Thrift finds are treasure finds

It has never been a secret that I shop a lot in thrift shops especially in Cubao, Laguna (since I had my college at the University of the Philippines, Los Banos), and Anonas (new found love, actually).

It all started in Baguio when I was in elementary or approaching high school, but since I'm the t-shirt ONLY girl, I looked for nice shirts only, some I still have with me and used to wear a lot during my freshman days in college.

Few weeks ago, I found a dress in Anonas. It is from the first thrift shop that you'll see on your way out of Anonas LRT station. A lady was holding it when I saw it. My heart jumped the moment I saw the dress. Good thing, she did not get it. I immediately took hold of the dress which cost me so little. Then, I searched it on the internet. It's a Mara Hoffman dress which is included in her Spring 2008 collection, which originally costs 400 frigging US dollars. I couldn't hide my excitement anymore when I knew about that and told my friends immediately and gave them the link.

That's the exact dress! The dress I have is a size M (medium), though. I'll be wearing that for graduation, I think.

OH! I need my sophomore figure back!
