Thrifty Style Staple

In the last month or so I have realised how my capsule travel wardrobe was not at all prepared for the winter. Armed with complete determination to avoid fast fashion retailers at all costs, I headed to the thrift store or 'op shop' as they are called in New Zealand. 
 I found this Zara cropped knit hidden away and bagged for $3.00/£1.50. It is a bit bobbly in places which just goes to show that fast fashion items aren't always the best quality. I've always had a bit of thing for brown, oatmeal coloured jumpers so it's the perfect addition to my winter wardrobe. 
 I was also desperately on the lookout for some secondhand thermals as I am going to working a ski season. Luckily, I found one pair in SaveMart, which is a second hand DREAM. However, I did also break my 'no fast fashion' rule and bought an additional pair from the Warehouse and in true karma, I found another SaveMart which was absolutely jam packed with thermals. My lesson from this is to wait and not to panic buy. We're all still learning.
