Restyling.....

Today along with my sister and a good friend we headed out on a day of trawling some op shops.......

In all we managed 5 with some lunch thrown in the middle and managed to be back to collect kids on  almost on time.


The mission for me was to find some gems that I could REinvent.....


Unfortunately those red boots were a touch too large....
I did however buy a pair of shoes and a couple of skirts that will undergo some transforming soon.

The things you can find when you have the time to "really trawl"....

I never cease to be amazed at the sheer amount of treasures that are sitting inside these stores......

Barbie anyone??????
 

In the second last shop we visited....I was excited to pick up this flyer on the counter.....


Now I am not becoming a fashion blog by any means....but my recent flirting with REinventing has seen me keenly become interested in what I can do with something
pre loved that may not necessarily be instantly obvious.

So I have been investigating some local blogs that are taking the "30 Day Restyle Challenge"

Check them out here.

Maybe you could try the ...

"Buy nothing new for the month of August!"

I intend to keep working on a number of projects in progress.
I will share as I go.
