op shop goodness


Lately I have had the most amazing luck at the op shops, which has resulted in me having more new clothes than I can keep up with – which is no bad thing. :) I am still wearing, altering or waiting-for-winter-to-wear-things from my haul before Christmas. However, an hour at Savers (on a Saturday, no less) turned up several vintage blouses (pussy bows! In my size!), pencil skirts (Laura Ashley wool! Perfect colours!) and three great pairs of shoes, including – gasp – my Holy Grail: red peep toe platforms.

Goodness me. I need a sit down.

ooh cute shoes. Isn't it funny the seasons of luck to be had with op shopping? Sometimes I think it feels like a hunting sport.. maybe a bit like men who like to go fishing.

Eri said...

They are divine! Amazing find.
They look very small, which is a major problems for me with vintage shoes...
Thanks so much for visiting me.
;) see you soon

Great op shop finds make me so happy. I found a yellow short-sleeved cardigan a couple of months ago that has become a wardrobe staple!
