Thrift Shopping

Things have been a little slow today and yesterday. Not to worry, it's exam week so I'll have all the time in the world by the weekend. Today I came home a little (a lot) dejected about an accounting exam. I pulled myself together and pulled out the econ textbook to study. As a little reward for still managing to get things done, I headed off to the neighbourhood Value Village to browse through the racks thoughtlessly. I came up with a few goodies.

First, a pair of loose, high-waisted, cropped pants. I had similar ones before but they were longer and low-waisted. Is it too much you think?



Next, a couple of scarves and The Canterbury Tales. I love the design of older book covers.

I never managed to grasp the art of thrift shopping. Although there really isn't anything too impressive here, from what I've seen... Those pants look great though! :)

Belowen and Ginger: For thrift shopping you have to be VERY patient. I usually take about an hour to scour through everything (if it's a bigger store). I try anything and everything that catches my eye at least once.

I'm glad you all like those pants! I'm wearing them now with white shoes and black socks. It looks a bit silly, maybe I'll save these pants for heels?

The pants are really cute on you. And Penguin always has the best book covers.
