The Restyle Photo-A-Day Opshop Challenge took to the runway (twice!) over the weekend, as part of this year's Telstra Perth Fashion Festival. The seven Restyle bloggers, along with volunteers from local stores and fellow op shop lovers, showcased their op-shopped looks at Fashion Central.

I went along to the show on Friday morning and annoyingly left my camera battery at home (arghh!) luckily the ever helpful Mystery Case was there and kindly lent me her camera. (Thank you!) Being at the show definitely brought back memories of last year's strut, and it was so great to see a fresh batch of creative looks take to the runway.

Shopping at op shops and donating your unwanted goods is so important and the Restyle initiative certainly succeeds in raising awareness and promoting the need for op shopping, in the community.
The bloggers did a phenomenal job through-out August and on the runway bringing us thirty one looks using opshopped pieces, proving you don't need to spend a fortune to look fabulous!!

10 Black Bags Under $100

 Just because it is a wardrobe necessity, the basic black bag doesn't need to be boring right? It's all in the details. Gold hardware, embossed detail and a variety of different straps all add an interesting element to an everyday staple. Personally, I love a padlock detail and in terms of size, the bigger the better. (I just have so much 'stuff'!!)

I have put together my ten favourite black bags under $100 for your shopping pleasure. My little Friday treat for you!

If you haven't heard of online fashion store Hello Parry yet, then where have you been?! The Perth based store stocks the coolest range of fashion forward, street style inspired, on trend pieces and is loved by fashionistas everywhere! 
I recently picked up a few items from their new Spring range and loved them both so much I wore them together. I love the colour combination of nude and white for Spring. It looks so fresh and stylish and is a great way to test the waters of the current white-on-white trend if you are too scared to wear an all white outfit. (Yep, my hand is up!)

As part of this year's Telstra Perth Fashion Festival Hello Parry will be showcasing the latest Spring collection in their first ever runway show. Is it wrong that this is the show I am most excited about?! 
If you are in Perth then head down to Fashion Central at 2:30pm for the show. Did I mention it was FREE!

For all the details head here. Hope to see you there!
