Fix Up, Look Sharp Event!

The other day I attended the Bristol Fix Up, Look Sharp event hosted by Clic Sargent.In case you don't know, Clic Sargent is a Children's cancer charity and this event was all about displaying the ways you can customise and modernise clothes that you can find in charity shops!
I must admit I feel awkward when going into charity shops, I always donate but never purchase. However, when I got the email I was really excited to see what they had come up with to encourage people to try this idea out.
The main thing I noticed about the clothing at the event was that all the customisation was really simple and with a little inspiration anyone could do it! Even if you're not handy with a sewing machine there are so many things you can do to customise a charity shop find!
Here are some pictures from the event to give you a little inspiration...
