I've been in to charity shops probably 5 times in the last year. The first time was due to Sharon Rose-Style inspiring me into action and I scored big time with a Jean Patou coat. Then I decided to take the petit garcon for a rummage and he found a little Spiderman mobile phone. I popped in my charity shop of youth on a recent trip to my parents and I'm sure I've peeked and forgotten an occasion.
On Friday I needed some more dye and on my way to get some fish I popped into a local hospice charity shop. Channelling Sharon Rose, I was actually thinking pink, I found a lovely Gaultier Jeans maxi dress on the fourth rail. I tried it on and thought it would be great for next summer or beach holidays.
I knew it has never been worn and thought it must have been a manufacturing or sale shop supplier donation. All the while I cycled home I kept thinking I've seen this before. And sure enough I'd only gone and thrifted the exact same item as Queen of thrit Sharon Rose. Is there such a thing as blogging osmosis?
Well you can tell I'm only a lady in waiting as my dress cost £7.50 compared to the queen's £1 purchase!
