Perth Fashion Festival Gets Restyled
Op shopping is not my thing… As in… At All.
I do not possess the skill it takes to trawl through mountains of mediocre to find that hidden gem; but all is about to change as I have found new hope and inspiration from our local lasses.
August 1st saw the launch of the Perth Fashion Festivals latest initiative titled “30 Days of Restyle” with the aim to prove that fashion can be fabulous at any price. The PFF team has hooked up with 10 of Perth's most influential fashion bloggers along with seven different charities to show you how to restyle your wardrobe for less, not to mention supporting your community at the same time.
During the month of August, bloggers have agreed to purchase only recycled clothing and accessories from the charities involved, they will then post their daily ‘restyled’ look on their blogs showing fellow fashionistas of Perth where they can go to find their own vintage look.
During Perth Fashion Festival, STM Fashion Central will play host to the Restyle on the Runway event showcasing the most stylish and innovative looks from the 30 Days of Restyle project.

Needless to say I have been avidly following the everyday op shop adventures of my favourite local bloggers (it gets a bit addictive) and I`m actually shocked at some of the pieces and bargains that these girls find. I think that Bonnie Duran (Bonnie Friday) sums it up best “… style is first and foremost about individuality and confidence.” Proving that all you need is a keen eye, add in your own personality, spunk and style and you too can put together your ultimate wardrobe.
So be inspired and (if you’re like me) venture where you have never dared to before. As these bloggers have already proven, second hand doesn't always mean second best. I encourage you to follow the journey of your favourite blogger/s, go forth and explore an op shop or two; you might be pleasantly surprised.
