Shiny Fashion TV: Charity Shop Challenge with Isabelle

isokimcharityshopvidjeans.jpgIf anything is going to prove just how ridiculous us Catwalk Queen girls can be then this is it. (I blame the afternoon Tesco doughnuts!)

Isabelle, queen of the charity shops (or "chazza shazzas" as they're known around our office), has been at it again this time at Oxfam on Drury Lane in London's Covent Garden. She found a great pair of almost new dark denim skinny jeans for £6.99 from Henneys. Click image right to play video.

Love charity shopping but don't have the time? Then check out what's available online at Oxfam, like this Karen Millen jacket for £19.99.

Shiny Fashion TV: Gemma's Charity Shop Challenge

I'm not a good charity shopper - I usually leave all that to Isabelle - but faced with the challenge of finding something wearable for a tenner in my local charity shop, I thought I may as well give it a good go.

I mentioned a while ago that I coveted one of Peacocks' Balenciaga-style fitted blazers, and lo and behold, I managed to find one for the £25 challenge. Here Emma and I look over the key piece and discuss ways to wear it. The good news if you love it is that the khaki version has been reduced to only £9 online. Bargain!
