Shopping for that Special occaision

 Last month we had a wedding to attend in Sydney, I had my dress and shoes all sorted and was checking out my handbags to see which I would take and the found the one I had that was suitable was way too small.
So like a woman on a mission I went of to all my local stores searching for something that would work.

Yes I could of gone of to the retail stores and found something perfect, but I love my thrift stores and after finding the bag pictured above I knew I had made the right decision. The photo doesn't really show it all that well but it as such pretty pleating all the way down the front flap.

My next dilemma (the week before we flew down) was that the coat I pulled out of the spare wardrobe didn't fit 'insert sad face here'
There was no way I could do a wedding in Sydney in July without a coat, finances certainly didn't fit with going retail either, so back to the thrift stores I went desperately this time praying I would find something not only warm but dressy enough for a wedding.
You guessed it! I did! This one was super warm and looked great with my dress and the bonus (and why I love thrift stores) was only $10!

Thanks for stopping by
Lis :)
