I saw this lovely girl standing outside the back door of Zootz Hair Studio at 4th and Arbutus yesterday and two thoughts went through my head instantly. First: I want that dress and Secondly: I hope it cost her a pretty penny. No my friends, that dress was $3.99 at Value Village! I want it so bad! It is adorable, and Italian.
The dress is thrifted at Value Village and I am sure that purse sitting at the top of the steps is thrifted too. Please note the amazing hair dye job she is rocking! I sometimes wish I was that fearless with my hair but I have come to the conclusion that I am not.
After approaching her to see if I could get her picture, and asking where did she find this dress, we got into a little chat about thrifting. I had to agree with her on it being mostly about luck, you can go into a place on Monday and find nothing and then Tuesday find 10 things you love and are on sale. It is crazy! Also I think one of my favourite things is to check small town thrift shops when I am anywhere. I have found the best items at the cheapest prices in small towns, its like no one knows what gems they have!
So keep a look out people, you never know when thrift shop gold will fall in your lap.
