Shopping in LA

Yesterday was our first full day in LA.

I scouted out a few thrift stores to visit and we set out on our journey.

My outfit!!

We started with Savers.

It feels exactly like a Value Village back home, I was not a fan. The prices were high and the selection was subpar.

They did however had some Christian Louboutin Mary Janes behind the display for $225. But upon closer inspection they prove to be fake :(. Soon to the next location we went.

I actually had a lot of hope for Good Will. These lovely vloggers I follow shop there all the time and come up with amazing things.

Again, it was a let down. The Thrift Gods just weren't smiling down at me today.

My last planned stop was to American Vintage. The location is in Fullerton, and I must say it was a charming little stretch of street we landed on.

We ended up at Modex first thinking maybe it replaced American Vintage? And I'm glad we did.

This thrift store was condensed from a much larger one in Anaheim before. The owners wanted to downsize and sieved out all the best things to fill this little gem of a store. Finally I was successful. We also found out, American Vintage is still open and only a couple of stores down.

It was buy one get one half off too! Finally, my luck has turned.

After filling our bellies with the BEST burgers I have ever had from Burger Parlor. I developed an appetite for outlet shopping. The Desert Hills Premium Outlet was just the treat I needed.

Stay tuned for my shopping reveals.

My Maison Martin Margiela

Yesterday was the release of the Maison Martin Margiela for H&M collaboration. I went in the morning to try my luck, but the collaboration wasn't going to open to the public until 11:30am.

Duty calls, so I proceeded onto my day job. Besides, I was not able to get any decent photos with all the glare in the windows anyway.

I returned at night and was delighted to find a good number of items still available.

Plus, evening light makes much better display window photos.

Look at these crazy amazing shoes!

But I really want that leather jacket.

Inside, I headed straight for the accessories table and nabbed myself the waterfall choker. As I looked up, the nude bodysuit with integrated bra and the deconstructed leather jacket are both still available!! Hastily I ran to the fitting room with swag in tow.

The jacket looks pretty good on me I think. Aside from the fact that it was probably two sizes too small >.<

At the present state, there is no way on God's Green Earth I was going to be able to zip it up. Damn those Euro sizes.

Then there is the bodysuit!

As expected, I totally love it! Except it too was two sizes too small. I felt like I was being vacuum sealed inside of it.

But they do look awesome worn together.

Disappointed to the fact that I may only make it out with the choker, I returned to try my luck once again.

Lo and behold, the bodysuit was still available in an array of sizes. Delighted, I grabbed the appropriate size and headed on my way.

Look at that shopping bag, big enough to house these guys.

Really, it only housed these guys.

I love how all the items are re-editions of Maison Martin Margiela garments from various seasons. The bodysuit is circa SS 2007.

The collection is also about re-translating as well. Especially evident in the leather jacket, as it is made from pieces of men's jackets and reformed in a more feminine silhouette.

No doubt my dreams were all filled with deconstructed garments coming back together again..

Maybe I will just buy it. Zipping up jackets is overrated anyway.
