Is thrift shopping something you like to do?
I have told you before that I would give thrift shopping a chance while I was in England. I also said that I knew wich store I would visit because they have always a very beautiful dress in the window. In the Netherlands I never thrift shop because I hate the smell in those stores. And I don’t feel comfortable in second hand stores. But I want to give it a honest chance. And I like everything better in England, so my choice was made. Well, I went to that store and for the first time in years there was no stylish dress in the window. Just a simple black&white tunic. Okay, I went inside but what normally hangs in the window was not a reflection of what was inside. I am a terrible ,,sewer pit,,( I don’t think this is the right word) in the area of hygiëne and I was very resisted to search for a nice bargain. This wasn’t the shop for me.
I also visited a second hand store in Hastings, well I actually stayed outside. There were a few racks with clothing outside, And at some point I saw a beautiful dress, right size too. With a big STAIN! Yugh! That’s what I did not need on my thrift shopping experience! And I immediately decided that I didn’t want to check the store inside anymore. A bit stupid because in this window there hung a very nice dress. Later I had a few regrets that I didn’t give thrift shopping a better chance. So in five weeks I am going back and I will explore the shops better and even take pictures and perhaps show you a purchase! But for now I leave you with a new dress. I was allowed to choose several dresses for a collaboration. This is the second maxi dress, you can find the first one here.
Dress: here c/o
Jacket: old, but very nice one here*
Sandals: old, but I like these here* too
Enjoy your week!
