It feels a little low-contrast for my taste, but I'm no expert.
cheers! Thanks for your input smile.gif

Slight (I hope) derail. Took a tumble in a parking lot Friday and busted up the ankle pretty badly, to the point where I can't go thrifting. It's driving me nuts. I've been cold turkey for five days now. Has anyone else gone through withdrawal? All the CL and shopgoodwill.com in the world isn't helping.

Absolutely!

 

You need a care package? If everyone here sends you two things it will almost be like you were actually in the thrift.

Unfortunately it is too warm in Berkeley for me to wear a scarf irl, BUT I did just get a pair of black suede slippers in the mail, and of course had to put on my whole tux rig to try them on. I then threw a scarf on top and called it a day.

 

anyway here is another one of my shitty mirror selfie nonsense entries that narrowly meets the challenge criteria

Definitely. Whenever we go on vacation I somehow manage to cram a few thrift days in but 2-3 times in two weeks is not enough! I usually will start to think about what's out there that I'm missing because I'm at an amusement park or at the beach or something. Had the itch like crazy while in Japan. Sucked because 1) Thrift shops exist but didn't where I was staying in Shinjuku. Lots of consignment shops but they were very pricey. 2) Nothing fit me. Everything was super small.

Flip talk

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Someone on Reddit made this. It's in beta but it's still really cool nonetheless.
 

Looks like it may be useful.
