fretex

today was the first time i ever got lucky at the fretex-shop (second hand shop by the salvation army) around the corner. usually the only nice stuff they have is far too expensive for me (600nok = 65eur for a vintage dress? nope, sorry.), and the rest is really crappy.

anyway, today i found a this nice jacket for autumn, it's a wool blend and it looks a bit like a riding jacket, and i do like that it's checkered as well. i actually got it a bit cheaper as there is a seam which needs to be fixed, but that i can do in almost no time.

























of course, as always, i'll have to shorten the sleeves as well.

then, i also found a jacket by kenzo, but it was a horrible colour and far too big for me, plus there was a hole somewhere which reminded me of, well, moths. so, that one didn't follow, even though i was really tempted (it would have been 49nok, around 5 eur). i did take a cute cute cute little ralph lauren dress for 10nok - just in case i ever have a daughter who needs to have a nice dress when she is one year old...

and, i found a vintage dress with gorgeous buttons. it looks very 40s, even though it looks like it might also be from the 80s. i'm not sure at all. it is black velvet - polyester, sadly enough, and it will need a little taking in at the back, but i think i can do that as well. and i think i could stand some polyester for a night at the theatre. we'll see tomorrow. i'll post pictures then as well.

now, i'll put a shopping embargo on myself for the next.. month?? ok, week. i'll never do longer than that.
