Aussie Curves: Knits, slice & everything nice...

This week's challenge calls for garments of the knitted kind. I love knit wear, for me it always adds a feminine touch which is exactly what I was looking for in this case and outfit choice. These photo's were taken a month or two back. My Wade Ave ladies & I had come from church and headed to the "Search for the best Vanilla slice" market day in Merbien, a small town about 15 minutes from where we live. I love small town happenings they're so "Glimore Girls" which I also love (oh and I won't forget my love for vanilla slice), haha. So of course we had to go check it out! :) I wore wedges with this outfit to church but slipped into my canvas shoes before heading out because we were going to be walking around a lot! It was a good day despite the sadness to our lives when we got there at 1pm and were told all the vanilla slice sold out by 10am!! lol.

I totally just realised once again that this whole outfit besides my bag is thrifted :) This is becoming more and more common because my sister & I just love finding individual pieces at a fraction of the price and we share everrrrrything! It's a good time! Op-shop people...its the way to go!

ANYWAY, here was my OOTD:


Creme knitted cardigan $2 Vinnies/Flroal wrap dress, sisters wardrobe/Beach comber canvas shoes, $3 Salvos/Tan plaited handbag, $10 Equip 3 seasons back/ Glasses, sister's wardrobe :)


and then the wind blew...


Beautiful vintage cars were EVERYWHERE! It is my dream to one day own one of these babies!





 Enough of me...how do you do knits?! :)

Love x
