So here’s the thing, the RSPCA Society Stores are dirt cheap. I’m talking $0.50 accessories, $2 jumpers and $10 pants. And some of those still had the tags attached.
This is the beautiful thing about charity op-shopping. They’re not in it to make a profit. Yes, they want to make money but they’re sole purpose is to give back to the community so high prices are not a factor.
My outfit today consists of a Sportsgirl knit and Massimo Dutti pants, two top quality pieces for under $10!
Knit: RSPCA Bibra Lake, $3
Pants: RSPCA Palmyra, $6
Oh. Umm. Uhhh. Ohhh. Polka dots huh? Yeah sorry, not really my thing. WELL GUESS WHAT YOUNG LADY? YOU DON’T HAVE A CHOICE!
That’s what went through my head when I walked into the RSPCA in Palmyra with my very well worn Restyle list of prompts. And so I picked this polka dot dress up, and I put it down and then I picked it up again and then I tucked it under my arm and told myself, you can make this work. And I did, by throwing a trusty black knit over the top and pairing with some Cons. I felt very skater chic.

This post is dedicated to Tony Faranda. The strange old man I bumped into in my grandparents front yard who vaguely knew they lived there and kept asking me in broken Italian who I was married to. I hope you enjoyed my shocking pink Zanthus knit as much as I do.
Knit: Zanthus Australia
Jeans: Cheap Monday
Sunglasses: Ray Ban
Everything about this outfit is perfection. The simplicity, the colours, the textures. Let the leather pants savings bender begin.
