2013 Week 45: My Wednesday Style Collective.....

I'm rather excited about this weeks style collective because both outfits featured were five dollar garage sale buys recently, that I'm really chuffed with.

Last weekend I didn't need to look far for inspiration for the perfect dress for a new profile pic, when I picked up this dress at a garage sale for five dollars. As soon as I saw it I knew it would be perfect, it could nearly be my blogs uniform the colours and floral compliment my whole blog design, I think that's pretty damn cool. Oh and I'm totally digging that it's a button through dress and has pockets.....win-win in my books.

Dress - 1970's Kenwall - Garage Sale
Shoes - retail

There's not much I need to say about this second outfit, I'm sure you'll know why and if you don't know what I'm talking about, I'm talking about GREEN. I picked up this pair of old school Sportscraft pants at a garage sale off a women who used to own a vintage clothing store and was off-loading everything for five dollars a piece. Funny story about the pants, is that the vibrant colour (pic isn't showing their true vibrancy damn it) has been a proven distraction to door to door sales people. Let's just say they've been a point of conversation so much so their sales pitches have gone out the window.
Sportscraft GREEN Pants - garage sale
Sheer Floral Blouse - op shopped
Belt - op shopped
Shoes - retail

So tell me what's the craziest thing a door to door sales person has caught you wearing? Not that my pants are that crazy, at least not by my standards, perhaps by others, but that just goes to show it takes very little shock some people.

I have only just started to wear pants after being a skirts/dresses person all my life. I really like the style of your pants as they are so modest. They must be so comfortable to wear
