Swop Shop // My Slow Fashion Splurge

It takes a lot for me to splurge on a bunch of amazing fashion pieces. I think it’s engrained deep in my head what IMG_5742the true consequences of purchasing and bringing things into my house/wardrobe/life are, especially since, to this day I am still dragging an overstuffed rack from market to market, selling the clothes I no longer want or wear.

That rack takes up significant space in the tiny one bedroom apartment I share with my fiancé, and having to look at it/bump into it on a daily bases has really forced the point across. I don’t NEED more things. However, if I happen to find something special, I’ve made a pact with myself to boot out a few things I no longer want (add ’em to there rack, donate them or post them for sale online) before allowing myself to make the purchase.

Having done a quick wardrobe re-jig to restore my fashion karma I am now happy to share with you the four amazing items I purchased yesterday from Swop in West End (if you haven’t been to visit them yet, I HIGHLY recommend it). The total came to $115, more than I usually spend, however considering how most of the pieces can be mixed and matched I’m pretty thrilled! Big shout out to Jamie for getting up early and being the ultimate instagram husband.

Opp Shop Find of the Week!

What an absolute score… spotted these babies out of the corner of my eye whilst shopping in the Lifeline Charity Shop (Vintage Revival) in Annerley – couldn’t turn them down when I realised they were MY size and only $22! Mint condition, not a scratch, originally from Wittner. Sometimes it pays to treasure hunt…
