Charity Shop Challenge: The Photos


I have a feeling this may be a photo heavy post!! I had my mum, Beth and Ben taking photos for me so I have quite a lot, all the ones in the churchyard are by Beth afterwards. So for those of you who might not have read my last post, on Saturday as a part of Newcastle Fashion Week I got to take part in something called the Charity Shop Challenge where I had £15 to spend in charity shops to get an entire outfit in less than an hour (I think it was about 25 minutes actually!). Above is me talking to the woman who was presenting before we got sent out, I’m wearing a dress Modcloth sent The Lovely Ones for our clothes swap, but I’ll do a proper outfit post with it soon!! Note the thing I’m stood next to in the last photo above, that was where we had to get changed =D And below, my completed outfit!!


There were four other contestants, all the outfits they chose are below too. It was a little bit scary because we had to go up on Grey’s Monument before we got sent out and talk in front of the whole crowd down the microphone and then afterwards when we got back too. In fact, you know what, I’ll let you see the video of me talking, here you get to see me in real life!!


And here are some photos my mum and sister took afterwards while the official Fashion Week photographer was taking my photo =D


And finally, a massive dump of photos my sister Beth took afterwards in the churchyard, she was telling me the poses to do and some of them came out really well!!

I’m back again now after my exams by the way! I’ve still got two more, but a week until one, then 5 days until the other, so plenty of time to blog and revise =D Oh and I’ll list the prices of everything in the outfit for you, just so you can see that I did get it all for under £15!
Headscarf: Charity (£1)
Mustard Top: Charity (£3)
Skirt and Belt: Charity (£4)
Handbag: Charity (£3)
Red Shoes: Charity (£3.29)
Oh and I’m posting over at Charlotte’s blog later today, so don’t forget to check that out!! I’ll let you know when it’s up =) Sorry for the photo-heaviness too!!
