Hello!

I’ve been thrifting like there’s no tomorrow. I’m on a limited time frame before I embark on a new journey in September. Not a safari, but I’m taking a plunge that’s beyond my comfort zone. That makes it even more exciting, although some won’t get it at all. I’ll still try to make time for thrifting and resale but it’s going to be a challenge as they’re not really related at all.

Onto my recent finds:

This gorgeous Nanette Lepore dress is in immaculate condition. The only issue is that the size tag has been cut out. It’s a size 6 and it’s big on me, otherwise, I’d keep it. My shorter torso doesn’t completely agree with the fit as well.


However, I am keeping this amazing score. It’s a vintage Contempo Casuals from the 1990’s and it has an asymmetrical hemline that’s party in the front and business in the back. Haha! Fits perfectly, too.


The other funny thing is that I’ve been listening to Autechre, Aphex Twin, PJ Harvey, and Radiohead all week like it’s still the 90’s!

Do check out PJ’s new album, though.

Did I show off this knit kids skull skirt before? It’s cool but there aren’t any labels so I have no idea where it’s from. It’s too big for my kidlets for now and I think I’ll save it.


Check out these Seychelles boots from Modcloth.


Check out these Clarks Indigo boots. They fit perfectly and are comfortable so I might keep them? I have too many boots said no one ever. They’ve got a 70’s vibe that I like.

I got these Born shoes not that long ago. They’re great Mary Janes that are comfortable and very versatile. Unsure if I’m keeping or selling. Size 8.5.

I’ve been spending a fair amount of time lately on the app Kidizen with my store. In case you don’t know, it’s called Coco and Lulu and here’s the link so that you can see the 75 (!) listings that I have available.

Some of the brands are boutique and fancy like Anthem of the Ants, and are the mall norms like Children’s Place and H&M. In most instances, I spend way more on my kids’ clothes than on my own! Any amount that one can recoup back from these purchases is just amazing and Kidizen is still the best app out there for this purpose, in my opinion.

Happy thrifting and shopping until we meet again!
