In my recent trip back to Kuala Lumpur for Chinese New Year celebration, I managed to thrift. Oh boy,  I miss real thrifting so much! And I was lucky to score few items - yaaay!

The store is huge and prices are as low as RM5 (about USSD1.20 / HK$8.70) per piece! No time to loose but to starting digging...

A homemade vintage dress in an excellent condition for just RM5! It is a tad snug, so need to alter the dress. The print and colour is fabulous, a very pretty dress. So hard to leave it behind!

I think this a house dress or robe (?) but the print is beautiful. First of all, this is kind of unlike me to get this piece but I was thinking of wearing this as a jacket - will see.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! Hope you had a good one. Apologies for the hiatus - technical issue. My eight or nine years old laptop has decided to take a long rest. I have been told eight or nine years is quite a long 'laptop' life. Normal life cycle is five years. Anyway, I bought a new laptop as a Christmas gift for myself. Now, I am happy to be able to blog again. 

Whilst I was not blogging, I have been online shopping expanding my vintage wardrobe; shopping of different yesteryears: the 1940s and 1950s. As these two eras are relatively difficult to come by in Hong Kong, I rely on Etsy a lot. Here is a snippet of my purchases.  

2016 purchases

I cannot wait to complete the alterations which mostly are re-hemming and start wearing these beauties.

Hope you are having a great weekend and started the new year with a great start. Till my next post, stay chic!
