Currently listening to students murmuring as I’m in the lab.
As highly requested, Tales From The Thrift is backkkkkkkkkkk. I took a break from the post because I stopped having my things in one place, I stopped finding time to take pictures of the things I got all month and I felt like everyone now preaches the gospel of thrift shopping, meaning people now know that we can find awesome pieces thrifting in Nigeria which was the sole purpose of this post but since you really liked it I’ve decided to keep at it.
THE SPLURGE :
I’m still pretty much about buying shoes for myself, you really can’t blame because and just being a girl and you know what they say about girls and shoes. I saw this particular shoe on my Instagram feed and it was love at first sight and I was so happy I could gift it to myself for being a good girl all 2016.
THE THRIFT :
I didn’t plan on shopping when I got these purses but they are my favorite purchase this month. Embroidery and text written on things are totally IT right now and I’m glad I was able to get both for 400 naira each.
If you follow me on Instagram you’d know I’ve been wearing this slip dress almost every other day, I absolutely adore it and it’s by a brand I’ve been eyeing for a long time ‘andotherstories‘. I got this lovely dress for 500 naira.
I was able to snag off the market some wardrobe essentials like the exaggerated bell sleeves top, a Topshop frayed hem mini skirt, a mini flared sleeve top amongst many others from a vendor that retails for 100 naira per piece, y’all best believe I’ve hardly worn a blouse twice this month *covers face*.
I’m still all about the denim, never ever forget and ofcourse I had to have the most popular style of Levi Strauss co jeans ‘the 501‘ to my collection. I never thought I’d find one that’s even my exact size and could pass for brand new in this part of the world, the best part was it was on retail for just 500 naira I didn’t even think twice about getting it.
Now to roundup the amazing thrifting month I’ve had this January, only yesterday I found a replica of the only rayban glasses I’ve ever craved. The only retails for about $200 and I got this for only 700 naira from a road side vendor. I really don’t care if it’s fake (by the way Rayban isn’t written on it so you can’t say it’s a fake call it dupe maybe?) but all I know is I look just as fly when I wear this and that’s all that matters because as you all know (or not), pricey doesn’t always mean stylish.
Till next time… xoxo.
