Alvina's purchases #13-19

The end of the year is here and i have ONLY made 19 purchases this year (excluding accessories). This challenge of only 25 purchases a year has transformed me from an obsessive compulsive shopper to someone with an increased appreciation for garments and style.

Vintage green suede skirt
 I love this skirt because it’s so versatile, I’m looking forward to wearing it as a cape, skirt and a corset like top.

Vintage suede tan vest

The vest has a bit of a hippy feel, can’t wait to rock it with some trippy funky styles.  

Vintage

Yes i am on a vintage roll, this is a vintage dress which i will wear as a kimono, unbuttoned. I am on the search for a nice kimono for an exotic look but this will do in the mean time =). The long pleats flow in the wind like a cape making the wearer look mysterious ;p.

Pinkii mint maxi dress

I needed a change of clothing so i bought this one on a spur, but i loved the soothing mint pastel colour. I forgot the name of the brand because the tag was taken off but i think it’s Pinkii. 

Something else - Fishy Ken Done kaftan

This is a collaboration with an iconic australian artist named Ken Done, i love the cutouts on the arms  and the cuts on the back. Love the distinctly australian fish print and its vibrance. Definitely going to pair it with bright frosted sunnies and chunky boots or heels.

Jolie & Deen long sleeve dress

It can be casual or sassy with addition of a fur vest or excessive jewellery.

Bally rucksack

A quilted rucksack yay! It fits my macbook air so that’s all that matters =)

Only 25 garments to shop in a year? Wow, that indeed takes a lot of patient and a clear mind... I am smitten by the mint maxi dress. All of your finds are pretty gorgeous as I love vintage shopping as well, I love to see what others get :)
Good luck, and have a very Happy New Year!!!

I love the vest and skirt!! I go more by budget and how much I need to set aside to spend every quarter on clothes. Counting purchases seems like a good idea. :)
