New little Treasure



“Fashion is not necessarily about labels. It’s not about brands. It’s about something else that comes from within you.”

- Ralph Lauren

I found this little treasure hidden away in a second hand store in the small town of Raetihi.
I instantly fell in love with the little suits pastel colour and floral pattern, which was, surprisingly, perfectly on trend. The lady at the store was so sweet and gave it to me for only $5!
When looking at the label I found out the suit was from Oxford Street in England. That's what I love about second hand clothing, is that they come with such history. I wonder, how did this little thing make its way all the way to a small town in New Zealand?

I am yet to be brave enough to wear the 2 piece, so instead I just did a little trial run with the skirt by itself yesterday afternoon when I went to the pools (yes I hope the explains the jandals haha)
