Hi, My Name Is Sunshine and I Am A Shopaholic!
I have a confession to make. I am a serial Op Shopper! This is Ro-Ro in the $1 pet bed I bought for him & Bella (they have to share it & it is on a first in first served basis as to who gets the bed for the night! The loser comes & sleeps on my bed!) I bought the bed home & threw it in the washing machine as it is soft & padded. Once it dried I put an old towel in it & hey presto they both loved it!
This full length blue/purple coat is pure wool and looks brand new. It cost me $1 at the local Op Shop. It is a funny colour, neither blue nor purple, kind of in between. Very soft & warm for winter.
This gorgeous red & gold skirt was also $1 from the same Op Shop. It is too long on me & I am hoping I can take it up so I can wear it. Kind of looks Egyptian/Indian to me. It too seems to be brand new. It is much prettier IRL! Made from a sort of satin material & is very soft & flowing.
My Indian Sari was $6, my most expensive Op Shop buy so far, but worth it as it fits like a glove & looks gorgeous on me! I wear it with blue leggings which are the same blue as in the Sari. Coincidence as I had bought the leggings some time before the Sari.
This is a close up of the beading on the denim jacket in the last photo. For some reason they uploaded in the WRONG order:-( The beading is quite ornate & runs down the front of the jacket. The jacket was $3.
This full length pure wool coat is really soft & will be so warm for winter! I am ALMOST looking forward to winter now as I will be WARM when I go out! This cost me $5. I am sure it was brand new.
This is a denim jacket I bought for $1 last winter. It has Winnie-the-Pooh motifs on it and I love it! This also seemed to be brand new.
Here's the back of the above jacket. My hair is long and partially covers up the motif so I pin my hair up when I wear it. Gotta show of Winnie-the-Pooh!
Here is WTP on the front pocket of the jacket. I wear this a lot on winter!
Here is a close-up of the motif on the back of the jacket. Just love him! The photo below is of a huge pile (over 200!) of bracelets I bought for $2 from another Op Shop. Some are smaller/bigger than others but they all fit my wrist. Just love all the colours!
Oops, I just "lost" the last photo of the beaded denim jacket! I'' re- post it.
