Charity Shop Finds

 

"One man's junk is another man's treasure." You have probably heard this saying before and it seems to hold great merit; charity shops are a great way to find one off items, things you wouldn't necessarily see in a shop and often for way less than you would pay for in a regular store. 

There are many reasons to shop in a charity shop for fashion. One obvious reason is to save money, you might be into vintage fashion and one-off pieces, you might like to recycle and not partake in fast fashion, or you might like giving your money to charity.

I would in courage each and everyone of you who are reading this to take a quick peek in a charity shop next time you should pass…you never know what treasure awaits you!

Tips to prepare your wardrobe for Autumn!

We are soon approaching the end of summer, and soon we will be dragging out our autumn/winter boxes down from storage and swapping out our spring/summer clothes. What should you put away? What should you keep? There are sure to still be very sunny days in London in the weeks to come so you don't want to be stuck with heavy knits and dark colours!

Start now by taking a look at your wardrobe and do a simple rearrangement of garments. Here you see my wardrobe before I have organised. Everything has sort of been thrown back after washing and nothing has any order, I have summer garments mixed in with winter garments, etc.

Start by organising by length and colour, grouping summer items together (bold prints, light fabrics) and Autumn items (warmer fabrics, longer lengths of sleeves). This will make it easier for you to box up summer items quickly once you REALLY decide summer is over. For me, I will opt to make the official swapover mid-Sept unless a heatwave should pass thru.  

Voila! Organised and easy to see what should stay, what should go.

New Fashion Blog/Website

Today is a bittersweet day for me as I lay to rest a couple of projects I have worked on in the past to make room for something completely fresh and new. This website "CynthiaLiza.com" is a compilation of all my fashion work to date since I moved to London in 2011 with a dream to become a fashion stylist. Biggest love to my soul sister Lucinda who helped me put together this next project! I'm excited to share all my fashion adventures with the world again! X
