No matter how hard I try, I suck at op-shopping. It kills me too, because I could be saving myself a lot of sweet arse monies. I don't have that clever eye that can spot stellar Vinnie's treasures. It's all too hard fossicking through to find outfits. Shopping's tricky enough, I'd rather walk into a department store and not have to worry.
My friends, Inga and Ali, are the Queens of Op-Shopping. They can make a potato sack look hot, because they posses the Op-Shop Gene (a skill you are born with). Both girls have handy little sewing machines to tweak and transform their frocks. Time after time I am blown away by what they whip up and am always left shocked when the price is under $20! Inga and I have very similar denim jackets by default. Inga's cost $6 from Vinnies and mine cost $140. Ouch!
I wish I had the Fashiony Gene too (the ability to make anything look good / fashion and style is in your blood). The editorial fashion girls at work always look so effortlessly chic. Well, a lot of people at work do actually. But the fashion department in particular are pros! Even when they are just wearing jeans and a tee, they make it look amazing and give me severe outfit envy.
Do you have the Op-Shop / Fashiony Gene? Or are you a lazy sell out like me?
