Dressed By VinniesOctober the 26th was the first “Dressed by Vinnies” day and to celebrate I’ve done a quick post showing off some of my favourite twenty outfits on Instagram.
Unchained and Insane
Unchained and Insane
I’ve been op shopping ever since I was young, I love the thrill of pieces you could find,I love how cost effective it it, I love that my money is going towards a better cause rather than a giant company and I’m supporting local business. I also love #vinnies because Grandma was always on the St Vincent De Paul Society at church. Save the world and shop #slowfashion#thrift ♥️Instagram – @unchained_and_insane
Mum tums and pancake bums
MUMS – you know those days where you wake up with loads of motivation and you can feel your creative juices flowing and you want to bury yourself in your projects and not be interrupted and you just KNOW you’re going to achieve big things and feel productive AF…..then you’re reminded very quickly that your small, young and ridiculously adorable child wants to hang out with you and play ALL DAY. Well that was me today. Still, managed to perform a quick couple of costume changes and grab some snaps of more of my favourite #secondhand finds to celebrate #dressedbyvinnies day ? This time the whole outfit (underwear excluded because, well, yeah nah) Shoes are genuine leather and cost me a teeny $4, the wine coloured velvet jacket was love at first sight and cost me maybe around $6, dress by #quirkycircus was a steal at $8Instagram – @mumtumsandpancakebums

This Little Bowerbird
#DressedbyVinnies day and it’s not too late to get your #opshopped outfit on and snap a pic ? I have always found bargains at Vinnies Oak Flats on the South Coast. My Forever New skirt was just $4 and this floral number $4 also! I can never resist a floral and striped pattern clash ❤Instagram – @this_little_bowerbird

I had to save the cutest until last! Thank you to Vinnies for all that you do to help support disadvantaged people around Australia. Thank you also for giving us a way to help reduce, reuse and recycle our clothing, homewares, toys, books and almost everything else you can think of. I’m looking forward to next year’s Dressed By Vinnies Day!
