Restyle 2014 and The Australian Red Cross

 For Restyle 2014, each of the bloggers have been partnered with a different charity and I was lucky enough to be paired up with the Australian Red Cross. The Australian  Red Cross stores help to fund humanitarian programs  locally, Australia wide and in the  Asia Pacific region. The organisation relies heavily on volunteers and has in WA 3488 alone, 750 of who work in the fund raising retail sector!

The Australian Red Cross celebrate their Centenary this year, and they have SO MUCH to be proud of! You can also join in the festivities by signing up to host your own Big Cake Bake morning tea on August 25th. This is a fun and delicious way to raise funds and awareness for  Australian Red Cross and to celebrate their momentous 100 year anniversary. I’ll be hosting a morning tea at my office and am already planning what yummy baked goodies I’ll be making (did someone say choc caramel cupcakes?!)
 




A big part of my partnership with  Australian  Red Cross Australia is to shop exclusively in their stores for all my Restyle goodies (oh the burden!!), and boy have I been spoilt for choice! I have found so many wonderful things! The Australian Red Cross have 28 op shops in WA, ten of which are in the Perth metro area. I have now been to all of the metro stores and here are my hot tips…


Australian Red Cross Shoalwater  - check it out if you want a serious bargain! The shop is beautifully merchandised by size and colour so it’s super easy to find something that fits and suits you, plus pretty much everything in the store is $10 or less.

Australian Red Cross North Perth – this is the place to go if you want some designer labels, the North Perth store have a huge variety of designer gear and lots of recognisable brand names.

Australian Red Cross Duncraig – this store is vintage heaven! Even if you live in Freo like I do, it’s totally worth the drive to check out their amazing rack of vintage clothing and excellent costumes.

Australian Red Cross  Fremantle – this is a great place to start if you are new to op shopping, the store is more like a boutique with heaps of brand new clothing, pristine vintage, designer labels and lots of shoes and accessories.

  
Happy op shopping!
