Recently I went to the Value Village on Hastings with my boyfriend for a date. I didn’t expect to find anything in that particular location because it is always picked over.
But I found something, the thrifting gods found me something that fits and is paisley in the blazer section. However, the weird thing is the label inside the jacket says it’s a dress. At one point it may had been but it looks better as a jacket. It’s a bit too (ahem) scandalous to be a dress in its current form with only 3 fasteners on the front.
My rule for thrifting/ vintage shopping (so that my closet is not totally out of control) is if the item fits and if I will wear it in my everyday life I will buy it. Repeat this rule after me like a mantra (even if it’s going to hurt to let that piece go) because there will be more money for other, better things. (Or paying the bills, that’s important too).
