While on my way to work for a meeting last week, a bout of rain caught me by surprise, so I popped into the Salvation Army op shop to grab an umbrella. As I had a little bit of time to kill before my meeting, I didn’t think anything of having a browse in the shop. Famous last words.
It’s pretty safe to say that given my ankle boot collection (currently sitting at about 8 pairs,and this doesn’t include pairs I’ve owned in the past) I am slightly obsessed with them. They’re a great choice of shoe for the transition seasons, and work so well with pretty much every item of clothing. However, being 5’0″ AND having athletic legs…
The last few days of winter are upon us in Sydney and I’m trying to get the most out of my knits before the weather starts warming up.
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.
When Sally from Steele My Style (and the @spotmystyle Instagram account) suggested wearing my pink blouse (that I normally wear to work) under my black dungarees to wear them in three ways, I accepted the challenge.
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.
I love me an Instagram style challenge every now and again, and this one by Jo from icurvy is a pretty good one.
