The Girl With Glasses

I am very proud of myself today plainly because I woke up early. I had been wrestling with the idea of going to Andrea's vintage sales this morning. Since I did kind of spent a fortune on a fur coat and a wool cardi just a couple of days ago, I should probably freeze my credit card AND my eftpos card like Isla Fisher in Confessions of A Shopaholic. Then I did kind of locked myself up and ended up op-shopping (and NOT op-shopping) and bought a pair of woollen gloves, a vintage waist belt and two pairs of pattern tights. Arghh!!!! What have I done?!

Then again, who can resist the chance of shopping the wardrobe of a vintage blogger who has the most impressive pieces in Christchurch WHEN IT'S ON SALE! Seriously, nothing was over $50!

So what happened was that I brought $25 dollars with me. Yes, $25 dollars. I started to feel like hitting my head against the wall 5 minutes after stepping into Andrea's garden. The dresses were my size and wool coats were $30. I contemplated and weighed all the pros and cons and grabbed two items that fits into my teeny weeny budget range.

There were so many things that happened simultaniously in that 2 hours sale. And among them, I met amazing ladies who love vintage clothing (and a fellow classmate)! Brodie was so very kind and offered me a ride back to uni after that.

Anyhow, I am satisfied with the things I got and here is one that I just can't wait to show you guys!
