I loved wearing this outfit today. The crepe pleated skirt dates from the 1980s or 1990s and the sequin sweater is modern and I found it at the Presbyterian Support Shop in the 50 cent section. As well as the turquoise bangles I am wearing a watch and a ring in similar colours.
Flirty Floaty skirt is mid length but I am thinking of shortening it (well from the top/waist area).
It only looks ankle length because the photographer is very tall.
It was a little bit girly and floaty and I felt a bit flirty and naughty. And yes, that is blue in my hair. Blue hair chalk which is a cheap way to add a splash of colour.
For a more funky look, this is what I wore in the school holidays on one of several op shop expeditions with 12yo.
Cord skirt (Me Made), tights and sneakers (retail),
leather jacket, black top, cardigan and beads (thrifted)
I think this was the day 12 yo said she did not want to go to a particular thrift store because it smelled. I persuaded her. Within a few seconds of entering the store she was rabid with excitement as she spotted a pair of Converse sneakers (which fitted her) for $5. She was a very happy girl.
Another day I decided to wear pink and punk. It was grey day so I wanted to wear pink and I realised that I had not yet worn my new plastic boots. The pink Osti dress is too shabby for work now, but I thought it was perfect with the sequin sweater, skulls and roses leggings and zebra boots.
If I recall correctly, the Osti dress was $2, the leather jacket $8 and the sweater 50 cents.
So, three outfits in one post. I am going to the Vintage Round Market tomorrow - after going on a short excursion train-trip with Dear H and 12 yo. I hope there will be opportunities to take lots of photos. Computer is holding up okay, so I aim to post again this weekend. Hope you are all having a great Friday evening, xx Penny-Rose
