Time really is flying at the moment! So if anything, this would be the perfect year to join second hand September! It'll fly by!

Anyway, if you don't know, Oxfam started this movement to help push the battle against fast fashion. For the entire month of September you only buy second hand clothing and donate your pre loved items for someone else to find!
