Hey! I’m back with a new post!! Today I’ll be sharing with you my first second-hand purchases. I went thrift shopping!!!! Is it weird that I found it so exciting? I went to a few thrift stores downtown Toronto, on Queen St. W, and found a few things I’m quite proud of haha. There’s only three items, but I wanted to show you them before any future outfit posts! I don’t know why, I just think these babies deserved it. For my first time thrift shopping, I’d say I did okay.. or am I a total noob? Don’t tell me, cause I’d be crushed! Anyways, here are my finds!

My first find was this scarf. Lately I’ve been seeing this trend where people are wearing these tapestry-looking scarves and I became interested. I mean, its definitely not a trend I’d fully invest in. So I found this scarf for $3 at a Salvation Army Thrift Store! Am I good, or am I good?!

My second find was this old band t-shirt. It’s a Nirvana t-shirt. Yes, I don’t really listen to them but I like the look. I know, it’s shameful. It’s in a size XL, so I’m probably going to wear as a dress! It was $10!

My last find was this vintage skirt AND I LOVE IT!! I paid $20, which isn’t very cheap, but it’s like the perfect fit for me. I have always wanted a midi/maxi skirt but because I’m so vertically challenged, everything usually drags on the floor. So when I found this little treasure that fit my waist, didn’t drag on the ground, AND was vintage, I couldn’t say no!! I can’t wait to style this piece and show it to you all!

So there you have it, my very first thrift finds. I enjoyed the experience so much that I can promise you I will be sharing more finds in the future. Hope you guys are having a happy December so far!

Meet Avery

In every outfit I’ve posted so far, I’ve pictured myself with the sickest, most fab, small, black crossbody bag. Perfect for everyday and just all-around gorgeous. I told myself I wasn’t going to settle for something simple and cheap. “I will literally use this every day and wear the crap out of it.” – What I told myself.

So that settled it (doesn’t take much haha). I was going to purchase a designer bag. I was going to fork out that hard earned Topshop cash and buy a sexy Rebecca Minkoff, and I did just that. Let me introduce you to Avery!! I’ve mentioned her before but she is my new found lover and ultimate companion.

If you haven’t been paying any attention to a word I have said. I am clearly a bag lover. Purses or bags, whatever you want to call them… I’m obsessed. Buy me a gorgeous purse and I’m yours hunny! I’m that crazy bag lady!

Which leads me to asking, what are you crazy about? Bags, shoes, food, kittens… let me know in the comments below! ;D
