Waste Not Want Not...



So a charity shop girl at heart and a mean desire in boot/jumble sales. I must admit I love a good old rummage.

Well the most peculiar thing happened last night, the boyfriend was putting the bins out and he noticed that there was a mysterious bin bag in our green bin. Which is kind of weird as it’s for garden waste…leafs, soil, grass etc.
Further inspection led to him discovering it was infact a bag full of clothes!...yes clothes! He thought I had had a mad clearout, but no, somehow we have ended up with a bag of clothes in our bin.

Well on came the rubber gloves (didn’t want to stumble across a dead rat or anything!) and to my surprise a full bag of clothes barely worn.
I was particularly thrilled to see Moto labels peeking out of the bag



So what did I find?
Well I haven’t stolen everything here, but I couldn’t let these things pass by without a try…

G:21- I love G:21 and love this top, it’s barely been worn and I would have so bought this in a Charity Shop.




And this lightweight George turquoise vest, great for the summer.




Also there was this check print dress by G:21, at first I was critical about this, dismissing it as too loud and garish, but since trying it on, it definitely looks 100 times better on, and I think I’m going to shorten it, make it into a shirt :)


John Rocha Skirt- This has the tags still on it., and makes me very happy, it will be perfect to wear on the beach on my holiday :) I love the flower detailing.



I also found a little black per una skirt which will come in useful, as I don’t actually own a black skirt!

I will be washing everything before wearing, and the rest of the clothes, will be folded and re-bagged for charity. I think I will get my boyfriend to drop the bag off to the actual shop, so this time the clothes actually make it there, as all I can think is that this bag was originally put out for a clothing collection and whoever stumbled across it presumed it was rubbish and chucked it in the nearest bin (which they shouldn’t have, as it was our bin) but hey what can I say I’m not disappointed!
