Seychelles, Mauritius



Since returning home, I've picked up where I left off in terms of one of my hobbies: thrifting. Being something of a compulsive shopper with a closet that is stuffed to the brim, I always seem to find things I absolutely cannot live without. Today it happened to be a black tie-dye longsleeve, a tiny floral grunge dress, leather boots and an amazing royal blue band jacket/cardigan. Well, its really a cardigan with band jacket-style detailing on it. My mom said it was "obviously made in the Michael Jackson era." How can I argue?


Modeling my new thrift finds!

I'm feeling the boots.
The jacket reminds me of the "royal" family.
Your porch is really pretty.

dearilou said...

Yep. That definitely looks like my old marching band uniform, except your new jacket is likely more flattering.

That royal blue cardigan is to die for!

Nikita said...

Wow you did so well! Sometimes thrifting can be hit or miss based on the store, and you def hit the mark!

The boots are perfect. I wanna wear them with cut offs and a sheer top and beach hairr haha

The boots look really nice and chic, too bad thrift shoes in my size are either barbie sandals or worn out football boots.

i finish school in 4 weeks and i am literally counting down the days till i can make pillow cases and finally learn to crochet without feeling terribly guilty, jealous of your holiday time, makes me miss living in montreal even more :-(

That dress is otherworldly. Love it.

That sweater is like a less obnoxious Balmain jacket. I love it!

Envious.
Girls have way more fashion options, not fair.
Is that an Of Montreal shirt?
Think it is.
Want a "manly" version of that cardigan.

I just moved the other day and realized how I don't really have any clothes....I need a good Value Village weekend. The one by your house kills anything we have downtown Toronto! Damn hipsters.
