I wore this on Saturday. Chris and I teamed up with my mom to go thrifting in the town of Alajärvi. The compulsive shopping quiz results didn't bring me down, but I have to admit that I felt more aware of my shopping habits than usual as I was browsing through the clothing racks. Despite my weird scores, I still feel like I'm on the right track, but I guess it's never a bad thing to just stop and listen, to find confirmation that things are okay.
I bought my first ever little black dress for myself (more on that later), and a few other things to take down to my sister's second hand shop in Helsinki. Have I written about Frida Marina? Yikes, I can't remember. It's an awesome shop and I am really proud of my sister. Every now and then I take some second hand treasures to be sold there, including pieces I've "saved" from the charity shops here in the countryside. Like I mentioned in a previous post, I just feel amazed that no one here wears or understands vintage, so I like to think of myself as a vintage clothing adoption agent of sorts. I pick up old, used stuff here, clean it and fix it at home, and send it off to Frida Marina to find a new home. Those Helsinki hipsters - they know good stuff when they see it!
Everything I am wearing is second hand, except for the tights. (Oops, I forgot to wear shoes again.)
