I had the occasion recently to attend a beautiful wedding. My recent #onlyopshopsilk summer project provided me with the most elegant outfit: A stunning cream and brown two piece cocktail ensemble!
Designed by Stellini of Melbourne it really needs no elaborate description as you can see what a quality garment it is. It is 100% Shantung Silk. Luxurious to wear. $15.00 from a local Salvation Army Store. Shoes also courtesy of a ‘pre-loved fashion’ outlet.

I recently celebrated an evening with my darling husband and family for our 30th ‘Pearl’ Wedding Anniversary in preloved luminous silk.
Robe $15 from North Sydney Vinnies over grey ‘Silky’ pants $4 from Good Sammy’s. 100% silk ‘Gregory’ top was gifted to me rather than being sent to the Op Shop!!! New tan leather Court shoes $2 from Good Sammy’s (Cannington).
Honestly, why buy new clothes?
I am wearing something new though! You may spot it! 😉 After all, 30 years married does require a special little something to commemorate it.
My secret to a long and happy marriage is simple. LOVE!
I don’t mean ‘falling in love’ or romantic love – as important as that is in establishing and maintaining a beautiful reationship.
I mean ‘choosing’ love.
Every day. In every conversation. In every reply. In every attitude.
Choosing to be patient, kind, hopeful, not envious or boastful, not seeking to show ones-self up as better than the other and not resentful. Choosing love means choosing to be truthful, selfless and forgiving.

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.
