…and then there are those moments when you find that special thing.

here’s the deal with shopping: it blows. yea, it’s not that great. firstly, there’s the crowds – people everywhere. then you have to carry all the stuff. put on top of that that you have to spend hard earned cash? it’s the worst.

vintage shopping however gives me more of a thrill. you have to get creative. and there’s always a rush when you find that one special thing. for me, it was the fateful day i found this elie tahari tweed skirt suit. it was originally $700 USD, i got it for $40. i don’t think you heard me. FORTY MODDA FREAKIN’ DOLLAZ! a designer skirt suit. psch!

the rush to my head was too real. i felt stuck in time, like i was dreaming. the baby was even tailored for me. best deal of my life!
now no one can tell me nothin’. normal retail shopping is for the birds. it’s vintage and thrifting for the win!
