My name is Emily and I hoard vintage. There I said it. It’s really so hard for me to put stuff in the shop!! And even when I decide to let a piece go, I can’t find the time to photograph, edit, measure, price, describe, list. I do plan on doing a massive shop update in June once school is over. I found the above vintage Gucci bag 2 weekends ago. I wouldn’t consider myself a brand whore but I will not hesitate to pick up a Gucci bag for 2$. I’m not into fake designer though. I’d much rather the quality of the real thing. I think it’s important to build up a wardrobe based on key quality pieces that will last me 50 years than pick up the latest trend at Forever 21 for $9.99. I can’t even shop in malls anymore, I see so much consumer waste. OK I don’t know how this post went from hoarding to look at my Gucci bag to talking about waste? This is how my brain works I guess.
So you know you’re in Canada when the police officers are on horseback. Didn’t you know the car hasn’t been invented here yet? This guy was pretty impressed with his own joke of stopping between my
photographer sister and I. Look at that grin!I think I saw the horse roll its eyes. I think that means we’re soulmates because eye rolling really is my ‘raison d’être”. Sometimes I roll my eyes at myself. It’s true.
