Blogger Outing

Today I went out for a little shopping excursion with fellow Vancouver bloggers Shay, Anthea and Danielle. We initially planned for a serious hunt at Value Village, but ended up casually browsing the many boutiques lined up on Main St. Usually I don't fall for the marked up prices at vintage stores but just this one time I had to indulge in the amazing black leather skirt I'm wearing below. I managed to haggle the price down quite a bit. It's a little skill I've picked up from my trip to Romania. I've always been too timid to ask for discounts in the past. But after dealing with Romanian merchants, a local sales associate didn't seem so intimidating.

Check out Temple of the Modern Girl (2695 Main St.) for a great 2 for 1 sale. Apparently they have too much stock and are hoping to sell things off. It was a mess today but picking through the piles of clothing was a thrill.

Unfortunately I was absentminded this morning and forgot my camera battery in the charger, so if you want better coverage of our little shopping trip, one of the other girls will surely post photos up soon.

Thanks Shay, Danielle and Anthea for a wonderful day!

That skirt is amazing!
Temple of the modern girl is one of my favorite places on main, even though I've only been in a few times.
I'll have to check out that sale!

Nothing Elegant: The skirt was a second hand find purchased at Temple of the Modern Girl, a vintage boutique in Vancouver (hence the plug, I never plug anything irrelevant to my blog).

Crystal: I'm in second year. Thanks for asking though! I realized that I forgot to update my short profile at the top of the blog. How are you liking the commerce faculty? I hope you get the best profs. We have some pretty annoying ones too.

Nathalie: Yes it is! Thank you

I think I'm going to have to get a list of all the best secondhand shops in Vancity for when I move back. I looks like you scored an awesome find. I think I'm a little jealous. I've had to curb my spending habits because of limited luggage space & haven't bought any new clothes in a couple months.
