Last weekend I made a trip up to Kelowna to visit my man. He has recently moved there for work. On Monday he went into work and I drove around learning the city. I tried to hit up as many thrift shops as possible. I always find the best things in small city thrift shops. Kelowna was no different. I found this gem of a sparkly dress at a tiny, tiny store hidden off the main streets. It wasn't even on the racks yet, but the sparkle caught my eye from the back storage area and I insisted the let me try it on. One of the ladies working was sure it would not fit. Well it fit like a glove! I had to have it but haggled with them over the price. $10 bucks! I would have to pay atleast $50 for such a find in Vancouver.

Look at the detail on the fabric covered buttons. The only thing is that it is a little see through but at that price I can afford to get a slip for underneath.

So next time you take a trip out of town I suggest popping into any small town thrift shop, you never know what treasures await you. Happy Hunting!

Good find!! I LOVE thrift stores and completely agree that small city stores that are tucked away from the main streets are the best. Now I really want to go!! ;)
