Luxe, sustainable style for less

I’m Michelle Newell and Op Shop Stylist is your inspo to feeling stylish, elegant and classic at any age - on a shoestring budget and with minimal impact on our beautiful environment and people!

I got a head start on op shopping (or ‘thrifting’ if you’re not in Australia) from my Grandma and Oma and Opa, who ran charity shops and vintage homeware stores when I was young. My favourite line? ‘Oh this dress? It was $10 from an op shop!’ 💎

#FoundintheWild is my next level adventure finding luxe homewares and clothing in ‘hard rubbish’ (aka the stuff people put out on the kerb for collection). Is it embarrassing? Sometimes! But worth it? My free $1000 stereo and collection of men’s cashmere jumpers say YES!

Now that I’m in in my 40s I still love op shopping but I buy less and restyle what I have. I’m also interested in discovering and supporting local and ethical fashion brands.
