A VETERAN of thrift store fashion finds has come up aces with an incredibly well-timed purchase.

This stylish Australian lady found the frock of her life when she set eyes on a wedding dress that fit her perfectly.

So amazing was the sizing that this bridal gown needed no adjustments whatsoever.

It also saved her thousands.

It first caught the attention of Poppy Delilah (@poppydelilah_) in a Sydney thrift store.

It had been thrown hastily onto a hanger and bunched together with other dresses.

But she saw the potential and was smitten.

Poppy's TikTok bio is simply “bits and bobs." She has a keen eye for fashion and brings her own inimitable take on different outfits.

Her platform is populated with videos of her wardrobe choices for the day, many of them thrift store buys.

The dress for the big day, however, was an epic find.

“I thrifted my wedding dress," she said in her post.

“I snapped this picture in June 2021 before going into lockdown for six months," she said.

That was when she first set eyes on the gown, a white satin, floor-length, strapless dream.

Luckily for her, it remained languishing in the store half a year later.

“I went back in January 2022 and she was still there waiting on the rack."

When Poppy tried it on, it was clear this dress just got better.

“She fitted perfectly with no alterations needed,” she said.

Fans of her post fell in love with her thrift store wedding dress with many saying it definitely had “princess vibes.”

“The best thrift find of my life," was her final and happy verdict as she showed it off on her special day.

Commenters were bowled over.

“That dress is everything," said this fan.
