Apologies if these are bit out-of-focus... There was intermittent rain all that day, and Rachel and I had to perch ourselves in the cozy diner across the street from this Out of the Closet (I love the colors of this wall!) waiting for a break so that we could shoot. I'm terrible at dressing for the weather, and humidity makes my carefully flat-ironed bob frizz into a coco puff, but at least I'm wearing waterproof shoes.
These were taken by the Out of the Closet thrift store just a few blocks from my house. Whenever people ask me how the shopping is there, I never know what to say. On any given day the shopping is terrible, but I pop in all the time. I usually find nice things, sometimes amazing things...so... the answer is yes and no. I actually hate recommending thrift stores to people. Not because I'm afraid you'll snatch up all the finds, it's actually quite the opposite, because if you go to some thrift store I've raved about and don't find anything I feel bad, like I've somehow wasted your time.
Your trust is very important to me.
