The wonder of op shops in Oz

i am now 4 and a half months into my trip and my wardrobe is well on its way to going through a complete turnover…I ditched my boots in France, lost several pieces of clothing throughout Europe, and lost enough weight that at least two pair of my bottoms are virtually unwearable. Add to this the fact that I have literally worn through a few tops, and you get a wardrobe that is in serious need of an overhaul. Fortunately for me, Australia has some amazing second hand clothing shops. It also helps that my friend Mel, whom I stayed with for my first two weeks in Melbourne, had a clothing swap party a few days after I got there.

It’s a good thing I’m not planning on leaving Melbourne for another few months because I have probably twice as much stuff than will actually fit in my backpacks. One of the dangers of staying in place for too long, you tend to accumulate more stuff. Haha that’s ok for now though as I’m having a blast exploring Melbourne’s many and varied suburbs.
