It’s Friday Fashion Day! Check out today’s Edmonton Journal to read all about the Value Village Edmonton Shop Hop! Did YOU fill a passport?! I know I can’t wait to use my 30% off… because I could really use some more skirts and dresses. (insert big smiley)
I calculated that 90% of my dresses are thrifted and I would estimate that or more applies to the rest of my wardrobe. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I make some exceptions to my commitment to secondhand shopping. I support my sister, She Does Create – is it my fault I have a sister who happens to be a jewelry designer? What’s a girl to do?!! I also do what I can to support local talent and this week that meant buying a couple more Flatter:Me belts!
These belts were designed by Edmontonian Claire Theaker-Brown and are manufactured ethically in China, but besides all that, they look great and are FUNCTIONAL! They are perfect for holding up pants that gape in the back or stretch out, and they look fab as part of your outfit! They are $34 including shipping and have been a lifesaver for me with my thrifted pants; even if the pants don’t fit perfectly, I know my Flatter:Me belt will make those $4 pants work! I had a hard time deciding which belt to wear first but ended up going grey all the way!
