Restyle LOTD – Early blossoms

August 10, 2012


Top: St Vinnie’s – $7
Skirt: Good Sammy’s – $12.50
Boots: Red Cross – $30.00
Necklace: Good Sammy’s – $6
My own: Jacket (Three Floor Fashion), Bag (Alexander Wang)

It’s funny how after seeing these pictures, I’ve come to like this outfit. The skirt and top aren’t ‘on trend’. Nor are they old enough to be vintage but wearing it with some items which are bold and loud somehow makes it all come together.

Do you wear flowers in winter? I’m not sure if this is a fashion faux pas, but since we are approaching spring in Australia, I doubt I’ll be offending anyone.

Anyway, does anyone else find there is this general misconception that op shopping and vintage shopping are one and the same? There are some op shops which specialise in vintage gear (e.g. Retro Vinnies etc), but most op shops are full of clothes which aren’t of a style or age to be classified as vintage. Don’t get me wrong, you may pick up a vintage item from a general op shop but you will have to look a lot harder compared to going to a speciality vintage store or a market.

So if you are like me and you don’t suit the ‘head-to-toe’ vintage look, you should still give op shopping a try as you won’t know what special item you may find…vintage or not…
