Hello there :)
I'm fully aware of the fact I kindly promised to showcase my five most recent thrift shop treasures with you but actually I'm going to bend my promise a bit ;) In other words I'm presenting somewhat older but still ridiculously inexpensive thrifted finds from Zara (Basic) and The Shirt Factory (Design Linnéa Braun). The latter, by the way, is one of Sweden's leading makers of designer shirts for men and women. And their talented designer Linnéa Braun won the prestigious "Golden Button" Swedish fashion design award in 1985.
Can you believe each piece cost merely 1 euro and actually I got myself an entire outfit for 2 little euros? Pretty awesome, right? What can I say, must love thrifting! Besides, I honestly think paying full price for clothes is pointless when we have sales and of course our beloved thrift stores. Well and naturally there always are some exceptions concerning the things we can't get from thrift shops (undies, socks etc.) or during sales.. or just cases when we want/need to reward ourselves with something more expensive and special. And I guess we all have those days. But what is YOUR opinion on this matter? Do you even think about stuff like that?

Anyway, I wore this casual bluish outfit (don't mind the snowstorm) on March 30 to Tartu where we were scouting around for a wicker laundry chest or basket but the perfect one was way too expensive for a quite plain chest. Therefore we are waiting for sales or just must find something more reasonable.
Update: we already did on Saturday in Rakvere, yay!
In other news I rediscovered those particularly piercing (and high - 15 cm!) tricolour wedges from Simple & Chic. They used to cost 59.99 euros when I last saw them but now I paid half of the original price and was oh so happy because these are truly comfortable and surprisingly lightweight (and once again - very high! :D). This is why I'm currently keeping a close watch on the weather forecast to detect dry and warm days (that are probably practically here).
I also bought the Golden Highlights shampoo (1.20 euros) and a conditioner of the same name (1.20 euros) from Timotei, a nostalgic brand I remember already from my childhood. I quite like the shampoo since it lathers well (my shampoo simply has to lather properly), looks goldenly iridescent, smells nice and cleans my long occasionally highlighted hair.
But I'm afraid the conditioner is a let-down, at least after the first use I must say so because it just didn't make my hair smooth enough. On the other hand it made my hair glossier and even a colleague said it's pretty fabulous. And you shouldn't expect a 1.20 euros worth product to be miraculous anyway. Besides, I can always give it to my fiancé who is very skilful when it comes to using the products or actually mainly the "ends" of the few shampoos and conditioners (and even a mask!) I have abandoned. As they say - don't waste anything!
To tie up loose ends I'm additionally going to share a few wintry photographs taken mainly on March 29 but partially also in April. Let's say it's my farewell to winter because on Saturday I wore my leather jacket and biker boots for the first time this year and finally everything (I mean the annoying white stuff) is melting and fading.
I hope you enjoy my photos and of course let me know what you think.
See you next time, dear readers! :)
