My #onlyopshopsilk summer continues. Veronika Maine Silk shirt $4!! Pants $2 (not silk😐)!
The best Boxing Day sale in Perth…was at local thrift stores ‘Good Sammy’s’ – 50% off all recycled clothing & ‘Salvation Army – Salvos Stores’ – 50% off if you have a Salvos card! This card is like a loyalty card but for the Op Shop!!! I love contributing to and wearing sustainable fashion.
My question is why buy everything new? It is great stewardship to live simply by – earning all that we can, giving all that we can, saving all that we can and living on the rest! #givesavelive
Well, I think my #onlyopshopsilk collection is complete. Over my visits to the local op shops (thrift stores) this month I have purchased:
20 x silk tops (mostly 100% silk)
3 x silk dresses
3 x silk kimono style tops (one featured in previous post)
3 x silk skirts …
And 1 x evening/cocktail skirt & top set.
Now on the look out for some silk pants to really say it’s done!!!
Cost of each piece ranged from $2.25-$15.00 with the average $4.00. Why buy new?
I LOVE Op Shopping (Thrift Shops). I’m addicted. I get great satisfaction finding a treasure. My challenge this summer is to buy only silk. It’s luxurious and is cool during our hot summer. I’ll document as I go.
SILK evening gown $12 teamed with Seed singlet top $4 & ASOS jeans $5
Same jeans paired with bare shoulder SILK top $4.
