OOTD: Floral Dress

it has been a while since I’ve posted an outfit and today’s one fits with the current spring season. I want the weather to get better soon so I can start wearing short-sleeved dresses again and have my legs bare for once.

This outfit post features one of my latest thrift finds. This dress was from Recycle Boutique.

OOTD: Kenzo Dress

This week is New Zealand Fashion Week and I’ll be attending my first show this morning. In light of this week’s fashionable events, I thought I’d post this Kenzo dress I got from Savemart because it’s one of my trendy ‘fashun’ things in my closet.

I absolutely love this but scoping out photos on social media and other blogs, it seems like black is the colour of choice of fashion week attendees. I’m unsure whether to wear this bright dress in the next four days yet so I’ll see how that goes.

I’ve actually styled this in two different ways. See below for more photos.

Collective Thrift Haul

One weekend, my sister and I really wanted to go out of the house but since we were over going to the mall, we checked out Savemart instead as we haven’t been there in a long time.

We didn’t get a lot of things from Savemart but I got lucky finding the Kenzo Paris dress above. I also got a few things from Recycle Boutique and an op shop close to my house.

See below for everything I’ve thrifted lately.

Backpacks and Sneakers

I’m off to Melbourne today (yay!) and a few weeks ago, while planning for it, I decided to get a backpack and sneakers.

The three things in this post are not something I’d wear or use often. I haven’t used a backpack since I went to school which was over 5 years ago. I never liked backpacks either except for my polka dot Jansport back which was cool at the time.

Anyway, the reason why I decided to get a backpack is mainly for this holiday. I only intended to get one backpack too but see below as to why I ended up with two different ones.

Thrifting/Op shopping Tips

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure

I have been asked multiple times on my “secret” to op shopping. For those that don’t know, thrifting or op shopping is when you go shopping at thrift stores, second-hand shops or charity shops. It has also been popularised by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis with their song Thrift Shop. If you haven’t heard of that song, you may have been living under a rock.

So basically, you are looking at pre-loved/second hand items that have mostly been donated by others. I am a serial op shopper. I am obsessed with it (as you can tell from my thrift hauls) and I love the thrill of finding a great pieces for bargain prices.

Opshop Haul: Hospice

This is my third opshop haul on the blog and it definitely won’t be the last! I LOVE opshopping so much. It makes me happy when I find great pieces are bargain prices.

This is from my last opshopping trip and I visited my favourite Hospice North Shore shop.

Opshop Haul: SaveMart

My previous opshop haul was from Recycle Boutique. This time around, I checked out my nearest SaveMart in hope of getting some good stuff.

SaveMart can be a hit and miss. It is a huge opshop and the amount of stuff inside can be overwhelming. I could easily spend more than 2 hours in there if I go through every single rack but it will also give someone a headache.

For this opshopping trip, I didn’t have anything in mind and I managed to get a few things. I was even lucky enough to find a Forever New dress!

See below for further details.
