" I dress for the theatre of my everyday life "


Preloved Chica YouTube

All my life I've enjoyed buying secondhand clothes, mostly from UK charity shops and for the last 3 years I’ve been creating weekly YouTube videos all about my own preloved shopping experiences.

I love the uniqueness that can’t be matched on the high street. It’s exciting, you never know what will turn up, so each shopping trip is different.

If you like to shop ethically, think it’s important to keep clothes out of landfill, you love recycling and you take pleasure in the story behind each garment you wear, then you and I are on the same wavelength. 

I’d love to hear about your preloved clothing purchases. You can join me on YouTube or listen to my Ipswich Community Radio show starting in January 2018 where I’ll have a special preloved fashion slot called "Loved Clothes Last"
