Last month, I posted the top places where I go thrifting/opshopping. Today I have a huge thrift haul from a few weeks back when I realised I needed more winter pieces. These are more basic staple clothing items but I still wanted to share them because of how inexpensive I got them.
It’s been a long time since I posted a thrift/opshop haul here on the blog. As much as I love thrifting, I haven’t had the time to go or if I have, I’ve only bought one or two pieces that weren’t enough to feature in a post.
A few weekends ago, I made the time to go to my favourite Hospice shop and I got lucky because I came home with a bunch of thrifted goodies.
I have a mixture of clothing, books and a kitchen item so continue on if you want to know everything I got.
A few weeks ago, I checked out WE’AR’s latest Autumn/Winter collection WOLF. I went to their Ponsonby store on behalf of Thread. The full write-up of what happened at the launch is on Thread and you can read all about it here.
I took way too many photos during the launch so I thought I’d share them on here too. Most of the collection is now available online as well so I will include links.
A few weeks ago, I went to a Topshop/Topman clearance sale. I love sales so it was hard to pass this one up. My sister and I headed to Flying Fish in Ponsonby (the same place where they held the Chaos & Harmony sale last year) to check it out.
I left the sale with three things and that’s what this post is all about. I got one bag and two tops and click below for the full haul.
The day after Christmas Day is Boxing Day and usually every year I hit the sales. This time around, I was in the country side enjoying a much needed break from the city and technology.
We came back to the city a day after Boxing Day and I checked out the shops to see what else is still on sale. I managed to find a few things which are mostly clothing and jewellery. I didn’t go too crazy this time around but I like everything that I got.
It has been a while since I posted a thrift haul but I have thrifted a few times these past two months. I will break it down into two posts so this is the stuff I got from Savemart and Recycle Boutique. I’ll save the other one for another day because I don’t want this to be too long.
If you want to see what I got including the awesome dress above which I wore to NZ Fashion Week, click below.
I ended my NZ Fashion Weekend experience by going to NZ Fashion Weekend. NZ Fashion Weekend is open to the general public and getting tickets will give you access to the Designer Pop-up Sale. This was also previously called the Designer Garage Sale.
I was really excited to check it out this year and see what the fuss is about. I’ve heard great things about the sale and people getting amazing bargains.
I can tell you that it didn’t disappoint. I managed to have self control and only got two things from the sale.

The last New Zealand Fashion Week show I watched on Thursday was RUBY. It was the only off-site show I watched too and it was in a Wilson Carpark near K Road.
We had to be there early for the NZFW Backstage blog and when we got there, the two top levels of the car park was closed off for the show. It was un unusual place to have a runway but RUBY made it work.
See below for more runway photos.
The second show I went to was Miromoda. I could tell it was a much anticipated show compared to the first show of the day, Frances Jerard by the amount of well-known people in front row and people who wanted to get seats.
We managed to get in but there was a wait to get seated so I decided to be in the media pit along with the photographers. I was towards the right and my view was partially blocked by a pram but I made it work.
I still managed to get some runway shots. See below for more photos.
