Hello Thrifty Fashionistas!
This month I am presenting a series of Fashion related talks at Central Square Ballarat, in celebration of Spring Fashion Month!
I’m one down … with two to go and I’m having so much fun! Saturdays Presentation was all about ‘How to extend your wardrobe using Preloved garments with New seasons pieces. This was a great topic and I had a lot of fun showcasing some fantastic NEW spring garments with some fabulous PRELOVED Wardrobe Green items! I had the lovely Stephanie Wilson (@loveyourwardrobe) by my side once again, kindly assisting me in my endeavors by being my gorgeous model.
We showcased four Key Pieces from stores located within Central Square …
Dress – a gorgeous bone coloured midi length dress with pockets from Rockmans Fashion.
Top – a very pretty floral off the shoulder top from Suzanne Grae.
Pants – Pink and fabulous three quarter pant … lightweight for spring with beautiful ankle detailing from Noni B.
Jacket – a very versatile dusty pink bomber jacket from Just Jeans.
Each Key Piece was styled with some Preloved LOVE … adding accessories, such as a belt to the dress, necklace to the top and layering a tunic over the pants. Little changes using pre-existing fashion can help extend your wardrobe to double in size. Not everything has to be new … we all love hitting the shops as the new season fashion rolls in … but … don’t forget about those fabulous garments you bought last year or the year before that! A bit of mixing and matching can not only save you some pretty pennies … it can also give you a variety of looks from just a few new garments.
One of the easiest ways to extend your wardrobe is by adding some accessories. Accessories can be used to ‘dress up’ an outfit, add colour, add shape or just create a variety of looks using the same garments. The op shops are a fabulous place to source some very affordable and unique jewellery, scarfs and belts … show me your accessory finds and how you style them!
