I’ve started op-shopping in my lunch breaks. I get a long lunch break, and by the time I’ve scoffed my home-made lunch there’s usually a while to go before it’s time to head back to the office. So I’ve been sneaking in a cheeky op-shopping trip in the middle of each week. So far they’ve been very profitable.
About two weeks back I spotted this sweet 70’s vintage frock in my local Salvos. I have another dress that’s a similar cut with the same sheer sleeves in a floral print. I wear that dress all the time, so when I spotted it’s slimmer-cut cousin in a painterly print I couldn’t resist it.
Last Monday was a struggle to get dressed. I’d been sick with a cold all weekend and the last thing I wanted to do was head into work. So I pulled this beautiful dress out of the cupboard and shimmied into it. The bright pops of colour helped to perk me up, and the cut is so comfortable it was almost like wearing my PJs to work!
I am wearing:
– Vintage 70’s dress (thrifted)
– Leona Edminson fishnet tights
– Nine West patent leather heels
– Silver hoop earrings
– Vintage bird belt (which belonged to my dear friend’s grandmother)
– Beaded flower ring (gift from my mother)
This flippy, floaty dress was just the thing to keep my spirits up (even though my nose was still blocked and I had practically no voice)
I’m looking forward to rocking this baby with bare legs and chunky wedges when the weather starts to heat up. And I think she’d look divine paired with some huge bangles and sandals too. What a brilliant find to come across during my lunch break!
Do you do any thrift-shopping in your lunch break? Have you found any bargains lately?
