Secondhand Winter Style + Life Update

Secondhand Winter Style + Life Update

Did you miss me? No need to answer that!

Hope you are doing great wherever you are and enjoying anything on your plate recently.

I felt slack to blog in the past week, coz I’ve got so many things on my mind and so many things to do after we moved to our new place a few months back. Subconsciously, I reckon I am still quite stressed out during our move, and although almost everything is now back in order around the house, there’s a part of me feeling unsettled.

Don’t get me wrong. I love this new place we have now, located in a quiet semi-posh and quiet community, and a much bigger space at the back where we can all hang out with our cats. I spent the whole autumn weeding and gardening since the place had not been tendered by the previous renters.

Slowly, getting there as I often say.

We’ve been to New Zealand, twice this year! And I am thinking of going back this coming school holiday. Time flies so fast, indeed.

I’ve shared visiting to Bluff, New Zealand in my previous post and that’s only a small fraction of the NZ travel blog I have. I promise I’ll share more NZ travel stories before our 3rd NZ trip!

Winter is finally here, and I learned to love it! That means more crafting and upcycling ideas on hand, and it will be fun. For sure!

Outfit story – well would you believe that most of these are secondhand?

Here’s the lowdown – my beige knitted top is made by a local Australian brand which I bought for $5.00 from one of my op shop trips 2 years ago; I paired it with this brown dress (now looks like a maxi skirt!) an item that I bought in a small shop in Harajuku, Japan back in 2019. 

My oversized sunnies ($2.00), leather boots ($5.00) and handbag ($4.00) are also bought from the local op shop. I was more excited about this handbag because it is a replica of the early 2000 Fendi patent leather handbag which I don’t mind getting because it is still such a good bag. I don’t mind having replicas, occasionally that is if I am lucky enough to meet a good one.

My paintings and prints including my plants are now in order and I enjoyed the whole process of redecorating, although I admit it was also a stressful part. 

Since we are renting (for now), I decided to place my huge frames sits on the floor and use lots of 3M sticky hooks for support. My plants are loving our new place too, with wider glass windows that welcome more natural lights. 

Of course, my furry babies love it too.
