With 63.1k followers and counting, its clear that our community can't get enough of Jen and neither can we! We sat down with her to ask what she's looking forward to this Fashion Month, which other fashionistas are on her feed, and her favourite TikTok to date.....
Firstly, September is Fashion Month! What are you most looking forward to this September
I’m heading to a few really exciting charity events this month so will need to plan some amazing outfits. They will all be second hand and sourced from the charity shops, so I’m excited to get creating those looks! This will also tie in with second hand September.
What first inspired you to create on TikTok?
It was my daughter who was a huge TikTok fan who suggested I show people my clothes from the charity shop, as she said lots would love my style and personality.
Have you been surprised by the response to your Charity shop finds?
Absolutely, I’m so surprised at the amount of people who’ve been inspired to try outcharity shopping - there are some who have never even stepped foot in one. Also, I love that people are seeing that you can dress premium for less.
What is your favourite recent challenge or trend on TikTok?
The Happiness Alexis Jordan trend - I did a video of what people said to me about charity shopping. I enjoyed doing something a little different than my usual content and having a dance.
What is your goal on TikTok?
To build a supportive charity shop family like following who love sustainable fashion - we would inspire each other and everyone to love pre loved shopping and finding their own style from it.
What is your favourite TikTok you have made to date and why?
It has to be when I styled my vintage Frank usher blazer with the Moschino belt and gold vintage bag All from Sue Ryder. I think that’s when people started to realise wow you can look good for less than £30 that video did really well and really made me start to feel confident.
