Current and Fave Recycled pieces

So I'm writing my latest post whilst watching Master Chef USA.
The chefs are in Puerto Rico and are making these amazing pork dishes GAH I'M SO HUNGRY WHY MUST THEY TEMPT ME SO :-(

Never mind I'm too excited to share my latest and greatest recycle finds with you all!

Today I paid a brief visit to my favourite recycled clothing store, Recycle Boutique.
For those of you who don't know, this place is my second home LOL.
They sell recycled clothing, accessory and shoe gems from designer to the unknown and I have found some pretty amazing things from this place which you can check out HERE, and HERE.

I've been wanting to brighten my wardrobe up a bit and the first thing that caught my eye in the store was this gorgeous 100% pure silk, gold sequined top by Witchery!

This top would've easily been $80+ in store but I picked it up for a reasonable price of NZD$25!!!
Aaaand pure silk how lucky could I get!

The top can be worked into a casual day look and a glam night look.
I'm wearing this with my fave Levi's jeans and my nude Christian Louboutin peep toe pumps which were also a great find from R.B :-)


My Loubi's :D
Next on my current finds is this flowy cardi/jacket from brand Jacqui E.

The photo on the left doesn't do it any justice, it is gorgeous!

It's also something I would never buy either and it looks great on :-)
Despite being 6 sizes too big for me I love the fit as it will incorporate well into summer.
I've folded the sleeves up and paired it with my new Witchery top, it's looking pretty good.

Picked that baby up for NZD$28 :D

And last, but not least, is a purchase I made at the beginning of last month is this fab Sugar Skull Scarf!

This wasn't the first time I'd seen this scarf at R.B.
I'd never brought before but I thought I'd go for it this time and I'm so glad I did, this thing is huge!

It's also very warm and I picked it up for NZD$6 which was less than I hoped; something like this scarf would easily be worth $30!
I saw Ashley Simpson wear a scarf similar to this in '04 or '05 and I loved her style back then and still do :-)

Of course in this photo of her here she's wearing an Alexander McQueen Skull Scarf, unfortuantely the brand isn't portrayed on mine but it still is gorge :-)

So gals and guys I hope you liked what I brought cause I sure do :D
So do any of you go thrift shopping? What are you're best purchases? And what is you go to fashion staple?

Cheers for reading!!!
