Thrift Inspiration, Net-A-Porter Style

The lovely Mrs Fab over at Trying to Look Fab in your Forties did a post last week on The Essential Boutique at Net A Porter, which features their Perfect 10 items for any womans wardrobe.

Well I was inspired by the minimalistic style of the knits, my favourites are shown here which are currently available at Net-A-Porter:

Phillip Lim, £320

Elizabeth and James, £345

Stella McCartney, £425

So suitably inspired by these, I was pleased to pick up this Per Una sweater by Marks and Spencer late last week in the Salvation Army charity shop for only £1.99.

It is a sage green colour, ideal for Spring and Summer as a casual chic look.

What style sweaters will you be wearing this Spring and Summer?

Sharon the sweater is a perfect match to those designer ones. Great Job.
I love cardigans. It must be the suppress librarian in me. Have a wonderful week!

Perfect find. Can't beat that price.

Nice one! I love these knits and simple slacks. I'm wearing oversized (as we speak actually) and also Aran-style things for the next couple of months.

Perfect, and a lovely shade. I am so bad at buying neutrals because I'm such a magpie, I would have walked right by this! You certainly have the eye Sharon, nothing gets past you! x

A great interpretation of the designer pieces but much better as you've got lots of money saved for more fabulous finds. xxx
PS No sweaters for me, I don't like the feeling of them.

That jumper is spot on against the knits that have inspired you and at a bargain price too! I think some of my local charity shops are pricing their products a lot higher than those you find your bargains in.

Dear Sharon, I must have been shopping on Ebay for too long! I'm astounded that a jumper costs three or four hundred pounds! Another great bargain. I don't own much knitwear - all of it is cheap cashmere from Ebay. Have a lovely week xx

This is the perfect colour for Spring!

What a bargain. That's actually a great idea, using Net-a-porter as inspiration for thrift shopping. I must go check it out, then I know exactly what I'm looking for instead of just using my usual haphazard purchasing techniques.

What a nice and lovely sweater dear and a bargain too.... I'm sure you'll look fantastic in it.
Have a nice week, my dear
