Perth Fashion Festival Restyle 2014

This time last weekend I had walked my first fashion catwalk!! As part of the Perth Fashion Festival, a Restyle challenge was held in August. Everyday there was a prompt for a different theme, a photo of an op shop or secondhand outfit had to be taken and posted onto social media. These are the daily prompts.

It was so much fun! I’ve been nuts about op shopping for the last ten years! I had most of the clothes in my own wardrobe, I only had to buy a few new pieces for the challenge! Here are a few of my favourite outfits from the challenge πŸ™‚

DIY: I bought this as a ripped dress, so I cut off the bottom and use it as a top. I can’t remember where this gem is from!

Double denim: This was my scary outfit, I could never imagine wearing double denim. I ended up snagging this cool Simpsons kids dress and kids black jacket from Good Sammy’s in Willetton.

The rest of my outfits for the month can be seen on my Instagram account:

I was then picked to participate in the #restylecatwalk where the official bloggers and ten winners walked the catwalk at fashion central in the city. It was such a fun and amazing experience. I met some lovely people and got to strut my stuff!!
