Something Old, Something New

It was a typical Melbourne summer’s day at 35 degrees when I went op shopping and naturally purchased two jackets. One can’t resist the lure of op-shop prices and vintage delights that are abound with much potential, particularly me. I found an ex-Topshop blazer for a mere $10, and a pastel-pink tweed coat at $12, so how do you expect me to say no to that? I regularly graze at op shops because not only is it incredibly affordable for a not-so-cashed-up student like me, but it’s always a welcome challenge to find old gems and combine them with the new trends.

I grasped at the chance to wear the blazer before Melbourne experiences their continual, sweltering temperatures, and matched it with new Witchery black high-waisted shorts, an aquamarine beaded top and new black strappy heels. Combining the old and the new always produces a fresh outfit, and I love my new shorts because they can be worn for dressy occasions and are supremely comfortable.
