...thrifting for the very first time! I don't know why I've never attempted it before - maybe it was due to the lack of consignment stores in Hong Kong. The idea of wearing old clothes isn't very en vogue there. But anyways, thanks to a quick crash course of into the art of thrifting by Hannah here and with the discovery of a great vintage store right in downtown Vancouver who are having a huge sale due to their moving to a new location, I decided to hop in and do some shopping. I did see this really nice gingham shirt as well, but it didn't fit so well in the bust area. Boooo. I have been trying to not be so materialistic and to devote more time to broadening the mind, and I guess because of all the time I've spent reading and studying for midterms that I've forgotten to go shopping. Impossible I know. Here are some of things I picked up but there's not a terrible amount because I was pressed for time. I will definitely be going back and take pictures of the whole process. Lastly I bought this white and red polka dot concoction of a dress that I can only say looks straight out of Gone With the Wind. I call it my Scarlet O'Hara dress. It was a wholly unpractical purchase but I knew I just had to get it. The dress looks so wonderful that I think it warrants a post of its own in the future. You will be seeing it soon.
