Possible why when I'm off out op shopping (thrifting) I'm drawn to the not so casual.
One of my local shops Family Life in Chelsea had this 80s strapless floral number - 50% off? Yes please, pretty peachy pink please! Great shop with a boutique feel but still reasonable (op shop) prices and the music always makes me happy, think Rat Pack.
This was bought on the Melbourne Op Shop Tour I went on hosted by Erica of Recycled Fashion that was featured on Coxy's Big Break last weekend, yes I can be seen but I kept my mouth shut for fear of saying something like "Radical", "Down with the kids" or "Da Bomb". I have a habit of making an idiot of myself when there's a big enough audience and national telly was too dangerous! It's a gorgeous cotton maxi dress that I think is stunning. It was bought from Vinnies and had 20% off with an extra 10% discounted because we were on the tour.
Finally this is such a great colour and really timeless I think and also bought on the Op Shop tour in Brighton
It's great to see adorable clothes being donated to charity and people valuing Op Shops and the reuse of goods in general. I've always wanted to volunteer but with having a toddler committing to a set time has been an issue. I have now managed to raise over $1,000 for the Salvation Army by listing clothes purchased from their Chelsea Heights Shop on Ebay - latest listing here including a Trelise Cooper skirt on at 99c!

Happy Op Shopping this weekend and Happy Mothers Day to those celebrating in Australia x Vicky
