A great little cotton knit top I found at a tiny little hidden Op Shop. 

Jeans : Vintage
Belt : Op Shop

' $2 shop ' Haul !

I always try and shop at independent cheap shops instead of the huge chains like Kmart, Daiso etc. 
( Support independent business ! )
It's great if you have an area with a couple nearby because a lot of the products can range hugely between stores so you can compare their ranges and prices. 

Total : $ 19.50

My two favourite incense scents : $ 1.50 each

Organising products :

Carabiner for my keys : $ 1.50 

Clear container : $ 2.95

Perfect for some of my sewing supplies, I liked how it has slightly bigger compartments instead of just all tiny ones. 

Door hook rack : $ 7.50

I love this thing ! I put it on my bedroom door and hang my backpack and keys on it when I get home. The perfect way to store extra bags especially is you have a lot of backpacks like me.

Going to pick up another for the bathroom door as well. 

Socks : $ 2

Ring : $ 2.50 

Both adorable ! The ring is super oversized as well which is great.

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)
