Me and my lovely mother went to a couple of our favourite thrift stores today. I found a ton of stuff:
These bags! The red and white one was so odd that I had to buy it. My mom thinks it’s made out of old bleach bottles. I think I’ll put magazines in it or something as it’s not very practical to carry around. The blue Yamaha one has a name on the bottom, which is pretty cool too. And they were all $1. :)
As soon as I saw this top, I knew I would end up buying it. I have too many shiny items of clothing as it is, but it would look so good belted at the waist… and for $8!
This is another top that I knew would look good belted. I’m in love with the pattern. $5 I think?
SCARVES! The white one has the most amazing texture to it, almost like a ruffled chip, and these two look great together. $1 each.
Belts and suspenders and sweatervests, oh my!
I have a thing for belts. I probably have around 25, and I usually buy at least one when I go to a thrift store. The brown one has the coolest buckle ever. And I’ve been looking for suspenders and a sweatervest forever! Everything was $3 each.

A successful day, I think!

I haven’t looked through my mom’s closet in a LONG time, and when she was showing me a nice blazer she bought I saw a few of her old things that caught my eye. She’s kept a bit of clothing from over the years, and most of it is stuff that my grandma made from scratch for her. She used to be an amazing seamstress, but sadly she’s got alzheimers now so she can’t do it anymore. I think my mom likes to see the clothes that were made for her being worn again, and they all fit me quite well because my mom used to have very similar measurements to my current ones.
I love the vest as I’ve been meaning to get one for FOREVER, and the blazer is very nice too and fits me perfectly. I don’t think I’ll have much of a chance to wear it, though.
