It has been a long time since I have done any thrift shopping. Fortunately for me, whenever I do go, I am able to find great treasures hidden among the racks of clothes. I usually do not have the patience to carefully flick through every item possible. Instead, I would scan through the aisles, looking at the pattern/ material of each piece and stop at one if it appeals to my eyes. I came to realise that I always find myself looking for more blouses. It is my favourite section because I simply adore blouses with unique patterns.
On Thursday, Mikaela and I went to a large thrift store in Noarlunga. Funnily enough, the trip there was stressing because we kept driving on unfamiliar roads. However, once there, we spent over an hour browsing and was tremendously exhausted by the time we had finished. Mikaela literally bought a whole basket full of clothes whilst I made quite a few blouse purchases. Hopefully, I will be able to wear it once the weather cools down a little more. We ended the night treating ourselves to delicious pizzas at Botanic Bar and experiencing interesting situations along the way.. Nonetheless, it was definitely a fun day.

I wore this beautiful maxi dress from Sugar Lips. The rope detailing at the back as well as the pattern certainly makes the dress a whole lot more interesting and different. I wanted to style it a little differently by tying a knot at the bottom of the dress with a hairtie. This was because I wanted to display more of my edgy, new pair of boots. Well...  now that we are on the topic of the shoes, I must say that I am currently obsessed with it. I am so glad that I made this purchase as I can already see it as my new wardrobe statement for the upcoming autumn season. I love the cut-outs on the side and the fact that it isn't too chunky to wear. I added a belt on my waist as I particularly prefer that area to be a little tighter than the rest of my body. I decided that wearing my studded headband and applying vampy-looking lipstick (M.A.C.'s Diva) was necessary to complete this look. Thanks for reading!

P.s. I have finally decided to make a Facebook page for the blog. Please like if you are able to. It would mean so much to me. Also, follow me on Instagram and Twitter for other updates xx
