Bargain Berets

Pinup on a Budget

 As most of you know, pinup styling can get quite expensive!

 So Ive decided to start a regular post on some of my best bargain buys, I love anything that looks great and that can save me some coins and I hope you do too...

So to kick it off, my first bargain find was the ever so cute beret.
Being winter I wanted something that kept my head warm whilst also suited my outfits, and Im sorry but I personally can not pull off a beanie and a full skirt.

Looking in every boutique possible I saw prices ranging from $10-$30, and for a plain coloured beret I thought this was outrageous. 
So I turned to my old faithful friend.. eBay!! 

I was so happy to see eBay had not let me down,and  I scored these beauties for $2.59 each with FREE postage! (see link at bottom of post)

Yes they did take a couple of weeks to come from Hong Kong.. but I was willing to wait considering I got all four colours for the price of one at the shops, and when they arrived I was not disappointed..

Skirt & belt: Pinup Girl Clothing
Earrings: Lovisa
 Top: Cardigan from Kmart (appliqué added by me) 
Jeans: Jay Jays 
Top: Heart of Haute
Capris: Pinup Girl Clothing
Earrings: Lovisa

They come in a range of colours and are super soft to touch. 
Heres a link to the buyer that I purchased mine from http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Hot-Sale-Beautiful-Newest-Fashion-Warm-Winter-Women-Beret-Beanie-Hat-Cap-Wool-/181778616214?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_15&var=&hash=item2a52d98f96 otherwise just searching 'wool berets' on eBay would take you to a full list.

I really hope this post has helped, if you liked it please make sure to follow my blog and leave comments/ feedback swell.

Keep watching for more Pinup on a Budget finds!

Much Love

  1. Perfect series...follow you on Instagram. I just started dressing retro again and starting from scratch. I love the idea of you adding the applique to a plain cardigan. Look forward to more in the series....as I revamp my blog will be doing a few similar posts.
