Thrifty Fashionista Market

It is rare that I ever head out to the shops with the hope of being able to find an entire ensemble as I have imagined it in my head. I know that there are likely to be many hours spent trawling the stores looking for the perfect pieces, perhaps only finding one or two.  I have my favourite mainstream stores, Allannah Hill, Cue and...

Thrifty Fashionista Market at Westfield

Posted by in daily outfit, Vintage Remixed

  Happy Easter all! I’m still getting so much wear from this cute 1980s dress I purchased on eBay years ago. It may be the best $9 I ever spent and boy am I glad I’ve hung onto it.

I just loved the sunny colour and knew it would really pop. If you thought a splash of neon would give you some high-vis cred, you haven’t really seen...

Thursday. It’s finally warm!  Although the weather man says it will be short-lived, it is the light at the end of the winter tunnel and it feels great! I’ve been trying to shake the flu for two weeks now, and while I’m over the worst of it I just can’t seem to kick it. Having warm and sunny days certainly...
