Losing my thrift store virginity

As unbelievable as it sounds I have never bought anything from a classic thrift store before yesterday. I have two pairs of too small and/or unrepairable shoes and some charmingly faulty rings from proper vintage shops, but I did not make a good deal buying them and they aren’t really outstanding either. So yesterday, when I first stepped into one of the bigger ones -in Budapest-, armed with my whole salary and spotting an apple green Ralph Lauren shirt in the first 2 minutes I knew instantly that I was in for a ride…The Secret Costumier - Vintage Ralph Lauren shirtLong story short, I came home with the not-even-my-style-but-looks-good-on-anyone Ralph Lauren shirt (1900Ft/£5.50), a pale pink scarf (1200 Ft/£3.50), a surprisingly well cut jacket from Primark (2500 Ft/ £7.20) and a floral/lace top from Topshop (1200 Ft/£3.50). Sure there is a tiny yellowish spot on the shirt, the Topshop top is way too wide and way too short to wear it without something underneath, but I might turn the top into a lingerie set of some sort, and well… I am actually genuinely happy with the pink scarf. The jacket turned out to be matching the trousers I bought when I found out that I got a job in an office with a dress code, so now I have a suit! 🙂The Secret Costumier - Primark jacket

P.S. :Sorry about the wrinkled clothes, they are straight out of the washing machine…and the yellow spot on the green shirt disappeared. Yeey!
