This summer when thrifting, I found and tried on a vintage Lacroix skirt. It was too big, even to wear as a dress, so I didn't buy it. I also thought more seriously about buying one of those very 80s Moschino Cheap and Chic jackets but decided I don't really need shoulders that boxy.
Anyway, I saw one of these on 1st dibs with a 200% markup and the other at a fancy vintage store, tagged four times as much as it cost when I tried it on. San Francisco isn't a big city: these are definitely the same pieces.
The point is: my scrounging is fantastic. I am tempted to claim I should buy stuff to resell it like this, but who am I kidding? I'd end up wearing it, spilling paint on it, or giving it to someone who would fit into it better than I do.
In other scrounging news, I picked up muslin for fish-printing and a mess of remnant Dia dos Muertos themed fabric bits for next year, job assuming.
