I’m not normally a fan of thrift shopping at Value Village. I mostly wear dresses and VV is double the price of Frenchy’s. I tend to stick to browsing the nick knacks and praying for Pyrex finds.
Since I’ve been purging a lot of my clothing over the past couple of months, I’ve whittled my dresses down to what I feel like is none. I thought I would browse the dresses, just incase. Half way through I felt like giving up. Nothing in my size, and I didn’t know what I was looking for. Not to mention everything was ugly or overpriced and from Old Navy. I saw a homemade vintage dress for $49!!! Insane. Shameful! I just wanted to leave. There was nothing for me. Because I was trying to kill time, I started looking through the next smaller size. That’s when I hit the jackpot. Although I’m a loooong way off from a size small, I found two small dresses that fit me. Umm.. hello vanity sizing.
I love this first one, denim and white leopard print might not be for everyone, but it embodies everything I love! It’s by the brand Dex and was $7.99 plus 30% off.
Next I found this Aritzia dress that I had already purchased before from a consignment shop. I believe it was regularly $130 or something, I paid $80 secondhand (it was new with tags and I thought it said $60) eventually I consigned it back to them. An easy sale. So, for $14.99 plus 30% off I thought I could at least reconsign it. It’s burnt out velvet, swing style.Lastly I found a cute Pete’s Frootique reusable tote bag. It was .69 cents plus 30%. I actually already had the little pouch it folds down into. I didn’t take a picture because who cares!
