The Good, The Bad & The Ugly – Part 3

This is the third and final instalment in The Good, The Bad & The Ugly series. I probably could have written another 15 posts about of all the weird and wonderful things my mother and I have been hoarding, but I am trying to keep it to the most standout pieces – like this collection of (truly awful) Hawaiian shirts that my dad was reluctant to get rid of. By the end of the weekend we had gone through 6 large bags, 3 clothes racks and several boxes of clothes. Considering how many items we still loved, we were very restrained in how much came back into our wardrobes. We are now in a position to pack everything neatly back into boxes and bags ready to sell at Markets.

If you live in Melbourne keep an eye out for details of where and when we will be selling it all off!

Here are a few more of my favourite finds:

{wore this beanie around all day, was so cosy I had to take it home}

  

{We don’t do understated, this vest is the perfect example}

  

{my whole family are suckers for a good knit – this one is going to live with my brother}

  

{we also cleared out our dress ups box, there were some creepy things in there – witch fingers?!}

    

{something a little different for me, keeping these work overalls for painting}

  

{A complete vintage work outfit. Keeping, keeping, keeping!}

The Good, The Bad & The Ugly – Part 2

Day two of the clothing clear out was extremely productive. We sorted through five extra large bags filled with clothes and arranged them into sizes ready for selling – there also may have been a few things that snuck back into my bag to come home with me. I’m really enjoying hearing about how mum came to own all of these interesting pieces – especially the ones where I go “eww, thats awful” and mum goes “that was my good going out clothes”.

Here are a few of day two’s best finds:

{full black satin formal outfit in perfect condition}

{The fluffiest jumper – great for giving hugs}

{floral cotton blazer, such a shame it’s too big for me}

{Scarf with a zip, for those too important to knot}

{here’s a book to assist those who can’t afford the zip}

{Loving these fur trimmed gloves}

{free sunnies and bumbag from TV Week circa 1990}

{I kind of like this 80’s jumper, except for the fact I look like I have a huntsman on my chest}

{denim vest with galaxy AND rose print, so bad it’s good – KEEPING!}

Clean & Green

After a weekend at a music festival it’s fair to say I was a little dirty. Nothing feels better than having a long hot shower after three days of dancing in the dirt. I think I cleaned up pretty good. Simple and sleek on the bottom and a pop of colour on the top, it’s a fair cry from the cut-offs and crop tops I rocked on the weekend.

Outfit: Blazer (7Angels), Basque Top (Myer), Skirt (OpShop) & Heels (Big W)

Animal Fever

This is my second animal outfit in a row! It may be a little more subtle than yesterday’s leopard print post, but this top has a very cute horse print.
You will also notice that my room looks much cleaner than usual, this is because I move house this week. This may cause a few delays in posts and, very soon, a new setting for my daily picture. Lets hope I can keep the new place a little cleaner.

Outfit: Cue Blazer (hand-me-down), Shirt (Thailand, $3), Pants (OpShop, $1) & Heels (from mum)

Purple & Print

I am doing my best this week to get out of the awful rut I have been in. As well as putting together some slightly more inspired work outfits, I’m making an effort to keep my room cleaner, do my laundry more often, eat healthier and wash my face every night before bed. Just a few days in and I am feeling entirely cleansed and ready for a summer filled with backyard beers and music festivals.

Outfit: Cue Blazer (hand-me-down), Top (Savers, $3), Skirt (Thailand, $7) & Booties ($85).
