post #52966 of 114370

Went out to exchange something at a non-thrift shop down the street today. Looked around for the front counter, and when I found it, I also found Jessica Alba. I took that as a sign that lady luck was with me, must be a good time to hit the shops. Well that didn't pan out as planned, but I did find...

NOT AVAILS... Must make rent.

And then when you least expect it

Lady luck (Click to show)

Old, but still might have some life, will take some shots tomorrow when it gets the light it deserves and has a chance to de-wrinkle itself. Just wait to see it before messaging me.

Guy 2: look here's another one!
Guy 1: Some rich guy musta given these away, go grab a cart will ya?

After which they proceeded to fill a cart with about 10 old London Fog trench coats... Gotta love new flippers

I kinda do, but it certainly dominates an outfit, and I probably wouldn't buy it for myself.

 

My only gripe is that the sweater is sheer (you can see the placket of the shirt underneath).  With this, I would probably hedge towards a T-shirt underneath and only wear the sweater in warmer weather as suggested by a sweater with such an airy weave.

For the record, I don't have a problem with you doing this, just like I didn't mind dm7 making a similar offer a while ago (even took him up on it - still love the results). After all this is an Internet forum, and if you don't like a post, it's pretty easy to skip over it. 

 

I just remember how much shit he took for doing it, and how many people agreed that sort of thing wasn't appropriate. Other people's offers have gotten similar reactions. Didn't realize these things were going to be handled on a case by case basis.

In my experience, Savers/VV 50% off sales are best avoided, unless you want to relive a few scenes from Apocalypse Now!

 

However, the next couple of days after one of those sales are absolutely key. It's like a brush fire clearing out the crap.

Spot on, and this was my exact initial reaction.  No general objection to the practice (I disfavor it, but hey, this thread has morphed in 5 billion ways since its creation...GOTTA RIDE IT OUT, BRO), but I remember the general reaction to DM7 doing the exact same thing was universally hostile (and I, admittedly, gave my own potshots, though entirely for the purposes of my own personal lulz, as I always do).

 

It's just the hypocrisy that annoys me.  If we're going to get all pitchfork-y, I'd prefer we do so every time, not selectively.

I plan on ditching work to hit up a Savers near my house!

You what?! Pics or it didn't happen. BTW, that's a lovely RRL. I ran into a similar one at a thrift store down south a bit and they wanted $15 for it...Pass.

Fair enough. I was exchanging a pillow cover at West Elm, which is across from where these were shot (I was actually curious about the shop mentioned in this "article", and after visiting their site,  I think I'm going to have to pay them a visit). Even better in person. I was completely oblivious to the presence of any paps waiting across the street, but then again there was construction going on in front of the store. I looked her up to make sure I wasn't crazy, and oddly enough found the shots from today.

Damn, it looks like she lost most of her curves. She looked really skinny in those photos.

Oh great, now you're telling me I need to get a plain blue shirt? smile.gif

 

I actually had the same thought shortly after I posted. I'll try it with a blue shirt and a few jacket combinations; maybe it'll grow on me.
