Friday - Flirty Floaty, with a bit of Fun Funk, and Pink Punk

Tonight I was home before it got dark.  This is a significant event because it meant that I could have a Friday outfit photo shoot in daylight.  

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
