Thrift Shopping? Try Everything On!

Image by Nick Warzin.

Who: Natalia at Juxta-posing

What: Vintage floral silk dress

A boutique in Toronto called Tabula Rasa, which sells both new stuff and reworked vintage. The girl who runs the store found the dress and shortened it to its current above-the-knee length.

How Much: $59. A splurge, but I had to have it.

When I Use It:
“Whenever I feel like looking like a million bones. This thing is airy and girly and flowy, and fits me absolutely perfectly.”

Shopping Tips: “Try everything on–even if you don’t know it’ll work! I was eyeballing this dress in the store, thinking ‘I don’t think it’ll quite fit in the waist,’ but it was like the thing was made for me. And if you’re shopping for vintage online, know your measurements!”

HEY, BLOG READERS! We know you’re the cleverest vintage hunters around, which is why we want to hear the story of your Fave Find! E-mail with a picture of you with your favorite vintage find (a rare record, a perfect pair of boots, or any other treasure), and answer the following: Who, What, Where, How Much, When I Use It, and Shopping Tips!

    I agree!! DO try everything on! I constantly go through the L-XL sections of clothing even though I wear a S/M because some things that are oversized actually look really really cute on (maybe even cuter than if they were your size). So, YES, try everything on. Great find! ^_^
