Tip Shop Haul

I discovered the Darebin Resource Recovery Centre a few weeks ago and it instantly became my few favourite place to shop. 

It's a tip shop.

Basically tip shops are just piles of junk with hidden gems hidden inside awaiting you to find them. It's like a adult treasure hunt.

But not only do you get to find unusual amazing items, 
it reduces the amount of items that end up in land fill. 

My finds today !

ALL of their clothing excluding jackets are $1. ONE DOLLAR MY FRIEND.

This is actually a childs turtleneck, thankfully it fits ! 
The sleeves are a little short but that can be worked around. 

Oversized shirt - front + back

I love Australiana (the tackier the better), so this oversize polo is perfect.

I've kinda gotten addicted to layering.
I was never really big on earth tones but I find myself buying them more and more.

A (probably fake) Ralph Lauren polo.

And then these two jackets for $3 each. 

They don't just have clothes, but also every other household item you can imagine. 
Picked up some books for $2 each. 

I love the old style nature illustrations in encyclopedias. Had to have these two!

Six gothic tales - that cover got me. 

Today's outfit 

White top - Op Shop
Singlet - Secondhand off eBay
Shorts - Vintage
Boots - Vintage Dr Martens

My new favourite top, those earth tone stripes are just a dream.

Top + Skirt both secondhand


Sunday, November 15, 2015

Got this excellent skirt the other day, it's a little big but has an elastic back which I'm just going to replace with a smaller piece of elastic. 

Skirt - Vintage
Jumper - Secondhand (I chopped off the bottom to make it cropped)

Things to do on your day off instead of work that needs to be done :

Bake banana bread 

Repotted this baby that I found on the side of the road.

Buy 13 patterns from the op shop.
Itching to try some of these out,
She only charged me for 10 so the lot was $ 12.50

Photo from a wedding we went to last Saturday.

Found this amazing dress from an op shop for a steal at $25
(Complete with hideous matching 80s puffy jacket)
