Thrifting is all about the hunt and discovery. There’s that feeling you get when you find something really special. I find that some of the best places for good thrift finds are dark stores crammed to the rafters. Which you don’t really find in New York.
Last year, I found (for me) probably the best item in a thrift store. Out of the corner of my eye, I spy this jeweled tone dress partially sticking out and immediately move towards it. My excitement increases as I move closer until I’m standing right in front of it. At first glance, the material is in pristine condition, a colorful combination of fuschia, golds, reds and checks.
Imagine my surprise when I pull it off the rack and realize that it is even more special than I first thought. I had found an actual Lanvin dress, which the thrift gods had led me to.
The skirt is very structured, billowing out from the hips and tapering at the knee with a sash to wrap around the waist.
The best part is the price = $8
Now, I need to find somewhere special to wear it.
