Some days, I'll walk on in to an op shop and emerge half an hour later empty handed. Other days, I'll leave with half the shop in my bag. Today was one of those days. Vinnies had just put out a whole new "season" of clothes and boy did I score. The thing about op shops is that they are mostly made up of fairly run-of-the-mill brands, but some days, like today, you'll hit the jackpot. Now, I must tell you that the clothes I bought for myself were pretty stock standard, albeit mostly new and quite nice, but I came across one of those op shop finds we all dream of: a 100% silk dress from Brown Sugar. I just had a look on line, and a dress like that would normally retail at over $100.
I paid $8. BUT. And it's a big but. It's not my size. And I knew it wasn't my size when I bought it, but I just HAD to buy it? Am I right? I couldn't let a find like that slip through my fingers! So I stood there, holding the dress, and thought of who I might be able to pass it on to, and after coming up with a few names, I made my purchase. I really hope that it fits my friend and she likes it! But if not, I'm sure we'll be able to think of someone else to pass it on to.
I do love op shop shopping!!!
