Rosalind Jana (blogger and TRAID fan) shares her outfit for #Secondhandfirst Week. Everything she is wearing is second hand (other than the tights!)
The tweed vintage skirt is from a charity shop, as is the bottle green polo-neck and blue trilby. The Chelsea boots are second-hand men’s Russell & Bromley ones. I wear them constantly. The leather jacket is Escada. I bought it from a charity shop years ago and, as a teenager, my mum helped me to add a collar – the sheepskin taken from a blanket that belonged to my dad as a baby. The whole look was put together because I was feeling ill and tired, and needed something a little sassy to get me through a day of work. #secondhandfirst is pretty much second nature to me, as it’s my favourite way to source clothes anyway.
