Friday Fashion Fix: Recycle Boutique!

Hello all! How has your week been? It's Friday afternoon here, woohoo!! I can't believe how quick another week has flown by!

I have had a good week and am going away for the weekend with my boyfriend so I am looking forward to that! I've caught a bit of the dreaded 'lurgy' that's been going around work (darned winter!) so am taking it easy tonight in hope that I will be a bit better tomorrow.

I also sold FOUR things in my Etsy Shop this week!! AMAZING!!

So last Friday I shared my previous Friday shopping excursion, THE Trelise Cooper dress. Well that same Friday, I spent my lunch hour rummaging around in Recycle Boutique. I wanted a new jacket / dress / ANYTHING but came away with a fabulous bag and pair of shoes instead!

They were in SUCH awesome condition that I couldn't leave them there! (Does this happen to you?!)

Whad'ya think??
I LOVE white bags and this one is HUGE! It was $38 and was originally from Country Road :)

These shoes had been worn barely once...the soles and heels were immaculate. I have since worn them to the orchestra last Saturday :)
Shoes, leather, by Siren, and were $25!!!!!!

This is AFTER I wore them last weekend!

Awesome deals!

And one other thing for your viewing pleasure - my nails!

As you can see if you look closely, some of them are peeling as I think I need a bit more practice applying them!

I bought these ages ago and have only gotten around to trying them this week as they seemed a bit fiddly.
They weren't TOO bad but I did have the bf holding the hairdryer for me as I applied them! At first I wasn't sure about them but now I quite love them!!! 
What do you think?
As you will see from this:
I have even coordinated my jewellery and clothes with them!!! hahaha

What are your weekend plans? :)

  21. Oh I've tried that manicure before!! It was soo cool- but same happened to me, it began to peel right away on some nails. It's difficult to get used to applying them. Actually, I've seen Sally Hansen ones that are a gummy nail polish material rather than paper. I haven't tried them yet, but I wonder if they are easier to use...? Those thrift finds are something else- especially the shoes! They are in perfect condition- I don't blame you for adopting them!


  22. Congrats on your sales!
    I love your picks especially the bag! And your nails.....fabulous!!!

  23. Wow!! You did so well!! That's fantastic!! I love that purse...white patent?! You cannot get more fabulous than that! And the shoes are an amazing find. I'm loving the nails too but most of all CONGRATULATIONS on the Etsy sales!! How exciting is that???!!!!

  24. love the bag so cute and the shoes are great! your nails look amazing!!
