Finders Keepers...

...Losers Weepers.



We all know the saying and it certainly applys as end of season sale items hit the racks. Around the world women are clawing each others eyes out wanting the best deal. But  i am not among them. As most people search through the racks of chain stores or shopping malls, I hit the second hand stores. 

Today im going to share one of my favorite second hand stores where i went today!


 "Finders Keepers" is a place all should visit. It has a range of clothing suitable for every style, and most importantly, the best deals all season long! 
The clothes they stock range from last season designer looks, to gorgeous vintage finds. The you can find $150 Italian shoes, or $10 Decjuba T-shirts. 

So i decided to take a short study break and visit my favorite store!


 I also wanted to talk about my outfit i wore today.


 Fashion blogging is a competitive world and most bloggers see other bloggers as their competitors. I however see them as friends who i look to for inspiration. So today i thought i would give a little shout out to Daly, a fellow fashion blogger whos recent post inspired me to break out my old maxi dress despite the weather!

Anyway onto my treats i bought today..




 ( i love the brown paper shopping bags)

Heres just a little peek at the clothes i bought, you will see them in later posts when i wear them...


 First of all was a pale pink, checkered, made in Italy, 60's style, short sleeved jacket. It was only $6!


 Second was a gorgeous floral, cropped, tie up top. It kind of reminded me of a 50's look from the beach. Cant wait to wear it to the pools or beach this coming summer, and it was only $6



So how is your shopping going? thanks to everyone whos commenting and following me! means so much to me!

xoxo

  6. Hi!! I also love second hand stores. I love spending endless afternoons there, looking very hard in case I find something interesting there, or vintage! Unfortunately, there aren't so many shops like this in Spain D:

    Great picks, I loved the jacket, and the pattern on the floral top is lovely!! :)
    See u!
