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.


There, I also met with some amazing ladies too, like Sandy of Hello Parry, Melissa of Sparkles and Fox and Rosy who photographed some of Angie’s restyle looks!


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

    Hiya Hannah! It was definitely a pleasure being able to meet you and the other girls! I had to say that before we were being introduced, your dress got my attention and I loved it!

      Hi Melissa!! I thought it was really awesome that we got to meet as well! Especially since we are both love fashion and we are Asians haha. We are the FAsianistas (I’m really bad with puns). We have Angeline to thank for that, hehe. And thank you so much for your kind words! I never thought I would love it as much as I do! (:
