little ray of sunshine.

Something Else knit tank | sass and bide jeans | Zara denim jacket | Dallas and Carlos necklace | Sunday Somewhere sunglasses |  American Apparel carry-all | Converse all stars | 

These were taken Saturday afternoon - savouring what was left of our little sunshine before the winter weather and rain clouds came back and took our summer away. Which annoys me because I spent a lot of time thinking up my summer wardrobe and here I am in summer wearing jeans everyday. Not ideal. Oh well, at least I can get some early wear out of my Acne knit!

Just as you thought my knit obsession couldn't get any worse, I found a way to incorporate knits into my summer attire. After searching high and low, I stumbled upon this Something Else knit tank which i've been wearing for the last few days with every bottom I own. My mustard sass and bide jeans finally make their first appearance here. I quite like the mustard beige combo although their both kinda variations of yellow? Finally bought white Cons, which just happen to be kid sized (anything to save $30). 

I wore this to Surry Hills markets on the weekend - trying my hand at selling my unwanted clothes with fellow bloggers Laura and Lisa. I've always wanted to set up a little market stall and while I've heard mainly positive things, it didn't go quite the way we'd planned. I had quite a few pieces which I'd only worn once and was forced to lower the price in order for it to find a new home (ie. Piper Lane dress I bought for $150, wore once and ended up selling it for $30). By about midday we had decided to cut everything to below $20 or risk going home with a basketful of clothes - you could say we were getting a little desperate! There were some lovely vintage pieces I bought during my vintage phase and I was surprised no one wanted to grab a bargain. Then there were some pieces I thought I'd have no chance of selling and they all went for $5! Strange. The three of us had a lot of fun (and got sunburnt in the process), although we all agreed it wouldn't be something we would do again. I made a little less than I would on a full day at work. Oh well. Something to tick off the bucket list!

  8. omgosh. i had the exact same problem when I had a stall for a day at Glebe markets, i was so disappointed when people haggled with me for items that were brand new with tags and I'd already reduced the price by almost 75%.

    so disappointing, except now I don't know what to do with my old clothes :(
