FROM THE MORNING

IMG_7598 IMG_7608 IMG_7597
This morning, I broke my own rule "never check FB first thing in the morning". I'm not a morning person so checking FB right when I wake up always bums me out! No more, I swear. Then, I had an errand to run, but it didn't work out either. I bought myself a chocolate éclair to make things better and headed home. After lunch, I went thrifting. The best stores are around the métro stop Hotel de Ville. There's a thrift store on every street! Or so it seems... I went into seven or eight thrift stores but actually only ended up buying things in the second one I went into. Two dresses and a skirt, each only – wait for it – one euro!! Unbelievable. I tried them on, but the one downside to thrift stores is that they never have mirrors in the dressing rooms. I crossed my fingers and handed over the 3 euros. Walk, walk, walk, walk, walk, walk... my legs were killing me! Finally some hours later, I took the métro back home. Once in my room, I quickly undressed and tried the new dresses on again. One is too big and too long but luckily we have a friend that can sew and has been mending my clothes for the past few years. It's such a weird and awesome dress though! The other dress is amazing. It's a red summer dress with white flowers and I. love. it. I can't wait till it's summer so I can wear it! There is usually a "1 euro" treasure chest in each store. It's giant, it's messy, you have to go through a lot of crap to come up with something beautiful, but when you do, it's heaven! You need patience, and you need space. I'll be back with a list of thrift stores I love soon! Cheers! Vx

So funny, it's been an unspoken rule for me every morning since 2007 to check my facebook. The past two years i've done it in bed from my phone every morning! It wakes me up!

Jealous of your thrifting adventures. I'm in NYC and have such a hard time finding cheap thrift stores.

Love your blog.
