, however. Here are my secondhand vintage finds from this month, where I got them from and how to style them. Hopefully it inspires you to run down to your local Salvation Army store or local charity shop and relish in the many outfit possibilities that each secondhand store harbours. Xx

SKATER STYLE

Backwards caps, graphic tees, baggy jeans and white sneakers are the essence of a cool, casual skater girl from back in the seventies. Oversized jeans and tees work best together for this look and create an easy but epic everyday outfit.
