Who: Harriet from whereisharriet
What: Vintage sunglasses
Where: Good old eBay!
How Much: “I can’t remember exactly, definitely under £10 (about $15) though.”
When I Use It: “When it’s sunny, which, given that I live in England, is not that often! The clear plastic frames mean they go with everything so they often end up slipped inside my bag ‘just in case.’”
Shopping Tips: “Shop your mother’s closet! I’m pretty lucky in that my mum has never thrown any clothes away since she was about 16, so she has an amazing wardrobe of things to borrow. Even if your mum isn’t very fashion conscious I bet she has some vintage bags or scarves hidden away somewhere from years ago that she wouldn’t mind you taking off her hands! Totally free and a great bonding experience as you rummage through her wardrobe together.”
