Gown or tomboy? I absolutely adore getting dolled up and donning a gown but I rarely get the opportunity, so I was excited to see the Gown style prompt!
Your top tip for someone who has not opshopped before: Have an open mind! You need to you take your time, sort through the racks thoroughly (try not to get overwhelmed!), imagine how the clothes will look and work with your own style. Remember that funny smells and small marks can usually be fixed with a good wash!

Animal Print or Pastel? Pastels make me think of bridesmaid dresses but I also love animal print! Definitely my favourite two prompts!
What is your favourite opshop find? A few months ago I found a Rebecca Thompson silk skirt for $7 - it still had the $299 price tag on!

Describe your style in 5 words: Pretty, Feminine, Romantic, Nostalgic, Girlie
Floral or Double Denim? Florals are a timeless classic. I have always loved floral fabrics, prints, pretty floral tea dresses and midi skirts. Florals compliment my personality and sense of style and I always feel fantastic wearing a LFD (Little Floral Dress)
Your top tip for someone who has not opshopped before? Opshops are filled to the brim with all sorts of hidden treasures so I recommend persistence and patience. Look for things which have interesting prints, quality fabrics and classic silhouettes.

Describe your style in 5 words: Chic, Classic, Undone, Edgy and Comfortable
Glitter or neutrals? Neutrals are a clean slate especially with less-is-more feminine tailoring, textures and soft elegance. I love the flexibility, youthfulness and audacity of neutrals for any season.
Top tip for someone who hasn’t opshopped before: Look for quality fabrics and know what colours suit you; this will help avoid buying things you would likely never wear. Lots of opshops arrange garments by colour which is super helpful!

Animal Print or Pastel? If you ask me the same question tomorrow my answer would probably different! Today it’s Pastel- I’m feeling very romantic, spending all day dreaming about dancing around in a secret garden full of flowers in a gorgeous pastel dress, enjoying every ray of sunshine.
Top tip for someone who has never opshopped before: Take your time, open your mind, let your imagination work and don't worry about the sizes. If you’re not sure about an item just GET IT! They are all crazy amazing bargains and the next day when you come back it's not going to be there :)
