trademe_logoTrademe is also another great place to shop.  This online store is equivalent to Ebay for America or Australia and sells new or second-hand items from socks to sandwiches!  I have bought a couple of neat pieces of clothes from there, as has my sister.  Over the years, a good family friend has bought some lovely branded clothes for me off Trademe, including skirts, blazers, coats, handbags, and a ball dress.  Good quality, branded clothing from Cue, Max etc. can be found on Trademe with barely any wear and tear, for an amazing price!

Again, there are the ever-present risks of buying online, and in this case, you cannot return the goods, however, sizes are given, pictures are shown and a few paragraphs on the details of the item are written.  Below are a few clothing items that I have received (bought or gifted from others) from Trademe, including this beautiful ballgown.  All I had to do was sew some tulle on the bottom to make it longer, grow into it 😉 and voilla!  It fit beautifully 🙂

(This cream coat was given to my sister and I and finishes just above the knee.  It is very cute and I love the collar detailing.  Very smart, good evening wear.)

(This simple black blazer has been very useful.  I’ve worn it as a part of a costume for a drama I was in as well as wearing it to church and etc.)

(This white blazer was also bought from Trademe and in my opinion looks lovely with a bright pop of colour.)

Ok, so those are a few items that have been bought off Trademe.  Because most of the blazers were given to me, I’m not really sure of their price, but want to say something like $20 – $30?  Which is a very good price for a good quality, branded blazer which will last you a long time.

Trademe is a great site to buy other products off too.  I have my eyes on some red nail polish for the season.  It’s OPI and get this – it’s only $14!!!  Ridiculously cheap!

Merry Christmas to you all!  I’ll be bringing you a Christmas outfit post tomorrow and then hopefully some bits and pieces following that.

Blessings,

Hi All,

I think that this fashion photo shoot has been kicked off with a great start.  However, that last outfit wasn’t really what I would call a little different, however, the outfit I am showing today is.

We have combined a few fashion trends in this outfit which we hope you’ll like.

First off, the bright bold colours.  Colour blocking has been really ‘in’ this year and especially using the bright and bold plain colours.  White has also been used a lot, but I’ll come to that later.  Even though I haven’t been particularly following any fashion magazines at the moment, just by receiving our Ezibuy catalogue and walking through the local clothing shops, I have seen a definite trend.  Unfortunately the tail end of summer is finally petering out, however who says that you can’t carry the trends over to the beginning of autumn?!

Next, plain white blazers and blocks of white.  We even did a post on this a while back, go here to see it.  This trend has perhaps been one of the most dominant.  Plain blocks of white and particularly the use of white blazers over bright pops of colour have been the leading trend of this past summer.  So, by combining that with the bright bold colours, you’ll definitely be looking stylish.

Finally, by combining those two trends with the black business pants, you can pull off the autumn look quite well.  Of course, this outfit would be quite simple if it hadn’t been for our typical layering effect that we love so much.  You may have picked up that we are layering advocates.  By this I mean, that we believe by layering with frills, lace, or simply a cami and scarf, you can transform a formerly simple outfit into one of noticeable style.

Ok, well enough of the descriptions, have a look at it yourself!  This may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but if you want to revolutionize your business look and tone it down a little, then this is the way to go.

Thanks so much for spending your time here on Creative Touch.  We really value your support.
