Introduction

Commentary Piece 1 I'm writing to advise and inform. The purpose of this piece is to give an insight into charity shopping using my personal experience, giving an alternative to vintage shops, using tips on to what to expect and why the reader should try charity shopping . My audience is for people interested in fashion, shopping and mainly saving money this could appeal to anyone from 15 years of age to post university students who have small budgets.

I used a bit of humour unlike my style model which purpose isn't humorous but I still tried to keep it 'dry' as I don't want to over use it making the advice seem more of a joke then good advice; here are some examples of humour ' rather intimidatingly stylish man', ' my girlfriend was just going to have to wait', not in your face jokes but attempts to engage the reader. ...read more.
