The thrifting diaries

Today was a rather chilly day , gloomy at least, my kind of weather so a trifting trip was in order. You know I love thrifting! Still, this isn’t a post of my latest thrifting finds more like what I’ve let go, because yes, I don’t buy every “treasure” I find. For example, today, I found a pair of Cavalli jeans, but I swear they were so ugly that even if they were given to me for free I wouldn’t take it. Imagine a pair of jeans that looks like grey wooden floors, not that is something wrong with wooden floors but they don’t look so good as a print.

I sometimes give up pieces in favor of friends but the only piece I regret the most is a Chanel J12 Superleggera watch, though not actually thrift because I found it at a used watches stand besides another pretty watch, a vintage Cartier. Back to the Chanel watch, the fun part is that I actually bought it, at a ridiculous price that I actually thought it’s a fake, a very good one by the way because I studied it a while, but it was really worn so I blamed the price on that. Paid the watch, walked three meters and then realize that I didn’t try it on, it struck me, the watch was so cheap and unsold because it was really small, it kinda fitted me but every time I’d wear it my hand would’ve gone blue. Such, such a pity…

Any thrifting stories?

    I go thrifting every week and there's always some goodies (brand goodies I mean) that I find, at ridiculous prices- today I found an Escada shirt, absolutely brilliant. I lovvvvve thrifting, you always get to have unique pieces that noone else has!

    Woaaa, my thoughts are running wild thinking what could that valentino thing be:X Pic pic pic:D

    I have a lot of experience with thrifting, i do it every week and i usually get pretty stuff or at least i buy for the sake of it:D Speaking of Cavalli jeans, it's funny how i bought a pair of his shorts a few days ago…I fell in love with them while in the shop but as soon as i got home i was like…wow, wtf? I'm not going to be wearing these anytime soon. So now my puppies play with them:))

    My wrist is really really tiny, I would love to buy your watch if you still have it of course 😀
    Lucky me, starting this October I'll be living in Tineretului so I sense a lot of thrift shopping for me.
