OxGlam Fashion – MixUp

Pick your own fashion items from the gallery below and put a new ‘mixing up the era’s’ outfit together.

Oxfam have designed an OxGlam collection to celebrate the 190th anniversary of the first passenger steam train – taking us through the eras from 1825 to modern day.

OxGlam is produced by Oxfam JesmondOxfam Boutique Durham & Bookshop Oxfam Darlington.

Just tell us your numbers, or how you’d wear it, or show us about your thriftiest outfits ever!

You can post on social media using Twitter or Instagram using  #OxGlamOutfit. The winner of the best outfit (as chosen by our OxGlam team) will be our Thrifty Fashion Blogger for the 2016 Festival!

    1, 2, 11, 16
    Patterned Shirt (11) teamed with Jeans (2). Wrap blue shawl round waist at hips and tie as a belt, worn hipster-style with the point of the scarf over to one side (at front). Add Tan Jacket (1), then sling Handbag (16) across the body (opposite side to the scarf, so the scarf point is still visible). I suggest pointy-toed flats or kitten heeled shoes (no higher, though – I think the flares need to stay quite low), perhaps in a mustard shade, or a red-orange colour picked out from the patternded shirt – but no bows or buckles or anything shiny – just keep it simple and let the colours do all the work! Et voila! Hope you like it!
