Mary’s Living and Giving

Did you get some gems from our super designer Saturday in Mary's Living and Giving shop this weekend? We hope so! But if you didn't make it down, don't worry – the bargains are still coming thick and fast. Fashion insiders have emptied their wardrobes and their designer and high-street donations land on the rails TODAY. The gorgeous author of A Year In High Heels Camilla Morton has given seven bags of Galliano, Balenciaga, Costume National, Chloé and Sara Berman. The most amazing YSL dress you've EVER seen has been kindly donated by Becky Smith from Harrods. Our very own Grazia shopping editor Sophie Ferguson-Jones has ruffled through her drawers for lots of Firetrap dresses, a couple of Joy pieces and a darling little D&G wallet. And there's more donations from Harvey Nichols buyer Averyl Oates, Grazia's style director Paula Reed,'s Sarah Mower, plus Evening Standard Fashion Editor and Grazia columnist Laura Craik. So what are you still reading this for? Get on a train, tube or bus and head down to the Village at Westfield, sharpish. These are bargains you can't miss. But don't forget to take your donations along with you, too. It's all about shopping neutral, people...
And for all you fashionable folks who have visited and donated to our charity shop – a huge THANK YOU! We've just heard we've made over £60,000 for Save the Children, MIND and Trees for Cities. Amazing!
