MR. WOLF


I had a hayday at Value Village's 50 percent off sale - and so did Rai ! Apparently super cheap thrift stores are hard to come by in Australia. He stocked up on tons of button-ups, sweaters, hats and shoes. It really was crazy how much he got for so little cash. I didn't find as much but I ended up getting 2 blouses (one shown below), a sweater, a skirt I'm going to alter, and a bag (shown below). 

Things I look for when thrift shopping:
-interesting prints - like this clock pattern! grooovyyyyy
-unique details on blouses such as fancy embellished collars - the other blouse i got has pearls along the collar
-high waisted "mom" shorts (hard to find these days)
-skirts that I can shorten or alter

I never have much luck finding shoes unfortunately ! I guess that's what happens when you're one of the most common shoe sizes. 


shoes from urban outfitters, shirt and bag thrifted, shorts from urban behavior, earrings from aldo.


Don't you love Rai's Mickey Mouse shirt? Great find indeed. The bowtie is from a vintage shop in Winnipeg called "Vintage Glory" (in the Exchange District).

  3. I always look for the exact same stuff as you do when I go thrifted shopping!
    Unfortunately the secondhand shops here are way to expensive..

  4. You guys both discovered some fantastic thrifted finds! The pattern on the shirt is very eye catching, and the bow tie on Rai is the cherry on top.

  12. I love that clock print on your shirt. Very cool and original! Mom shorts are hard to find for you? I find them all the time! Like, tons. I guess that's because I'm not really in any sort of fashion-y area.

  14. Wow, what great finds you got. I love the clock pattern and that bag is so cute. I'm in the same situation when it comes to thrifting shoes! There's a thrift store in my area called Value Village too. Love it :)
