A letter from Emma about: More Jumpers

Dear Readers,

As promised, this is the post about the lovely items my flatmates brought from FARA during the week. 

Flatmate number 1 (Roseanna)


Originally from MANGO and cost £9.50 from FARA

Flatmate number 2 (Cat)


Originally from Topshop and cost £7 from FARA

The jumper I brought  is very different from these two, all of the jumpers are very different. I guess what I am trying to say is that charity shops can meet everyones needs. Contrary to popular belief, they have lots of choice and variation in stock, which I often think is a  negative taboo associated with them. Often many people say to me that 'they' never find anything in charity shop, I just wanted people to know I do not have charity shopping superpowers.  Charity shops really do have something for everyone and if at first you don't succeed then try the next one down the road.

The jumpers we brought were all brands of some sort, and often ones without brands go for a little cheaper, in the past I have brought jumpers for under £4 (so you can save even more money). As students charity shopping is a great way to save lots of money as well as staying fashionable, it's also a lot of fun!

Yours,

Emma Dilemma

  7. so funny, i still forget a jumper is a sweater over there. where did that term come from, do you know? i always think of a jumper something relating to jumping... so like something that would cover the bottom too haha. anyway, i completely agree, charity/thrift stores have amazing finds. love that your roommates are going as well! i'm always convincing more friends and coworkers to give them a try with me. love all the jumpers : ).
