It’s National Op Shop Week here in Australia and it’s a great opportunity (see what I did there – tish boom) to visit your local op shop/thrift store/charity store to nab some great buys as well as support the work these organisations do for the community.
So those of you who are 5’2″ and under will know my pain when we go shopping for bottoms, specifically pants.
I recently bought a blue button up shirt by Re: (available through David Jones) and reading the label’s philosophy made me think about what I’m calling “responsible fashion”.
For quite a few years now I’ve done a fair bit of selling and buying on eBay (a lot more buying than selling, I have to admit :)) and I wanted to share what I’ve learnt from my experiences so far (as well as the excellent buys I’ve bought recently).
Since having kids I haven’t worn a lot of dresses. Well in fact, I haven’t worn a lot of dresses in general since high school, as I’m more of a pants girl.
The outfit I’m wearing in this post has been entirely thrifted through the main ways I buy second hand items.
Today was an unseasonably warm day for winter in Sydney, so for today’s blog post I thought I’d wear my lace blouse which I bought a little while ago but hadn’t had much of a chance to give it some love due to the cold.
