#VintageFriday with Oxfam

And Dawn Porter’s

‘This Old Thing’

Oxfam Mill Road Vintage Shoot - #VintageFriday-1

Oxfam has teamed up with Dawn O’Porter to really show show off the kind of amazing finds, which could be had exploring our second-hand fashion emporiums.

If you’re one of our vintage adventurers, or someone who really loves that amazing feeling when you discover that perfect clothing item, you have bound to of heard of Dawn O’Porters Channel Four show; ‘This Old Thing’.

Oxfam has teamed up with Dawn to really show show off the kind of amazing finds which could be had exploring second-hand fashion.

Here at Oxfam Mill road, you will undoubtedly know that we are not the normal type of charity shop.

Vintage is at our heart, and we would like to inspire you to see what you could achieve by visiting our vintage clothing section. I’m confident you’ll walk out with a unique and different outfit.

Check out our recent Vintage shoot inspired by Goth, Skater and 90’s Fashion trends:

Lois shows us how to pull off the 90s inspired look that everyone is after right now. She wears a black ribbed crop top, black skater skirt, a plaid shirt and white Converse. As stunning as she looks, there’s a 90s essential missing: a choker! Have you got one you never wear? Donate it!

Sean shows us how to do the summer skater look in loose fitting denim shorts, stag print tee, canvas rucksack and Vans skate shoes.

The whole look is finished off with a bandanna tied around the wrist and shades. He just needs a board now so if you’ve given up skating and still have your board, donate it!

Sophie is fabulously festival-ready in this vintage lacy petticoat.

Accessorising is the only way to pull off underwear as outerwear and this studded belt, the black Doc Martins and the flash of colour from the bandana complete this look.

Pip adds a touch a gig glamour, in the seductive sheer shirt, high-waisted ‘leather’ skirt and killer heels.
