I never relied on expensive, designer label pieces to look good. (well decent for that matter) Here is a perfect example - I picked up this bright yellow knit for $1.66 to be exact! Yep, one day I happened to walk into a local op-shop and they had a sale so to speak - any 3 ladieswear items for $5! I couldn't believe it! With a growing number of opshops and vintage boutique stores marking up their goods as close to the prices of actual 'new' fashion chain pieces, you can't help but to feel ripped off during some thrifting adventures. Nevertheless, there's always that one bargain around the corner you haven't come across yet! .... Like this one! ;)
I also bought a navy well-fitted blazer and a cool baseball jacket that I just couldn't pass up on... (will most likely share in future posts)
People say, you dress according to how you feel. Being a creative individual, I like to break this concept down by using colour theory. Yellow is a feel-good, positive and most of all an optimistic colour. I can't help but notice the character Ariadne in the movie Inception wearing a yellow scarf in a "preparation" scene leading up to the mission. You could notice she was projecting more confidence and faith in the mission to be successful. For my case, I guess the clear-sky weather was a much needed pick-me-up. Plus, who doesn't love a pop of yellow?!
The necklace I'm wearing is one I picked up from this winter's Finders Keepers Markets. It is designed by Anton Van Maanen from Fold Studio, part of a collaborative design group hailing from Melbourne. I love it's eye-catching isometric design! Everyone has to stop and take a second glance at it.
Wearing: yellow knit (thrifted), necklace (Fold Studio), skinny jeans (Nobody), boots (vintage) and leather bag.
These photos were taken by my sister Kassandra, who takes most of my outfit photos. If you follow me on Twitter, I took her to visit Glebe Markets for the first time despite the numerous times I've been. It was beautiful day to be outdoors but we both made sure we were all rugged up to beat the chill of the winds. Here are a few snaps of what she wore:
Here are some amazing feather earrings one stall was selling at Glebe Markets. I was in complete awe at the sight of them. Each constructed with unique feathers, suede trimmings and eclectic charms, it was quite difficult to choose a favourite! There were also other suede/leather necklaces on hand and even a statement horseshoe necklace. Brilliant!
As always, a yummy serve of gozleme saved our appetites! You cannot go to Glebe and not eat a tasty gozleme.
Afterwards we went to Newtown to watch Snowtown.. which did not leave me feeling all-smiles like I was earlier in the day. But with one glance at my bright yellow jumper, it did eventually elevate my mood bit by bit :)
Hope everyone's weekend was swell?! What did you get up to?
