I realised this morning once I had thrown my outfit together that everything except my undies and bra were all second hand and had cost me bugger all. If I had been insane enough to have bought all new and full retail, then I would be living in another neighborhood and considered well off!!
My outfit consisted of a Jean Jones Dress (NZ label) with a Trelise Cooper (NZ Designer) dress over the top. The top dress would have retailed for hundreds of dollars but lucky old me picked it up for a sweet $20. Dusky pink mesh tie front top and Rieker shoes completed the look. My necklace of precious stones set in sterling silver was from trade me. This whole lot of second hand goodness cost me less than $50, and the smile I threw in for free.
I do not do back on photos for exactly this reason!!
I was given this gorgeous bunch of flowers from a friend today as a thank you for taking photos at her birthday on the weekend. They are all from her garden and are just so beautiful. Not only colourful, they smell amazing!!
This is a true story so make the most of each day you wake up!!
