Vintage GirlPosted: June 3, 2020
If you’ve been reading the blog for a while then you know I’ve always lamented the lack of thrift/vintage shops in Vietnam. Well, during the quarantine, I was browsing around Instagram out of boredom and stumbled upon a few local vintage/second-hand shops – it’s where I got this dress, this dress, and the dress I’m wearing here. You can imagine my excitement, and I’ve been happily replenishing my closet since. In fact, I’ve made a point to only buy second-hand from now on, including shoes. I have enough basic stuff in my closet to last me a long time, so I can just replace things as I go.
The good thing about thrifting now, as opposed to when I first started the blog, is that I have a clearer idea of what I like, so I’m more selective about what I buy. Of course, the cheap price is still a temptation, but I’ve tried to be more conscientious (before I buy anything, I always try to come up with at least three-five outfits for it) and so far everything I’ve bought has worked out – as you’ll see.
