A few weeks ago I went to a Liverpool Bloggers event. In my head I was totally organised and had already decided my outfit, however, the day before I decided to pop into Oxfam on Bold Street in Liverpool for a little browse (the back of my mind knowing this would never happen). I found two gorgeous shirts one of which was an off-white, stripy one and couldn’t resist changing my pre-planned outfit!
The classic shirt has been called into question this spring/summer. Designers and high-street brands have been experimenting with it, creating all sorts of different styles whether it be strips of cotton coming off the sides, an off-the-shoulder look, or a cotton belt attached to the shirt to tie around your waist. I have wanted to splurge on one of these gorgeous shirts for a while but when I popped into Oxfam I found it – an incredible one too! It isn’t of the experimental kinds but it’s great because it’s simple, classic and only cost £8. The colour is off-white with faint grey stripes and it’s also mid-length. The cotton is rougher and not the soft cotton we usually find with high-street brand shirts. But I love it! I find this material is better quality and warmer for the winter.
But the best thing…it is one of a kind! Just can’t beat the feeling of owning a piece that is unique to you and that is also funding work to tackle issues such as poverty and education.
