Camberwell Market Haul!

If you are from Melbourne, you are most likely familiar with the Camberwell Market. This market is held every Sunday from 7am till 12:30pm and is located on Station St in Camberwell. It can be a treasure trove filled with second-hand and hand-crafted goods, from clothing and accessories to candles and soaps. I find that this market can be hit or miss and it really depends on what everyone is selling. I recently went to a Camberwell Market with my friend from 'The Secret Garden of Eve'  and picked up a few goodies at some great prices! 


This blazer was $1! Can you believe that?! Talk about a bargain! I'm not the biggest 'pink clothes' fan and come to think about it, I don't have anything pink in my wardrobe, but this blazer is a beautiful light, dusty pink that fits me extremely well and for $1 how could I refuse??? Plus, I can see it now with some light denim shorts and a white blouse. Can you tell I'm already wishing for summer even though we haven't hit winter yet?!

These light denim shorts were $5 and fit me around the waist, but I'm not entirely convinced about the cut. They were a bit baggy when I tried them on at home and I'm not quite sure if the cut is for me. 

Can we see a summer theme here?? I really did try to find winter clothing but I guess it just wasn't meant to be that day! This white lace dress is a size 4 from Forever New and looks brand new. It's not too long and not too short (hits me around mid-thigh on my 5ft tall self!) This will be such an easy-breezy dress in summer and was only $3! 


The most expensive item of the trip was this tassel necklace, which was $7. It was on the pricier side for the markets; however, it's totally on trend and fell in love with it straight away. I couldn't leave it there! I'm also considering detaching one of the tassels and making it a single black tassel necklace which would be a good layering piece and great for casual days :)

This silver statement necklace was $5 and will be perfect for those basic outfits.. think skinny jeans, white t-shirt/blouse and a black blazer, which often tends to be my go-to outfit when I don't know what to wear! I love how accessories can bring life to an outfit!

I'd have to say that my favourite purchase was the light pink blazer. Whilst I have blazers aplenty in my wardrobe I have nothing in this colour and it was a steal at $1. 

Anyway, that concludes my Camberwell Market Haul!
Until next time,
Jess :)
