2ndhand Stories:: Edition 3: summer, wya

It’s embarrassing that it took this long to release these photos from Summer ’17, being that it’s almost December…Oh well, better late than never. Welcome to the life of a high school junior. But in case you live on the West coast or some other sunny spot in the world and need some warm weather outfit inspo, here you have it. You can’t see it in pictures but the whimsical red floral motif here is actually textured, giving it the rich, delicate detail that Milly pieces are known for. Bought this at a consignment store for a steal. A bit wall paper-y in pattern, I’m not going to lie, but elegant and comfy nevertheless with its fitted bust and empire waist.  ‘Vintage’ Milly, circa 2000-something here folks, sported by yours truly looking ever so carefree and stress-free, completely oblivious to the frenzied future that awaited her… Ay.

~TIP 3: Unless you are fine with having rips/stains on your clothing, make sure to do a 360 of an item before purchasing, or if online, read the descriptions/survey the photos carefully. It is VERY DIFFICULT to remove imperfections, especially if they’ve been there for a while…The only exception is if the price overcompensates for the flaws. The latter situation has actually afforded me many stellar deals, both online and in store. It’s all about knowing the market and assessing whether or not something is worth taking home.
