I remember the exact moment I fell in love with thrifting. I was at a friend's house and she pulled out a navy blue Chanel cropped blazer from her closet and my heart skipped a beat. It possibly stopped working when she told me she found it for 20 bucks in a Salvo's bargain bin. I've moved states since then and lost touch with her but the image of that blazer is mine forever.
I haven't been so lucky yet but I have collected a few fashion finds over the last few months. Clothes are tricky to sort through and I usually make for the books/ bric-a-brac sections but these beauties caught my attention.
A chocolate brown (in this dodgy pic it looks kind of khaki) tailored blazer still with tags! From the Fletcher Jones female 'Prophecy' collection it was just my size and sits nicely on top of my jeans so not quite cropped :) There's some subtle ruching at the shoulders which I love. RRP $269 (says the tag) but I took it home @ $14.95, Salvo's Coburg. WIN
When I saw these skinny leg jeans I had to stuff my fist in my mouth to stop myself from swearing. Bettina Liano Jeans are usually in the $150+ price range and these were in great condition. I was sold @ $10!!! Vinnies, Epping.
My best find of the month, Steve Madden black flats for a massive $5.99 @ Mill Park Savers. These are amazing. What's more amazing is that this whole outfit cost me less than a birthday cake (try doubling that @ Brunetti's, the things we do for chocolate mmm? :) Puts things into perspective doesn't it?
