Afternoon of Shopping with Sherry – Volume IV
My third mini instalment of shopping with me as a thrifting expedition…
I started off in a shop, and it just made me hungry to look at all of these chocolates in their fancy colours:
I start off in dresses because it’s my favourite:
I know this brand actually, I think I owned an item from them once, or wanted to buy one, but found it very expensive..
I always thought Catherine Malandrino was an expensive brand but it is not, really….. I thought it was a designer brand but it turns out she does mass-market stuff, along the lines of Leith, Halogen, or other brands like that.. A little above Banana-Republic level.
I REALLY liked this print but the spaghetti straps are not my friend. This would be a waste of money for me because I wouldn’t wear it.
Someone had a traditional dress donated as well. I am not sure where this is from, culturally. India?
Very preppy and conservative.
This was an expensive dress, it was very good quality, but I am not a fan of animal prints otherwise I would have been over it.
Then I saw this, and was horrified. Looked like a tiger or a bear got caught into posing for a knitted sweater.
$20!?!?!? I was shocked.
I would have picked this up if the colours were better…
Tempting. You know how I’m a fiend for stripes…
These dresses are cheap quality but the price is so $$$$$
I WAS SO EXCITED WHEN I SAW THIS!!! 100% magenta silk:
Really, I don’t get this print. It doesn’t look pretty or appetizing or… anything. It looks terrible.
I love vintage dresses because the quality is just so GOOD. Great wool, great, cut, great fit… and usually it lasts for a long time.
And for dinner, it started as this:
I really enjoy these posts. Whenever you find something you like, but it’s too big, long or whatever, do you ever consider buying it and taking it to a tailor? I’ve done that a few times but only if the quality is really good and it’s a piece I really like.
I recognize those gorgeous chocolates from Germany. They’re filled with marzipan.
