I was lucky enough to be invited along to the Wardrobe Warriors Market that was on this Sunday, held inside the Hibiscus Sports Centre at Mt Gravatt. I was one of a whole bunch of early risers, rugged up against the cold morning chill and setting up our market stalls for a day of selling and fantastic fashion bargains.
My challenge was to put together an outfit for $20 – how could I say no? After doing a few loops around, I managed to dig out two awesome pieces; 1. A denim jacket with kooky arm holes (Bitching and Junkfood, original tag still attached!) for only $5! Next, I found a gorgeous printed shift dress (The Fifth Label) for $10. With my remaining $5, I nabbed three quirky jewellery pieces. Put it all together, layering over a basic black turtleneck and teamed with my favourite boots and… voila!
I highly recommend this market if you’re wanting to clear out your wardrobe and make some quick cash, super well organised and all the neighbouring sellers were really friendly. If you’re wanting to shop – get there early to grab the best pieces, I was blown away by how much there was to choose from, with loads of pieces around $2 – $10.
Lauren the organiser is a Wardrobe Warrior of sorts herself, and we had a great chat about her passion for more sustainable and ethical shopping options. I take my hat off to her, she’s created a great thing and I hope it keeps growing!
