Did I give up?
No! I went on vacation to Quebec and Victoria (aka really great places to shop *tear*).
Quebec wasn't too much of a challenge. My in-laws live on a beautiful farm 2 hours from Montreal and although every inch of me wanted to go hunting in thrift stores, last year I scored a pair of seven jeans and TR jeans there, my 2 little girls were not so inclined. Instead we counted the baby chicken delivery, drew so many pics I am inspired to start drawing again and went to Bromont's insane water park.
However, when my bestie showed up at the farm (yep, we coordinate our vacations) we were able to sneak away to the "friperie" (french for used clothing store) where I picked up a really cool hat.
|That's my bestie!|
I love the one I found for $4, it is the perfect color to wear with jeans and the red feather on the side elevates it I think, I get so many compliments when I wear it. It's the perfect topper to a simple jeans and T outfit.
So Aug 1-10th was pretty uneventful...it was in Victoria that I really felt the pain...stay tuned.
Retail $19.99 (conservative)
