Get sum­mer look all for free at swap shop

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

With sum­mer 2017 well and truly upon us you can some­times find money is a lit­tle tighter than usual.

Book­ing up sum­mer hol­i­days, tak­ing the kids on days out, wed­dings, BBQs, the list of sum­mer ac­tiv­i­ties and events is never end­ing.

So, some­times treat­ing your­self to that new out­fit, or buy­ing some suit­case fillers for that last-minute hol­i­day you have booked is a lit­tle harder with money go­ing out else­where.

Fear not my friends – our handy Ruther­glen shops have got your back as usual.

This month I headed to ev­ery­one’s favourite lit­tle Aladdin’s cave, R:evolve Cloth­ing, sit­u­ated at 75 Ruther­glen Main Street.

For any­one who did not man­age to catch my pre­vi­ous col­umns, R:evolve is a swap shop, which means rather than pur­chas­ing gar­ments you swap your own ex­ist­ing/ un­wanted gar­ments for points, and these points can then be used to­wards some­thing from the shop.

The gar­ments taken in are care­fully checked, cleaned up and dis­played in such a fashion you lit­er­ally would not know you are get­ting a sec­ond-hand product. Take a look at some of the sum­mer looks we found.

The first out­fit that caught my eye was this stun­ning shift dress, pic­tured. The bright shades of green and blue just scream out “sum­mer time”, and is per­fect for a wed­ding guest look.

The shift dress is such a clas­sic look that it never goes out of fashion, with its above-the-knee length and ba­sic neck­line cut, it draws the at­ten­tion to your legs, per­fect to flaunt in the sum­mer sun. I matched this dress with a pair of light green chunky heels and gold cos­tume jewellery, both also items from Re:volve.

Dur­ing my tour of the shop I was al­lowed a sneak peak into the back shop and the only way to de­scribe it is as a trea­sure trove of fashion – I was in heaven! Rows and rows of cloth­ing rails, it was easy to see why there is a look for ev­ery­one.

I man­aged to put to­gether a stun­ning, celeb-in­spired fes­ti­val look. I paired a peach cross-over crop top with a cute set of denim hot pants. This look is also ex­cel­lent for those warm days abroad and loung­ing around the pool side.

Lastly, I found this clas­sic pe­plum LBD. Now I don’t usu­ally put black prod­ucts in the sum­mer cat­e­gory, but some­times it is a must (es­pe­cially if you are re­quired to for work pur­poses).

Why not pick up an LBD for the of­fice and a pair of pumps to stay smart and stylish? Per­haps add a light, chif­fon ma­te­rial type blazer and own the of­fice?

Re:volve has a va­ri­ety of stock in­clud­ing up-to-date items like the pic­tured black furry heels, dresses, jewellery... the list is end­less. So why not get your­self down with your un­wanted gar­ments and find your sum­mer look?
