The first thing I do when I walk into an op shop is make a bee-line for the dresses… well that used to be my first stop but lately I’ve found myself going straight to the men's t-shirts. I love finding funny printed T’s and retro cartoon characters. On my most recent trip to Salvos I found this great Ghost Busters t-shirt. It’s XL, so it’s SUPER comfy, and if I tie it up in a knot at the back then it fit’s just right. 

I dressed this t-shirt up with a leather skirt and sky high boots to celebrate one of my good friends birthdays. She organised drinks at a cool bar in the City, and seeing as I very rarely venture into Perth I thought it was a good excuse to wear something a little edgier.

How would you dress up a men's t-shirt? I guess skinny jeans and heels is the obvious choice, but I’m not much of a jeans girl, so my super cool spotty leather skirt made a good substitute. I fell in love with this vintage beauty at first sight (obvs), it was a tiny bit too tight but I bought it anyway. I honestly would have done anything to make this skirt fit, even give up pasta, but luckily once I cut out the polyester lining (and slipped on some Spanx) it fit like a dream, pasta crisis averted!

PS Did you know today is Go Orange for PWS Day? If you have never heard of Prader Willi Syndrome (which you probably haven't because it's very rare) then I suggest you check out this link. A good friend of mine has a beautiful little daughter with PWS, so today I'll be wearing some of my favourite orange accessories for her and donating my coffee money here (no one needs a third coffee anyway right?!)


  1. So cute and I'm glad you averted the pasta crisis!

  2. I love your outfit - a nice leather skirt has been on my thrift wish list for so long! I wear printed t-shirts in mainly two ways; tucked into an enormous fluffy skirt or cut into a crop top and over a dress. I'm not keen on showing my tummy, but it's nice to feel like I can still keep up with the crop top trend (plus it's better for winter!) ~____^

    1. Oh my gosh that is such a good idea! I'd never thought to wear a crop top over a dress... what kind of dress do you wear? Like a stretchy tube dress or something?
