I managed to do some super serious epic thrifting this weekend, and emerged from Value Village unscathed with a few solid gold finds. Also, I apologize to any and all manifestations of summer for my complete and utter inability to wear colour.
1. Navy 'Modrobes' skirt, which is size Large and so huge on me that it makes a tulip shape when I adjust the best buckle waistband. It's a total throwback to 1999, when pretty much every kid in public school owned a pair of crayola-coloured Modrobes hospital pants. I conducted a short lived nostalgic experiment involving a thrifted pair of purple Modrobes in first-year University, but I think this skirt is here to stay.
2. 1990s throwback platform sandals. I've been scouring eBay for a pair of dark brown Kork Ease sandals in my size, but to no avail - not that it would matter with this bloody Canada Post strike. Anyways, these squishy platforms are almost exactly what I've been looking for. I wore them yesterday (with jeans) and they felt like walking on marshmallows, but today they chewed up my feet and spit them out.
3. The ORIGINAL Royal Wedding mug, with Charles and Diana. I was so excited to find this piece of retro Royalty kitsch, until my friend shot me down by saying; "Isabel, that mug is making me sad because they got divorced and now she's dead."
