Personal Stylist, Image Consultant, Model ♥ Melbourne Fashion Blogger ♥ Australian Fashion Blog ♥

A few weeks ago I had the privilege to do an amazing photo shoot for the Warrnambool Standard (a local newspaper) with the Lifeline Op Shop for the current Warrnambool May Racing Carnival. (LifeLine provides access to crisis support, suicide prevention and mental health support services. Find out more here). The challenge was to come up with different racing outfits using the clothes they receive in the form of donations. Together, with their inStore stylist; Chloe Mae Brian, we conjured up a few stunning looks worth under $35 (yes, head to toe).

An undeniably timeless Coco Chanel inspired look…

…for the classic beauty.

An elegant, flattering silhouette…

… for the extravagant lady on a budget ;).

This is proof that fabulous fashion doesn’t always have to break your purse ;)

    These are just perfect! I’m a massive advocate of op-shop style. More challenging to get it right. But when you do… It. Is. Awesome.
