What I'm Wearing 21.04.07


Wearing a vintage dress from C'est La Vie, thrifted leather jacket, Aldo heels, thrifted sunglasses, and vintage briefcase from a prop store on Front Street (New Westminster).

I swear I didn't wear these shoes yesterday! Actually, I'm alternating between heels and flats these days. I guess I just happen to make better posting outfits with heels on.

This morning I... almost... received my much anticipated package from Solestruck.com. Why almost? Well because the government decided to make me pay 15 bucks worth of taxes on the spot and I didn't have any cash. Is this normal when receiving online goods? I wouldn't know, since this is the biggest package I've ordered so far. Oh well, I guess the shoes will be my little reward for surviving this afternoon's statistics exam. Can't wait to pick them up tomorrow.

Edit: Unfortunately my little vintage briefcase is not cooperating with me because the locks are all wonky. I almost got my notes stuck in there! I'm glad I averted that disaster before leaving the house. It's too bad I have to switch bags.

Wow, very nice. I love your leather jacket a lot. And nice outfit you put together there. Love the shoes too. You look like you're workin' for DVF or something :)

Umm.. about the taxes yeah some countries do that if the goods are from abroad and worth above some limits.

Wow! I love this. Who'd have thought a brown jacket could look so nice?

oh, yeah customs fees are a bitch. It has to do with the sender though, if they value the item really high then you end up paying more customs fees. You will pretty much always have to pay customs fees for anything valued at over $100

I suppose is normal to pay fees on certain ships... here in Italy for example, if you order somehting from the US, the ships very often must charge a fee!

Ahhh totally awesome leather jacket!! Man I'm really amazed at the stuff you've been able to thrift all along!! I've been looking for a nice leather jacket for the longest time but everything is either too expensive or doesn't fit well... Value Village sounds like such a godsend!

(lol too bad about the briefcase. it does look really awesome though!)
