In Shopping, Style

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 got out of $60,000 of debt in 18 months using TheBudgetingTool.com. Since then, I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K (savings rate = 85%). I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    I recognize those gorgeous chocolates from Germany. They’re filled with marzipan.

      I should have bought them and eaten them like an animal.

    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.

      Yes. I do. If I think I will really enjoy it and I can fix it the way I think it should work on my body…
