Seems like awhile since I have thrifted.
The online retailing world was lured me away from my roots. It's the daily bombardment of emails and ads and facebook feeds.
But one trip is all it takes to remind me of why I fell in love with the sport of thrifting in the first place.
There is little that is more satisfying than finding that seriously amazing piece of treasure that countless people have passed up on and knowing that I have paid next to nothing for it. Oh, and part of that money I spend goes towards a charitable cause. Plus it's eco fashion. Oh the benefits! Why did I ever stop?
This haul is not as big as some of my previous ones, but it's safe to say I love all of the items. Michael came with me again, and he found some amazing pieces, too.
He didn't make out with too much, but they are all great items.
My favourite item would have to be those United Colors of Benetton slim fit corduroys.
That is until these amazing Florsheim wing tips.
Effortlessly, they make a great casual pulled together outfit.
I highly encourage you to visit our local thrift shop. But if that is not your thing, here's where you can find these items online.
Similar hoodie here or here.
Same shoes here.
Similar corduroys here.
Here are my spoils.
I can't wait to style out these items.
I also got some shoes.
But my favourite item of the day would HAVE to be this vintage Danier leather jacket?
My iPhone white balance is whack, the piece is supposed to be the green color you see on the top right. It fits me like a glove! I definitely can't wait to style this one out.
Oh yeah, I got an oversized wool coat and a tribal print jacket as well.
Here's an impromptu outfit pulled from the items not individually photographed.
Similar jacket here.
Similar shit here.
Similar cowboy boots here.
Similar coat here.
I hope you too would take some time out to do some of your own hunting. Now, go forth and prosper.
