Angel Fingers

No spirit fingers here, we're all about the angels. Angel stuff. Angelic places. Anglicare is one such place. It might look like a hell hole, but dig a little deeper and you'll find some heavenly pay-by-the-kilo treasures.


Anglicare is the Summer Hill sorting warehouse from which the donation-run organisation distribute clothes and knick knacks to their 16 Sydney stores. Simply, it is massive (as well as incredibly exhausting). Clothes are inordinately piled and packed into trolleys and after spending two and a half hours there, the surface had barely been skimmed.

On Saturdays they open up about half of the warehouse, while during the week you can only access a quarter or so, but either way you'll find some goodies.

Four and a half kilos and an incredible Summer heat later (outfit regrettably being more Spring than Summer), we were absolutely knackered. Fantastic.

Camel vest: Surry Hills markets
Egg broach: birthday gift from the boy's super lovely house mates
Scarves as top: also birthday gifts from an awesome neighbour
Black top under scarves: Agent 99
Button up top as skirt: Nu & Nan
Green leather belt: mollini (i think)
Navy tights: avocado
Socks: old and (damn) mismatched
Aviators: John Sundry's.
