Paula is one of the most resourceful women I know, finding value and potential in things where-ever she goes.  This week her outfit was a blend of old and new,  handmade and chain-store bought, upcycled and original…

“The top was actually a cheap dress that I bought, and I shortened it to this length.  I liked the fabric.  I am often drawn to fabrics, and so that’s my starting point.  I will buy things new from K-Mart or where-ever because I like the fabric and then I will change something to make it my own. The jeans are oldies I have had for probably ten years or so, and the belt was picked up on Trade Me.  I bought the silver pendant at The Christmas Market and the leather and pony-skin cuff was from The Beehive.   I have imported these bags from Bali, they are so beautiful and handmade too”.
