I couldn't care less if my shopping bags consisted of plastic rather than branded totes, my poise goes unaffected.
I'm not a snob when it comes to a $10 dress or a pair of shoes with a $150 price tag. I shop, and it’s not to fill a hole in my soul, but to fulfill the personality I hang on plastic hangers, because we all know that outfits speak louder than words.
Here is a list of thrift/vintage stores that should be a part of your character building, and remember it’s not about how many times that cardigan was worn before you that matters, it’s about dry cleaning it before it’s worn.
If you speak Spanish you’re in luck. Ignore the racks in the front and head to the dresses and skirts in the back.
This place is a gold mine! If you’re familiar with the Pomona Antique Mall then this is it locally!
I thank my lucky stars for this one! Late night shopping while bar hopping between the York and , cheers!
My Top Picks
Loca is now closed; follow them on Facebook for pop up store locations.
- Eloelia’s Boutique
The best for last! If anyone cried as much as I did to see Eloelia close her doors on York Boulevard, then grab a tissue and knock on her new door at 5128 York Boulevard! Introduce yourself and tell her I've sent you; Eloelia has to be the sweetest thing besides pan dulce and her selections of clothes are picked for the dainty girl in all of us. She’s also at theon Tuesdays.
