|It's amazing how many memorable outfits this $4 vintage skirt I purchased from Opshoppers has given me. I guess it just goes to show that it always pays to pick up vintage pieces in timeless cuts and modern prints. You can't wrong with midi skirts and stripes, especially when it's under $5. |
It's no accident of course, that I happened to pick out the one black and white piece out of a pile of miscellaneous apparel on Opshopper owner Fiona's living room floor. I have what might now be considered to be an unhealthy obsession with monochrome. I feel like I need to go to some Monochrome Wearers Anonymous meetings, where you are encouraged to introduce yourself by saying 'Hi, I'm a fashion blogger and I can't stop wearing black and white.'
At last week's Westfield Flat Lay the Nation Bloggers Challenge event at Westfield Belconnen, my fellow Canberra fashion bloggers dared me to style a flatlay that isn't black and white. After faffing about with this colour and that colour, I ended up putting together an all black outfit. Somehow I don't think that's what they meant.
Which ultimately leads me again to this nifty Ziggy Nicole Crop Top from Pemba Boutique. Black and white, cropped, halter neck, the roll-call of awesome goes on. It's such a versatile piece that I've been able to style it in so many different ways - with boyfriend jeans for something a little grunge and then with denim cutoffs and a big green bush (that grows in your yard!) for a disheveled pool party look.
