HYPE 39


This Milly jacket is the second of two gems that I stumbled upon during a recent thrifting trip - this skirt was the other one. If you've been here for a while, you probably know that thrifting isn't one of my skills. I am prone to getting overwhelmed and easily frustrated when faced with a vast array of clothing that contains only a select few desirable pieces. After all, shopping is supposed to be fun - it shouldn't take work. I've finally had a change of heart after visiting local consignment store Turnabout with my friend Sheryl. It could have just been good timing, or good company, but I went into the fitting room with close to twenty pieces - and if my budget had allowed it, probably would have come home with half of them! I'm not about to take up thrifting as a hobby - part of me is still shocked by the good luck I had that day and isn't quite convinced it will ever be repeated - but I'm definitely beginning to understand the appeal of the idea that there are fashionable gems out there just waiting for some lucky - and determined - shopper to discover them. What are your thoughts on thrifting?

Great finds, really stylish stuff! I could be a beginner's luck, but you should try again :) There are lots of nice things in these thrift stores waiting to be found!
