BNNM ootd.2

Hello Readers!
Here is another BNNM outfit. During this month I am not buying anything new, but I am also opting not to wear any new purchases (most of which are items from my recent US trip). So this ensures that I am wearing my old and opshop/thrifted items and therefore I can share with you what I have found recently.

I am a total sucker for polka dots. Something about wearing them makes me feel like I have be swept back to the 1950's. This skirt also has a matching top (I love finding old suits because you get two different outfits out of them. I don't usually wear them together but I find they are bold enough to stand out as the feature of the outfit).

I have also found some amazing clip on earrings! I must remember to take some photos of them because they are (well I think they are any ways) really cool!

I have found some really amazing stuff in the smaller opshops. Some of the bigger ones are visited more frequently and I sometimes walk away with nothing (I only buy stuff that I really want. This ensures that I am not just buying stuff because the price is so soooo good).
At one stage I was also walking away from items over $3. But now I look at the item and think "What would you pay for it if it was in a retail store?" So I find that I still walk away with a unique item at a quater of the cost than what I would usually pay.

Skirt: $2.50 (opshop) Shirt: old  Glasses: .50c (old) Earrings: .50c (opshop)

Big Love,
