A clothing library

I got some great stuff at the charity shop on the weekend. One treasure is this turtleneck top made by Geiger of Austria which I bought for £7.



I’ve not heard of this brand before, probably because it’s out of my price range, but I love wearing turtlenecks in winter and this one is very thick and warm and made with wool. It’s in such good condition too with no pilling at all.

I also got this fab navy velvet skirt. It’s from White Stuff but only cost me £7 and looks new. The top also came from the charity shop and is a mix of wool and nylon.


It’s fun to wear different clothes without having to spend much money. When I tire of them I take them back to the charity shop. This got me thinking about whether there’d be any demand for a clothing library. The idea is that you pay a monthly fee, borrow the clothes you want to wear that month, then return them and borrow a new set. If there’s something you really like then there’d be an option to buy it permanently. I wonder whether there’d be much demand for this but then maybe that’s kind of how charity shops work anyway.
