Listen to Xavier Rudd


Epic thrift! I went to Value Village for the first time in months (literally), and really made up for the lost time with all the awesome stuff I got. I've been dying for some 90s florals, so this romper totally made my afternoon. All I need are my Doc Martens and a Walkman to blast Nirvana at full volume. The rest of the body count includes these white leather Chloe-esque flats, a Harry Potter shirt, a thick-knit sweater vest, a ruffly shirt and a beaded shrug.


I've only got a week left of my first year of University! Somehow I have to make the good times last, because I am not ready to let go and move back home for four months. How the hell did this year go by so fast?

Girl, those shoes are bangin'! Are you graduating as well?

I've got the 5 day countdown going and then, in similar fashion, I am planning a trip to value village to quell these thrifting pains.

What I love is that in quebec they call it "villages des valeurs". A bit of a facelift, no?

That floral dress is awesome!! Super nice :)

Amelia said...

Wow, you're almost done with school? I've still got around 2 months, too. Those flats are the best find ever! I can never find good shoes at the thrift store.

Deua said...

did you get these shoes at value village too? :O
shit! they are perfect! why don't I find nice stuff like that when I go there?

I agree with you on those nineties florals. I think there might be some old hand-me-down dresses in the attic that I could search through, and if not, thrift stores always are packed with them. Docs should of course be the footwear of choice. Sadly my Doc-esque boots (bought for $5 at the thrift store years ago) completely fell apart while I was snowshoeing up in the mountains this winter. Maybe that means it's time for a real pair.

My goodness, that was rambling. I like those flats as well, they're quite nice.

I love the way you're wearing the romper with the shoes, really pretty.
Don't forget to get contact info from your school chums. You can't count on them calling you. xo

I'm so jealous of that romper. I'm on the lookout for some cute ones since my summer job has a no skirts or dresses rule. (Don't you just love loopholes? haha)

Those flats are superbly fantastic as well. Good finds!!
