Way of life


Along with changing the name, I also wanted to give a new purpose to the blog. From now on, I solemnly swear to buy nothing new at full price over the amount of $10. The majority of anything sartorial will be secondhand. Anything that isn't secondhand will be something I already own or bought on sale. 

 There are a couple of reasons behind this. I don't know about you guys but I keep up with my fair share of fashion blogs and it is so so easy to get sucked into the world of consumerism. I think the peer pressure to be constantly on trend and updating your wardrobe is so apparent in the blogging world. It's unrealistic to constantly be shopping and spending so much money on clothes. In my opinion anyway. However, you could constantly shop and not spend much money by buying secondhand! Which leads to my second reason. I am currently unemployed. Unemployed = zero dollars. Buying secondhand is my best option to still regularly partake in my fav hobby. 

 Pictured above is my op shop haul from this week. Altogether everything cost $9. Not bad for two dresses, one pair of fluro shorts, two pairs of shoes, a fantastic straw hat and a bow tie still in it's box!
