Chirp!:

    Opportunity.Shop

    Thanks to Lazy Cow for telling me to get off my post-baby butt and to simply go out and buy some new clothes that fit me and I will feel a whole lot better.





    I do. I feel trim. I feel renewed.
    I'm about 2 sizes bigger than normal, but feel thinner as i'm not squeezing into that size and hanging the flab for all to see and be repelled by..

    And it only cost me $20.00 !!
    For 2 pairs of jeans, a denim skirt, a cotton skirt, and a brown cord skirt !!

    The real coup however was a new pair of winter boots for $10 !!! Yay ! - my old ones don't fit me as my calves have obviously expanded, and I *live* in my boots in winter !!


    Boots.

    Skirts ( preferably box-pleat - no idea why and it makes ironing and spray-starch a must ), and Crisp White Shirts/tops and Jackets.

    I'm anything if not predictable.



    Now i'm off to do a little happy dance ...

    Great finds! Must get me to an op shop pronto. And, my, you do look trim. I'm still trying to lose the last 5 kilos, 8 years later. Given up methinks.

    Good shopping!

    I really need some new boots for Winter. My winter uniform is jeans, boots & cardigans, what a fashion plate I am!

    Excellent bargain-hunting from you! That post-partum jelly belly can really get you down. But actually you're looking really good!

    Very impressed with your haul and it looks goooood!

    Looking good! ANd I *so* want some trendy black no-heel boots, but I can't justify living in the tropics. But I am going to Europe. Great excuse me thinks.

    Wow. Great work. I never have the patience to go through racks and racks of op shop clothes. Lesson learnt!

    Fairlie said...

    Wow, you did well.

    And looking very svelte too!

    Stacey said...

    Looking good!
    I think I need some shirt wearing advice from you.
    The husband likes a woman in a shirt and often brings them back for me from his travels. I just never know how to wear them.
    Can you give me a tute at some point??
    The cleavage is still looking good!!

    Far out!!! That is bloody fantastic, I am so jealous. The items in the photos look fabulous on you - you're right, you do look great.

    Cathy said...

    you look fantastic. Great finds from the op shop. Glad you are feeling better about your post baby figure.

    Louise said...

    WOW!! Aren't you a hottie!!! Good bargain hunting girl - you will of course have to tell me where you went. I can't believe you got boots too! I had the 'box pleat' skirt in the car today and ran out of time as I didn't leave work until nearly 5.30. I will drop it in your letterbox tomorrow as Daphne left her dolly at creche and life will not be the same without her! And please, you don't have to pay for it - I will be happy that it has a good home to go to!

    Kim said...

    now that is my kind of shopping.

    Kirsty said...

    Op Shopped gear is the very best kind. So satisfying! Well done.
