On the topic of recycled fashion contests, another thrifty Australian fashion competition popped up a few weeks ago, sponsored by Salvos Stores.  "Become The Face of Salvos Stores"
To enter, you need to photograph yourself wearing an outfit consisting of a Salvos purchased garment, and post your pic on the Salvos facebook page.  There will be one $500 Salvos voucher awarded to a person in each of the following states: NT, SA, VIC, WA, TAS.  The person with the most votes (likes) wins.  More details here.

Now while I can't enter the BragYourBestBuys thrifty fashion contest because it's run on Recycled Fashion, I can enter the Face of Salvos Stores contest. 

Here is my entry:

Kids Gap Jacket: (altered sleeves) Red Cross Frankston
'Granny' Dress: Op shop, Cheltenham, (refashioned)
Hat: 10c, United Church Op Shop Carrum
Boots: Vintage, UK

My son:
Jacket, Gifted
Hat: Cotton On, Gifted
Big Pocket Trousers: made myself, using fabric from St Chad's Op Shop, Chelsea
Gum boots: Salvos Chelsea Heights
Elmo bag; Salvos Chelsea Heights

If I happen to gain the most votes, and win for my State (VIC), I will sharing my win with a dear friend, a Mummy of four little kids, who is going through chemo treatment at the moment for breast cancer.  If you happen to be on facebook, and would like to vote for my son and I, you can do so by clicking like on this image.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Finally, for Stateside readers, the Thrift Store Runway contest runs every month, with five cash prizes awarded per month for the best thrifted outfit as voted by the judges of the site. More details here.

All the more reason to buy second hand fashion.
