My favourite thrifted find in Australia

I am a thrift shop lover and a high street fan - I love a bargain but I also love tapping into new trends with every now and then saving up for a bigger (more special) purchase. That's kinda how my wardrobe rolls and has done for years. My move to Oz saw me continue my passion for vintage and also mix in some new brands as well as one-off bits I found in boutiques - they don't have a booming high street as such, just a lot more online retailers and small independents. 

My current wardrobe situation is minimal due to travelling and although I have suprised myself imensly by living with less, I am looking forward to being reunited with the wonderful British high street yet again. My attitude to style and fashion looks like this: it's about buying what you really love, investing in staples, always go vintage and don't forget to have fun with what you already have. For example, I have been re-working some of my dresses with IMO, successful results.

In today's post I wanted to share with you guys my favourite ever thrifted piece from Australia, it was a mere $5 and was found lurking in a charity shop in the Hunter Valley (a famous wine region near Sydney). The delicate lace pattern and cool muted colours of this dress just oozes beachy vibes and I love the loose fit. I am not a huge fan of a super high neck-line so this relaxed round neck is perfect for my shape - I can still show off my favourite necklaces too! It works thrown over a bikini for sundown sessions or worn casj with slim-fit jeans and a biker jacket. Personally, barefoot and over a bikini is my current jam.

What's your favourite ever thrifted find and where in the world did you stumble across it?
