The struggle of a vintage reseller is real folks.
There are so many unbelievable pieces out there and I want them all!
So I can offer them up to you of course!
Not to fill my already bursting closet.
Okay…there may be a couple of pieces I have to wear at least once before I pass them along for someone else to enjoy.
It’s a weakness people.
I may need help.
And my pug isn’t up to the kind of intervention I need.
This is her level of help…
I shall sleep while you work.
This week was a big shopping week because of a massive sale at Talize …my favourite thrift store.
50% off meant getting up at 5:45 to be at the store just after 7 am.
My plan was to hit three stores but I ran out of steam before I drove the extra hour out to the third store. Sometimes we have to recognize our personal limitations. After over six hours of shopping in an insanely busy and crazed environment I couldn’t take it any longer. Seriously…there was and hour long wait for the change room.
I ain’t got no time for that.
I was doing the naked woman in the aisle trick.
Okay I wasn’t totally naked since I wore leggings and a camisole but I felt naked so I figure that counts, especially when the pieces you try on turn out to be too small and you can’t get out of them gracefully.
You know the ugly cry?
Yeah well I had a few ugly undressing moments at the front of the crowded store which was the only spot I could find with a mirror.
The article of clothing got stuck on my boobs/shoulders. Part of it was over my head, the other half was stuck. There I was bent over at the waist wiggling around like a worm not able to see, breath or think trying desperately not to hyperventilate and pass out. I felt a silent scream forming in the pit of my stomach as I became more and more panicked about dying like this, suffocated by a cute dress at a thrift store. Will that be what they write on my tombstone?
The humiliation of it all.
I may have dislocated a shoulder pulling myself out of that
straight jacket dress.
All the things I do for you guys!
My stash of goodies has grown and now included a Prada dress.
Oh yeah baby!
And no, that was not the dress-trap that I almost died in.
I’ve been busy as a bee cleaning, ironing and mending trying to get the new stock ready for sale. Look for some super hot new items in the next few days at Vintage by Suzanne.
Make sure you favourite my store to get all the latest updates.
