Some recent op shop scores

So I've been pretty naughty lately...I've bought sooooo many clothes. In my defense, they have all been second hand, and I've mostly purchased clothes for work as I was seriously short on smart blouses.

It's only Wednesday today and so far this week I've been to 5 op shops and spent way more than I'd like to admit.

Here are some of my favourite purchases from this week, with a few old ones thrown in.

I've been looking for a yellow blouse for ages to go with a couple of skirts I have. This one was from Lifeline and looks great on.

I've been trying to steer clear of non-tailored garments as they don't flatter my body shape, but I couldn't resist the colour and neckline detail of this one.

This is my favourite. I love the ruffles! I wore it to work yesterday. It's a little on the small side but I can deal with it.

I found this cool Quuiksilver ruffled blouse in St Vinnies on Monday. The skirt was a buy from a few months ago, and it needed a bit of doctoring to make it wearable. It doesn't flatter Jane very much but it looks good on me.

I got this skirt from St Vinnies the other day too. It's lined with satin so will be good to wear with tights when it's colder. The blouse is one that I made- finished it the other day.

I can't tell you how much I love this skirt. It's so flattering- gives me curves where I have none. the knitted top was a buy from last year. It was $3 and has the most gorgeous blingy buttons.

Cute knitted top from St Vinnies. The bow is detachable.

I bought these two dresses yesterday. They were much more than I would normally pay for second hand clothing ($15 and $10 respectively) but they are in perfect condition, fit me perfectly, and will be great for work. They're really well made and fully lined.

I love this skirt. It's a funky printed corduroy with satin lining.

Lastly, a pair of Sachi wedges. I think I will wear them to work tomorrow.
