In an attempt to purchase useful things, here are my thrift finds for the week.
1. Gloves for winter $3 from Savers. Which happen to be quite pretty, no?
And look, they match my Oroton Glomesh bag found last week!
2. A hat for winter. Because I lost my last one. $1.50 purchased during my op shop tour yesterday..
And did you spot the little trinket next to it? What do you think it is? Spotted under a glass counter of All Saints Op Shop in Sandringham, I thought it might be a chunky ring?
But no, it is in fact a scarf ring, isn't it pretty? All for a big fat 50c.
3. A pillowcase $1 from Savers. Ok, so this isn't really needed. I bought it to see if I could turn it into a top for my son to replicate the galaxy inspired Munster t-shirt I saw last week. We'll see how I get on with that.

Now, for challenge I have set myself. Readers, you may remember I blogged about the Free Fashion Challenge. Fashion addicts from around the world, are taking part in the Free Fashion Challenge, in an agreement to stop buying new clothes for one year.
In an attempt to address my own cumbersome wardrobe, I have taken the pledge not to buy any clothes, not for an entire year, but for three months. No thrift purchased garments, no underwear, socks, or even fabric to make clothes, and not accepting gifts of any new garments. No bags, shoes, belts, etc.. for three months. Endeavouring to refashion what I have, sew from my existing fabric stash, and make do, I will be blogging in my attempts to adhere to my pledge.. wish me luck!
