Thrift shop

May 27, 2013

I’m gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I – I – I’m hunting, looking for a come-up
This is fucking awesome

Macklemore – Thrift Shop

 This silly song should be the thrift/charity / op Shopping anthem. You don’t believe me? Check out some more of the lyrics:

They be like, “Oh, that Gucci – that’s hella tight.” I’m like, “Yo – that’s fifty dollars for a T-shirt.” Limited edition, let’s do some simple addition Fifty dollars for a T-shirt – that’s just some ignorant bitch (shit) I call that getting swindled and pimped (shit) I call that getting tricked by a business That shirt’s hella dough And having the same one as six other people in this club is a hella don’t.

Poetry, right? haha. Anyway, I wish I could go to good thrift stores / charity shops more often.  One of my latest finds is, I think, from the 70’s and cost me £1 from Age UK. They’ve been doing a pound shop recently and they rarely put up anything retro but this one must have escaped the no old clothes policy they seem to have.

Expensive car, cheap clothes.

Deets- Dress – probably 70’s, thrifted at AgeUK, Carnaby Boots – Irregular Choice, via Ebay, Bag – Ahcahcum Muchacha, Coat – Zara (swap with Lili), Cardigan – Zara (sale),  Big Ass Beads – Thrifted from British Heart Foundation, Wooden Bangles – thrifted from several charity shops. If you look at the nails you’ll see that I’ve done them in several colours, in the outfit’s colour scheme 😀

I is classy, posing in ASDA.

Have you made any special finds recently?

    I would like to have more charity shops in my neck of the woods, but there’re just two in this little city, and some flea markets, but they’re not cheap enough for me!
    Your outfit is pretty cool, love that pleated dress, coat and booties combo, they look bohemian and chic!, and that huge beads necklace is awesome!

    Besides my awesome 50p ‘MauStein x Asos’ sunnies from the car boot sale the other week I have been staying away from buying more old stuff…I don’t really need to as I keep on finding bits and pieces in the house that I can’t even remember buying, I live in a thrift shop 😉
    Fabby outfit and I just love those awesome Irregular Choice Carnaby Boots…kick-ass!
    Hope you are having a brilliant time…xXx
