Close up of accessories and bag:

My friend and I want to do the Brisbane Zombie Walk next weekend, so we spent some time today shopping in the Paddington op shops (thrifit/second hand stores) to find something suitable to wear. Best place in Brisbane to thrift!
I bought a few things: a blazer, a beautiful maxi skirt, an orange belt, an amazingly bright orange top, this cute belted bracelet and some options for next weekend. Everything was pre-owned so it doesn't break my October "buy nothing new month" challenge, thankfully as I've been so bad at sticking to it! Was really good to spend the day together browsing the different stores and trying various costume ideas.

It was cool in the morning but warm during the day so I tied my scarf to my bag for the majority of the day. Wanted to wear comfortable shoes for all the walking we would be doing, and minimal accessories so I could try things on easily. It's best to ignore sizes when thrifting and just try things on anyway, you never know! I'm wearing a singlet under my tee too so I could try things on outside the change rooms if needed. I've worn lots of these things together before so I knew I'd be comfortable, and I was able to spend more time browsing and less in change rooms :)

The scarf was last worn here, tee here, jeans here, shoes here and bag here.
