plumbing the depths

I have only been here 5 days and I think I have successfully exhausted my meager thrifting budget.

I've spent 1 day with Audra, trolling North Portland's finest vintage and thrift options and 1 day with Claire going to far corners in the SE (to not only shop but to buy strange things at a Russian deli and eat them in the parking lot) and I have found, among other things, cheetah face palazzo pants, a 60s Peter Pan collar dickie (verrryyy Miu Miu), 3 pairs of really important shoes, the perfect denim shirt, a sheer polka dot dress, and some bike shorts.

I am in heaven, basically.

Audra took me took a bunch of places, thrift and vintage. I liked Lady Bird, the prices were beyond fair (I got a dgeat dress for $10) and I liked the vibe.



Regrettably unpurchased: both sunglasses AND pasties.


The Oregon Leather Co. Wowza.



Russian delicacies. Is a cookie? Is it a cracker? WHO KNOWS! DON'T WORRY, BE HAPPY!




MAGIC STICKS (with cacao glaze!).


Lovely vintage shoe score. $7 bones! The leather weaves up into laces! They are sling back with a low heel. I love them so so very much. They are proving to be controversial with normies.


CONTROVERSIAL SHOE SCORE? A knockoff of high-heeled Timberlands.
I don't know what to say.

I kept picturing them with tights and little dresses and a denim coat. It feels really fun to me for the fall. They were only 5 dollars, I am gonna be FREE to act on my WHIMS. You should too!!!!

I will try to start doing proper outfit pics to show some more of my scores..I just hate the way I am looking lately- not very CAMERA READY!!!!

Regretting selling my "Jenny From The Block" heeled Timberlands (also knock-offs) and I can't wait to see outfit posts. You have procured some kick-ass stuff!

PS Props on the Karen Walker sunnies but I am a biased Kiwi.

Your two new shoes are gorgeous. Very drool-worthy.
I will always love looking at pictures of vintage shops in other countries since Dublin only has one decent one.
(P.S Love the new header <3)

if you have time while on the west coast you should try and get to kirkland (just outside seattle). lots of great antique/vintage/thrift. not the greatest prices but certainly not the worst and there are some really weird pieces out there..

I will be able to use the bypass option much more than half the time. Given that, it seems like an idea worth implementing. But hey, I could be wrong. Lee
