Low Budget Fashion Bonnie Doran - Restyle Perth Fashion Festival

WESTMINSTER resident Bonnie Doran is getting back to basics with style and flair as part of the Perth Fashion Festival’s Restyle initiative.
The author of popular fashion blogs Bonnie Friday and Friday’s Kid, Doran and nine other Perth bloggers will showcase affordable and environmentally friendly fashion by op-shopping and buying nothing new during the month of August.
Doran said she wanted to be a part of the project because she had a weakness for op shopping, and wanted to show people it could be fashionable as well as budget friendly.
“Who can resist a unique piece at a bargain price and being able to inspire people to go down to their local charity shop and give back to the community while shopping is something I'm really passionate about,” Doran said.
“People often forget that charity shopping isn't just retro – in the last month I have found Preen shorts, a Shakuhachi leather jacket, leather Bettina Liano shorts and brand new Lee jeans, all for under $20 each.
“If you have the time to scour the racks you will definitely some away with some stylish pieces.”
The 20-year-old law student rates the Salvation Army in Maylands and the Good Samaritans in Balcatta as her favourite places to find vintage gems and she would face the 31-day challenge with the belief that op shopped pieces could be worked into any outfit.
“Designer pieces can be offset with vintage and basics can be dressed up with any number of pieces hiding in the racks of your local store,” she said.
“While buying nothing new for 30 days might be a challenge for me, I'm confident that my readers will be surprised by the quality of the pieces I've found at bargain prices.”
During PFF the Restyle on the Runway event will showcase the most stylish and innovative looks from the 30 Days of Restyle project.
- The Perth Fashion Festival runs from September 19-25.
