This weekend Chase let me go shopping. But I don't like shopping so we went thrifting...except I didn't know where the hot spots are around here. We looked up a few places on Yelp and came across two gold mines: (1) Venus thrift store at the corner of Western and 3rd and (2) Goodwill at 1200 Vine St.
The Venus thrift store is owned by Koreans and are full of reject Korean clothes. There were TONS of pencil skirts and I was able to snag one of the few longer skirts in my size. There were also a bunch of men's suits so if your guy is regular-sized, check it out. (Mine is a rare breed of the tall skinny variety.)
The Goodwill at Vine St. was one of the cleanest thrift stores I've ever been to. I snagged these teal wedges and some black rain boots for $20. Just in time - I think I just missed L.A.'s rainy season for the rest of the century.
I've been loving Pinterest lately. This outfit is inspired by three of my pins! Bet you can't guess which ones. (You probably can.)
I forgot to ask Chase for close-ups of my crown-braid hair again. Sorry, two people. I think I need to go for a more messy look next time to not make it look like I have a bowl-cut. I'm not that Asian.
I'm wearing a Love Stitch white blouse ($4), DownEast shirt underneath (gift from my mother-in-law - buy it!), reworked JCPenney pink necklace (free with gift cards), vintage red skirt ($6), and thrifted teal wedges ($10).
