Mini Thrift Haul
Retail therapy is the best kind, and nowhere is retail therapy better than somewhere you can buy lots of things for very little money (= maximum satisfaction!). Luckily I have a very local charity shop which I can walk to, even whilst recovering from my operation, so I had a look this morning. My photos are not of fantastic quality and I have had much better hauls, but it cheered me up to get a few bargains anyway.
These were probably my bargain of the day. Dirk Bikkembergs is a luxury Belgian fashion brand, so as soon I saw the label on these I knew I had to get them. They're just comfy loose silk trousers with gold detailing, nothing that special in terms of design. What I didn't realise until later on was the original tags were still attached, I initially thought the €131 was the new price (which I was pretty pleased with) but this was their price ON SALE - the original price for these silky trousers was €525! So I should make a decent profit on them...
Costume National men's white shirt. I did think this was a women's piece as it was in the women's section, so I may sell on eBay instead of BuyMyWardrobe (which is the site I use for selling designer items). It's a pretty classic piece and again, nothing stand out, but these retail at about €500 so I should make a decent profit on this too!
