No Heroes


Today I scored these 90's Windsor Smith shoes ahhh! I know they are totally ugly, but in the best way possible - right? They are very similar to another pair of Windsor Smiths I thrifted a while ago and sadly have almost worn out. They are in one of my earlier outfit posts and are cherry red lace-ups. They are kinda like docs but with a chunkier sole which I love. My hot tip is that if your feet are a UK7 or bigger always check the men's shoes when you're thrifting - most if not all of the shoes will be gross but you will get lucky one day, I promise! I also found an ASOS Curve peplum top which is real cute but the smallest size 26 I've ever seen, no wonder it was in the thrift store!

Plaid and Stripes




I scored this skirt thrifting today and couldn't wait to make an outfit with it. This outfit is almost entirely thrifted and cost less than $25 - not including the shoes but they were $30 on sale!

New Boots


I've been after the pair of black ankle boots for some time now and today I spotted "ASOS ARCHER Leather Ankle Boots" for $22 down from $108... Now I'm not 100% sure that these are the perfect pair of my dreams - actually they definitely aren't - "Dr. Martens Women's Kensington Flora Leather Chelsea Boots" are the dream but they are waaay out of my price range right now.
 Here's hoping the ASOS boots fit because they're on the way to me and I already have a few outfits in mind! Another piece I've been after is a black vest and Dream Diva have one that I just can't get outta my head...
I think it would work well with a dark tee and some dark jeans like these ones from ASOS:

Ok so today I went to the thrift store or op shop and scored this City Chic "URBAN SAFARI HI LO DRESS" in dark green for $20 - a bit pricey but I couldn't resist. I'm a bit over fishtail hemlines, it seems like they are out of straight sizes but are still everywhere in the plus sizes! The mesh panels and button front are totally cute. The pockets have grown on me - the velcro closures give me late 90's - early 00s vibes which helps. Maybe I'm totally crazy for thinking that? Anyway, in summer I'm going to pair it with my Lipstik slides which I got from Trade Secret for $30 instead of $40. I'm thinking I need a black kimono or longline cardigan and a skinny black belt to top this outfit off.

Vintage picks from The Curvy Elle

I'm a huge fan of the Curvy Elle though I have only purchased from her store once before. I managed to snap up the best skirt EVER which I will have to include in an outfit post soon. Anyway here are a few of my favourites from the store right now:

COLORBLOCK TEE / GEOMETRIC TEE These tees are totally on trend - I'm picturing them with jogger pants and strappy sandals or trainers - sports luxe style!

 DENIM PINAFORE / FLORAL EMBROIDERED DENIM MAXI I really need a denim pinafore in my life - they are totally trans-seasonal by wearing a tee or a skivvy under. Paired with a choker, chunky sandals or docs for a cute 90's inspired look.
