Recent Thrifted Clothes Haul!

Hey pals,

 

At one of my family’s favourite second hand warehouses, they have a £3 per bag of clothes sale (and the bags are pretty large) and I went to my first a little while ago. I did buy more than I’m showing but some were presents for someone else, not clothes, or did not fit but are up for sale on my depop so check that out! (buying from my depop helps me out a lot!) The tables were piled up so high and they kept dumping trolleys full on top! There’s another coming soon so I plan on going there again coz I found some great things!

First, I found this funky 80’s looking reversible jumper (which is a wee bit small on my arms but my arms are freakishly long and it was too cool to leave it!) it felt very Stranger Things one side and Beetle Juice the other!

I found a few oversized plaid (ish) shirts in a range of colours and brands! The green one is actually Ralph Lauren! The middle picture felt very Bowling For Soup, Ska–style so I had to grab it, living my pop-punk dad dreams.

This was my first attempt at wearing this shirt, with a t-shirt I thrifted from another warehouse for £1.

One thing i’ve been looking for, for a while, are some grungey mens rugby shirts and I found a couple I loved! I wasn’t too sure on the first one as it was a size small, but didn’t look too bad. Definitely one to save for a skinny day. But I absolutely adore the middle one (I think in a XL) I’m dead for the green and burgundy. The third picture is my favorite way to wear it with some corduroy 3/4-length trousers I’d picked up in a charity shop. I plan on replacing the elastic in the waist as it’s a bit stretched out, but otherwise I love them! (It was also the outfit I wore in a music video!)

This was not something I thrifted during this trip, but this is how I like to wear my clothes at the moment. These are my favourite trousers right now (besides the corduroy) real Levi’s from the racks in Brighton for only £10! and the £1 t-shirt I bought at Shabitat when they had the £1 clothing sale on!

 

If anyone really likes these blog posts, I’ll happily make more including pictures of me styling some of the items as I think this is fun. I don’t see a lot of LGBT+ style bloggers or YouTubers out there and kinda fumble my way around. i love clothes, and i love style, and I LOVE thrifting! So, I’d love to share these experiences etc. with you all!

Check out my IGTV Video of my recent thrifting experiences and some other clothes I’d picked up that aren’t shown here!

I’m also thinking about showing my thrifted wardrobe in a YouTube video sometime so if you’d like to see that let me know!

  1. Yes me too! I have so many cool bits i’ve picked up i’m thinking of turning it into a mini series on youtube as a way to encourage second hand purchases and also maybe talk a little about the charities as well? lots of people don’t know that the salvation army is homophobic and transphobic and other things like that. haha you’re probably right but i feel so bad having so many when i don’t wear them much!

  2. I prefer to thrift silk shirts and skirts. I don’t like thrifting checkered shirts. Some may come with undetected damages when shopping.

  3. yeah things tend to be better priced, one of my reasons for doing it too! but there is definitely the gendrication issue of thrifting where shops have caught on to it being a trend for people with money so charge more and making it less accessible for people with less expendable money.
