Top 4 Expensive Children’s Clothing Items To Always Thrift & Save…..

Top 4 Expensive Children’s Clothing Items To Always Thrift & Save…..

All my children have a mix of vintage, modern and thrifted clothing and accessories in their wardrobe and in the time I have been a parent clothing them has been far less expensive then you would think. In fact in the nearly seven years since Cohen was born I have spent a fraction of what most would think to cloth three children in clothes, shoes and accessories.  I  always accept an offer to look through hand me downs, I shop bargains and I always, ALWAYS look for clothing for them when op shopping. So I’m going to let you in…

5 Thrifty Tips for Clothing Children

5 Thrifty Tips for Clothing Children

In the time I have been a mumma  (nearly 7 years) I have spent a fraction of what most would expect to clothe three children. We have all heard people say that it costs a fortune to have kids and there is the constant expense of replacing shoes and clothes they wear out, get soiled or damaged. Clothing your baby, toddlers, children and even yourself doesn’t have to cost a fortune, if you plot and plan and are always on the look out. HERE IS HOW Hand Me Downs  When you’re having a baby or you have young kids, it’s…

Day 14 of #newyearnewstyle with Vinnies Victoria…..

Today is the final day of the #newyearnewstyle challenge with Vinnies Victoria. With today being Valentines Day it’s quite fitting to say that I have LOVED taking part in this challenge with Erica from Recycled Fashion. I love pulling together my outfits each and every day regardless of being on a style challenge. But the #newyearnewstyle challenge has certainly made me think about making the most of what you’ve got, when you’re taken down to ten clothing items for fourteen days. It really takes the distractions away and focuses your attentions on the possibilities there are with only what you…

Day 13 of #newyearnewstyle with Vinnies Victoria….

Woohoo it’s the weekend, we made it and hopefully you’re relaxing and enjoying some down time. I certainly am, after celebrating my father in-laws 70th birthday last night, champagne and wine flowed and whilst there are no sore heads here there are weary tired ones.  So there’s a lot of quiet and stillness going on with the kids playing with Lego and play-dough whilst periodically watching our new fish in their tank. Today’s combination is pretty relaxed and although you saw me don the denim skirt and polka dot tee earlier this week, I changed it up a little today…

Day 12 of #newyearnewstyle with Vinnies Victoria….

We’re on the home stretch of the #newyearnewstyle challenge with Vinnies Victoria. It’s been a lot of fun joining in with Erica from Recycled Fashion. Let me tell you about today’s outfit combination. I have had a very intense morning and when I say intense it’s not been in an enjoyable way. To save you the details (of which are epic) let’s just say when it came to getting dressed this morning, I literally grabbed two items from my ten pieces from this challenge and threw them on. Thank goodness the combination works and is light and floaty whilst I…

Day 11 of #newyearnewstyle with Vinnies Victoria….

There are three days left in the #newyearnewstyle challenge with Vinnies Victoria. I’m surprised by how easy I have actually found the challenge with only ten clothing pieces to choose from and style over fourteen days. Some would think that the limited choice and options would be cause for the repeat of outfit combinations. But I daresay I could go for a few days more beyond the challenges end date with some interesting and stylish combinations. Here I am Day 11 of 14. Wearing: Ditsy Print Summer Maxi Dress with Slogan Tee previously thrifted. Accessories: Head Scarf thrifted and all…

Day 10 of #newyearnewstyle with Vinnies Victoria……

I said it yesterday that this #newyearnewstyle challenge with Vinnies Victoria and Recycled Fashion was making me focus on finding creative styling combinations to keep me interested. Well today I’ve pulled an old trick of mine out of the bag to really mix things up. Today I have taken my ditsy print maxi wrap skirt and styled it into an unconventional strapless wrap dress and cinched it all in at the waist with yet another trusty thrifted belt from my collection. In my earlier twenties I used to wear skirts as strapless dresses and tunics all the time back in…

Day 9 of #newyearnewstyle with Vinnies Victoria….

Sequin sparkly dots on polka dots, why not? As we move further into the second week of the #newyearnewstyle challenge with Vinnies Victoria and Recycled Fashion, I’m having to get more creative with my outfit combinations as I like to have something different to keep my interest going. In other words the challenge is forcing me to look at my ten selected items and put combinations together that I haven’t previously seen potential for, possibly due to having so many options to choose from in my everyday wardrobe when not on this style challenge. So here we are Day 9…

Day 8 of #newyearnewstyle with Vinnies Victoria…..

Have you been following the #newyearnewstyle style challenge with Vinnies Victoria and Recycled Fashion. I’ve been playing along since day one when I pulled together my ten clothing items for fourteen days on the fly on the very first day. We are into the second week of the challenge and it will finish on the February 14th, so I’m starting to get into creative styling combinations with my ten chosen garments. So to kick the week off with some cheer I went with my yellow cotton tank dress from day 4 (which was a rather popular combination on Instagram and…

Day 7 of #newyearnewstyle with Vinnies Victoria……

We are seven days into the #newyearnewstyle challenge with Recycled Fashion and Vinnies Victoria. If you’ve been checking in, you’ll know that yesterday’s installment to the style challenge was shared on Instagram and Facebook as we were road tripping and fossicking for treasures at the Toowoomba Swap Meet. The Toowoomba Swap Meet is one of the biggest swap meets in Australia held every year and attended my tens of thousands of buyers and thousands of vendors, there quite literally is something for everyone to hunt down.  Taking up the entire Toowoomba Showgrounds there is a lot of dirt and dust…
