For those of you who haven't worked it out...
Most of my clothing is from op shops, and that of my kids!
This has been the case since I was about 15, when I caught the op-shopping/garage sale-ing bug!
Clothing kids DOES NOT have to be expensive.
(I also inherit a lot of stuff for the kids from wonderful sisters, sisters-in-law and friends, which is SO cool and lucky..)
I don't claim to be a style guru by ANY stretch, but I would like to say (in case you didn't already know!) that cool things can be found...
Lots of my blogging buddies are op/chaz/thrift shoppers, but this is for those who aren't!
And we can help charities and save the planet, one garment at a time!
I have been asked a few times for my top op-shopping tips .. I will put a post together about this asap!
