...30 Days of Restyle! I could not be more excited about being a part of the Perth Fashion Festival's Restyle campaign with Lotterywest. They've got a group of ten ragtag Perth bloggers together and issued us with the challenge of having an op shopped-only August, to show y'all just how easy it is to dress stylishly while supporting a good cause and not going broke!
Basically our job is to spend an awful lot of time in an awful lot of op shops buying an awful lot of clothes so that for thirty days in August we have thirty unique, op shopped outfits. What a drag, right? JOKE! So be sure to check back every day in August for a brand new (but not too new) outfit. Also involved is Kim of Blonde Suburbia, Bonnie of Bonnie Friday, Tara of Gin in a Teacup, Steph and Trish of Le Fanciulle, Rachelle of Love From Shell, Heidy of Love Thy Muse, Sharon of Sass & Spice, L of Peanut Moonbeam Knickers and Ally of The Vintage Valley. What a bunch of babes! And by the end of the month we'll collectively have a monstrous 300 outfits! Can you handle that much thrifty goodness? I know I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.
And how great is that photo up the top there? I think it just might be my favourite photo ever taken of me. Mad thanks to the wonderful and talented team who made us all look and feel so fine - photographer Penny Lane, make up artist Lauren Wood and her ladies, and the hair crew from Renos on St Quentin for L'Oreal.
