Last weekend, I went to the Thrift Shop Party organised by the beautiful Angeline of Love Thread supported by Anglicare WA.
I had been waiting for this party for 2 weeks! I know it doesn’t seem like a long time, but for someone who never goes to parties, 2 weeks seemed like forever. I visited the op shops on almost every single of my free days to source for my brother’s attire. And along the way, of course I picked up things for myself too. I would be dumb not to!
There was an Anglicare pop up op shop (where I bought Iylia a pair of Bally oxfords for FIFTEEN-FREAKIN-AMAZIN-DOLLARS), free drinks, pizza and sushi, clothes worn by Angeline for #restyle2013 up for auction (I won a red cocktail dress for $10, yay!) and … PHOTOBOOTH!
How cute is that pink picnic basket? I didn’t buy it, but it would’ve been such a great piece for decor! Plus, it came with polka dotted ceramics!!
Hafiz is wearing a blazer ($6) from Good Sammy and shirt ($5) from Anglicare, and I’m wearing a dress ($6) and clutch ($10) from Good Sammy with thrifted belt and brooch from a while back.
It was also such a pleasure to meet Angeline – she is a really inspiring young lady. Full of ambitions, talent, hardwork and warmth! I know, I sound like I’m gushing – but really, I’m a fan. Check out her blog, Love Thread, to know why.
Check out that piece of poop, I mean moustache, on my upper lip! Even waxing won’t get rid of that!
I had a really great time that night! Bargains, a free glass of lemon juice, free sushi, meeting new creatives is always nice too!
A big thanks to Angeline for making this happen! YOU GO GIRL! x
