Wow, this vintage and Fairtrade fortnight went by so fast. Here is a tiny post of the outfits I wore in the second and final week of the challenge.
This is a 1940’s dress which was £30 from my local charity shop, and the boots are hand-me downs from our ex mail-order manager Fran. Never be too shy to accept lovely gifts from your colleagues!
I’m wearing a Kashmiri hand embroidered Fair Trade skirt with a t-shirt that a total stranger gave me, which is a bit cheeky! And a handbag I bought second hand for £5 from my local charity shop and boots from the same place for £15.
This is my tyrannosaurus rex pose. I’m wearing a Fair Trade hand-woven Richard Nicoll shirt with a pair of jeans bought for £10 from my local charity shop.
1980s top that was second hand when I bought it, and simple hand-woven black trousers – Fair Trade of course! I realised today – I look crap in black!
This is one of my favourite Fair Trade dresses from People Tree Japan, designed by Chisato Tsumori – hand block printed and hand embroidered – so easy to wear. Worn with vintage inspired ring from the People Tree new Autumn/Winter collection
This is how I ended our Vintage and Fairtrade fortnight. At the weekend I had a lovely rummage around in car-boot sales and charity shops. Here are some of the things I found!

OMG! I love this gramophone.
If you have to buy one – buy a second-hand one.
