I am ashamed to say that I often "lose" clothing in the black hole that is my wardrobe.
I imagine a Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe style wardrobe that somehow hides bits and pieces of clothing in a far off land but the truth is more likely that my unworn, unloved clothes fall from their cramped hangers, limping off to die in a dark corner surrounded by dust bunnies.
I rediscovered a couple of pieces in the abyss (and behind a chair and under the bed) and vowed that for a while I would try and wear all of my found pieces. Give them a little love. Show them a good time.
Aha! I knew I had a mustard yellow cardigan!
Yep, pretty chuffed with my matchy- matchiness!
I was feeling a bit dark and moody but am so happy I found this op shopped petticoat style skirt languishing at the bottom of the wardrobe.
Did someone say languishing? Yeah, this is what I do instead of doing homework and housework like I probably should. Lazy wench.
There is that same Dangerfield skirt again but at least I found this lovely teal op shopped cardigan at the bottom of a drawer to pair it with. And oh look! My velvet (possible knitting) bag goes perfectly.
And I did give them a good time. We had some great times, did some stuff.
Due to the unfortunate and untimely demise of my fave op shop (or happy place as I like to call it), Savers, I have had to venture further out and revisit some other thrifty havens.
And as if to console me in my desolate and bereft Saver-less state, these other shops have been really paying out and I have been finding some divine goodies to cramp my wardrobe even further.
I did it! I bought something in brown! Two things in fact! I know that with the warmer weather coming this amazing coat with its luscious fur collar is totally seasonally inappropriate but as we all know, you have to grab those bargains when you find them. And for $12 it was a complete bargain.
And don't you love the stunning bowls case. It even still has the owners name written in it and their rubbing cloth in the bottom.
I also found this amazing dress that needs a little tweaking at the same store as the coat.
Yep, in real life those colours are just as loud and crazy as in the pictures. Maybe louder.
You are definitely not going to miss me in this frock!
I can't wait to take this one in and then take her out.
Another vintage hand bag because I really needed another (like a hole in the head!).
And finally this gorgeous hat. Which I haven't quite figured out yet. Is this the front?
Or is this the front? Any ideas?
Actually I guess it doesn't really matter because I love it either way!
