If there’s one thing I love doing, it’s hunting down a bargain. I mean, unless you’re new here, you’d probably know that already, right?! I find there’s something ever so thrilling about hunting down a pre-loved bargain, too. It’s a treasure hunt. You never know exactly what you’ll find, and finding something that someone has not even used, or worn once, for a fraction of the new price, is always the best part! And of course, there’s the environmentally friendly aspect of looking for pre-loved goodies that really is the icing on the cake, too. Shopping apps are my go-to and because of my love of the pre-loved, my fave is Gumtree, where I’ve bought kids toys, bikes, furniture and many other goodies. (And I’m not the only one – seven million Aussies visit Gumtree each month!)
So, you can imagine my excitement when the good people at Gumtree suggested I try and hunt down an outfit using their app. Of course I said yes, and because I have quite a few special events to go to this year, I turned the challenge into the ‘great Gumtree special occasion outfit’ hunt, and set about my search.
