On Tuesday night, my favourite local vintage store had a rummage sale of all their left over clothes and stuff, and everything was for sale at the nearly unbeatable* price of $2. Like, HOLY! Only the sale of my dreams. Heaping mounds of affordable vintage in the basement of a church. I say yes.
So here's what I managed to score!
^Above^, two light green/blue/minty slips with lacy trim (I am so excited to wear these under skirts!), and one pair of wool pants that fit my legs nicely (they will be perfect for the winter)
A calgary stampede sweater from 1992 (it's super warm and it has HORSES all over it), and the coziest granny sweater with the sweetest buttons
A hard rock café amsterdam tee shirt which I chopped up so it is now a tank top (there's actually a great story of my dad's I can tell every time I wear it...), and a plain yellow tee shirt with these adorable switzerland guys on the back.
and... these two gorgeous shirts! The brown one has some thread coming apart, but hey! I know how to sew and the embroidered butterflies were too much to pass up. And then the red gingham shirt on the right is only the shirt of my dreams... it has a little rip under the armpit but once again my skills with a needle and thread (or a sewing machine. whatever) will make everything okay.
So that is all!
I am currently reading The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (I'm only about 2/3 of the way through, NO SPOILERS) but all I can say is, it is killing me (not literally... that was an awful context for the use of that metaphor). It makes me simultaneously sad and happy and enlightened and angry and just everything. It's seriously an amazing book, and so far I would recommend you read it.
