check us out: Goodwill Tour March 2008

Eve and I had to run some errands to the shitty (we’re sorry Vacavillians, but it’s at least sorta true) town of Vacaville, so we decided to make a silk purse out of the sow’s-ear-of-America and go thrifting. And boy howdy, are we glad we did.

gaggingly adorable red beret with blue wooden beads – $2
airy blue pin-striped blouse with ruffles – $7
twee and practical red woven leather wedge pumps – $3
I told her she looks kinda Bonnie and Clyde crossed with Funny Face.

Amber (…hm, I think next time I’m going to try this outfit with a mini skirt or a floaty dress instead of hurrying into ratty old jeans, this is looking a bit too “I wanna date The Strokes” for my taste):
crocheted flutter-sleeve V-neck – $2.50
extra long beaded chain necklace – $2
shrunken double-breasted blazer (from the boys’ section) and my favorite thing du jour – $3
Eve’s explosive pointy leisure-class Cole Haans with metallic cut-outs – $3

cole haan loafers

…We also got some cozy warm ankle boots, 3 silk blouses, some high-waisted black jeans, a pair of loafers, some cloud-like chocolate leather easy spirit jazz shoes, some 80s deco earrings, another pair of red pleated leather kitten pumps, a so-soft rugby striped thermal, 3 statement belts, 2 silk graphic scarves, a warm and delicious men’s coat for the hubby of Eve, a kneeling chair, some brand new fireplace pokers, a slouchy 80s sweatshirt and 2 lovely sweaters.

PS Chicago hipsters: Don’t forget to RSVP to our Major Hip Replacement Clothing Swap in Wicker Park on March 30th! We really wanna see your clothes… er I totally meant to say you there!
