Shopping With Gumtree

Hello gorgeous ones,

Hope you’re enjoying this silly season and all that comes with it! For me it’s really just another reason to shop hahaha.

And shopping up a storm is exactly what I’ve been doing thanks to *Gumtree Australia!

By now many of you know how much I love to hunt down a bargain. I don’t mind where I shop and more often than not I tend to look over my local op shops before heading to the big centres, I can almost guarantee I will find what I’m after by checking the preloved goodies first!

Which brings me to todays post and the fun I had with Gumtree and their #OOTD Challenge…. find an outfit on Gumtree, ummm ok that’s too easy!

After spending a few evenings scouring the Gumtree app and website I had found a complete outfit and better yet it was all from one lady  in Melbourne which meant only one postage fee!

Take a look….

Witchery Fashion Shirt Dress originally $140, I paid $70 – Prada Evening Bag $50 and Belt $10

I love this shirt dress, very versatile! Long sleeves for winter and because it buttons all the way down the front, there’s the option to wear it open over something else.

I also purchased the most divine pair of brand new Nine West heels, I didn’t wear them with this outfit as I felt they were a bit heavy  for this look but of course I photographed them!

$50 was all they set me back and you can see by looking at the sole they had never been worn! Amazing

My second outfit consists of a super duper fabulous sparkly sequinned skirt. Now I love anything shiny, its the magpie in me! This stunning Alannah Hill skirt I found here in Perth and you know what was even better than the skirt?

The lovely lady I bought it from! We met at Garden City Shopping Centre and she was so warm and friendly plus she has a ton of stuff that is looking for a new home! After a quick try of the skirt I decided it simply HAD to be mine!

And here it is…

I’ve paired the skirt with a $10 Calvin Klein singlet I found at my local op shop, it’s a bit shimmery and fun.

I’m still deciding when the shoes will make their first appearance, I actually don’t want to ruin them!

I will admit, much like shopping on eBay I thought Gumtree was predominately for buying cars and furniture but there really are some amazing bargains if your keen to try it out. The Gumtree #OOTD Challenge was to get peeps like you and me approaching shopping on a whole new level as well as keeping the wheels of sustainable fashion turing over!

Until next time,
