Week 3 of Fashion Revolution month will give you a peek into my closet and showcase some of my favourite second-hand items, along with the stories that come with each piece. For the sixth day of this series, I will be featuring my dress collection.
| Everly – Eastside Flea Market – $1 | I’m not sure if it was supposed to be in there, but I found this in a vendor’s loonie bin at the Eastside Flea Market at the False Creek food truck festival. I have worn this dress so many times to dance shows and it’s just great to be able to look classy in something I only paid one dollar for.
| St. Vincent de Paul Society Thrift Store – $3 | The day I bought this, I was in such a rush that I didn’t have time to try anything on. I almost never buy anything without trying it on first, but I decided to get this slip dress because the color was so beautiful. I’m planning to wear this piece for the first time when I go to a show in a couple weeks and I can’t wait to style it.
| American Apparel – bought from a friend – $3 | Guys, it’s a pastel colourblock t-shirt dress, need I say more? Thank you to my wonderful friend Desi who sold this to me! This piece made such a perfect Easter outfit last weekend.
| Oak & Fort – Salvation Army – $8 | I have always been in love with Oak & Fort’s minimalist aesthetic, so finding this gorgeous sweater dress at the thrift store was such a satisfying moment.
| Vintage – hand-me-down from my mom | 2nd photo by Shafira Vidyamaharani | When I was planning my outfit for prom last year, I knew that I needed to do it ethically, but I also didn’t want to spend a lot of money. It all came together with the help of my mom, who lent me this beautiful, classic dress. It was originally thrifted by her sister many years ago then it was passed along to my mom. This dress will always hold so many memories of my grade 12 year.
