One Item Three Ways: The Black Slip Dress

As you may already know, I’ve consciously been trying to participate in more sustainable fashion by buying second hand (via thrift stores/op shops, eBay or Gumtree, and lately through Facebook buy/swap/sell groups). However, there are times when I can’t find what I’m looking for through these channels so I will hit the shops to get what I’m after. When shopping this…

DIY Distressed Skinny Jeans

The holiday season and assignment marking has meant the blog has been neglected yet again, but to sign off for the year I wanted share one last DIYfor 2016.

#NoSpendber Challenge update (and an additional style challenge!)

I had every intention to blog about my progress every week for my #NoSpendber challenge but the second week of November was jam packed with marking so there was no chance.

Outfit: Oversized knit and jeans

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.

Shopping: Luxe for less

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.
