A Meshy Thrift Style Thursday

*Even though I’m currently frolicking with the munchkin on a beautiful Egyptian beach or bouncing through the desert on the back of a camel or perhaps haggling over fabric in a bedouin bazaar…thanks to a bit of forethought & the miracle of scheduled blog posts I’m still able to partake in the eco-fashion fun of this week’s thrift style thursday, hooray!

Featuring yet another trend from my fashion past…

Mesh was absolutely HUGE in the 90’s!

*as was wild & wonderful hair colour – I recommend everyone have pink hair at least once in their lifetime

15(-ish) years later & mesh has reappeared even funkier than before! As I have a fondness for the softness of knitted mesh (& the colour orange) I was over the moon to discover these beauties at my local charity shop on €1 day!

Destroyed Sweater (thrifted) €1 – Jumpsuit (thrifted) €5 – Clutch (gift) €0 – Vintage Sandals (ebay) €8 – Knit Mesh Tunic (thrifted) €1 – Tank dress (thrifted) €0.50 – Crocheted Handbag (had for years) €0 – Vintage Sandals (ebay) €6

Total cost for both outfits: €21.50

Twinsies? Perhaps in another life…or perhaps I’m just nuts…

"There’s just something so fun and girly about a floral print, especially when it’s on a twirly dress!"
