Day 6- Joseph’s amazing techni-coloured dream coat

Okay maybe I am cheating a little, because this coat does not come from an op-shop. I picked it up from an e-bay seller. But it is retro and second hand and buying second hand clothing from an e-bay seller or op-shop still helps to cut down our carbon footprint.. Plus it is warm and snuggly and has a massive hood that you can hide under if you have a bad hair day!

I heart big pockets! Never understood why so much clothes have ‘fake’ pockets to give the illusion of a pocket without all the snuggly warmth. I also love that socks with sandals are (kindof) in fashion to keep my toes worn!

    Rest assured, as long as the Pacific Northwest keeps raining, socks and sandals will always be in style… much to my dismay as we’ve ruined the look for everyone.

    Curious: what is an op-shop? I’m starting to think you’re talking about secondhand, thrift stores, but I’m curious what the “op” is short for.

      Hi.. good question
      Op-shop is a short hand way of saying opportunity shop in Australia- it basically is a shop that sells second hand clothes usually for the purpose of fundraising for a charity
