We did all of our op-shopping in Kilbirnie and Newtown - unfortunately where I actually live in Wellington Central there is only one op-shop and it is well picked over. So when it's time to go op-shopping I need to get out of the central city.
Here were my finds for the day - in no particular order:
I bought gold shoes and they even have a heel! If you follow my blog you'll know that I usually run screaming from heels but I couldn't resist these. I wore them to a play on Saturday night and I didn't end up with nasty blisters or sore feet. I won't wear them to work as I have a stand up desk and they aren't the kind of shoes you can stand up in all day. However they will be rad for special nights out. Also did I mention they are gold? Amazing!
This dress was included with the shoes for free as it had a small stain on the hem - I was thinking that I may have to look up some kind of intensive stain removal techniques on the internet to remove the stain. I was even considering shortening it to get rid of the stain.
The I washed it and when it came out of the machine the stain had disappeared - turns out it just needed a good wash.
Considering wearing this wee frock on Christmas day! I think its super cute, but it is made from very weird fabric. It's a little like the kind of fabric a light raincoat would be made from. I am totally cool with that though - it rains a lot in New Zealand so its an all weather dress.
ROSE PRINT SKIRT
Under normal circumstances I think I would run screaming from a "rose print skirt" - it brings up images of pale pastels and sickly sweet patterns.
But this rose print skirt is pretty rad! It's a wee bit Gothic - I think it will look pretty great with my doc martins and fishnets.
It's a little bit crumpled in the pictures as it had just finished drying - unfortunately it looks like the kind of skirt that MAY need ironing, which means I may only own it for a short time as I am not friends with the iron.
HEART BUTTON TOP
This is a simple little top with a slightly vintage feel - when I am sick of wearing it I think I will cut off the buttons and sew them on something else. The buttons are the main reason I bought this top.
*RAWR* ANIMAL PRINT CROSS FRONT DRESSI have been trying to mix up my style a little bit lately and get out of always wearing the same type of frock. This isn't my usual style but I really liked it on so I thought I would give it a go - I'll have to use it in a outfit post soon!
Well that was Saturday's op-shopping - I also went to a clothes swap on Sunday so it was a weekend of clothes. I'll post photos of the goodies I got at that event soon xoxox
