shoes: barkins // skirt: gifted // shirt: ally // blazer: dotti // belt: forever new

This gorgeous skirt was gifted to me by blog friend come real friend Alyssa. I have worn it on the blog before but when I put it on this time I seriously fell in love all over again. I love that it makes an otherwise traditional outfit more exciting. It has definitely inspired me to check out the op-shops (thrift stores) this weekend after not having gone for a few months.

I took a vintage dress home on the weekend for mum to take up and she just shook her head. She doesn't understand why I like wearing old clothes that my grandma would have worn. I have actually bought two dresses from op-shops that my nan owned I wish she had have kept them so I didn't have to buy them haha.

What is your favourite op-shop find or vintage item?

Oh no I just noticed all the postcards on the cupboard that are falling down, eeck need to go and fix that up.

  2. Thats so funny that you say that, I was looking through some old photos with my Nanna and she couldn't understand why I loved all her old clothes so much either, she kept insisting that clothes now were much much better lol.

    Love that skirt, I really like longer skirts at the moment and that that one is beautiful!

  7. I love the colours on that skirt!

    My favourite clothing find at an op-shop was this great brown knitted cardigan. I wore it so much until there was a huge hole in the seams. I don't usually have much luck with clothes but we did find an amazing vintage dinnerset once, I'm always hunting for more vintage kitchenware!
