In the Spirit of Valentine's Day: Pre-Loved Clothing


Ok to be honest, Valentine's Day or not, I've been dying to wear this adorable pink dress! So here's the funny story... I went thrifting at my favourite Value Village (if you're in Vancouver, it's the one on Hastings St. near Commercial Drive). And I stumbled upon this gorgeous hot pink dress - definitely hard to miss amongst the rows of other dresses. I checked the tag: Shabby Apple for $17.99! They're a brand I've always wanted to try, having seen they're sweet dress designs online plenty of times. Needless to say, I was pretty excited about this find. I also remembered Leeanne (of LegalLee Blonde) had a similar dress a while back.

Well, lo and behold...I went to shoot these Valentine's Day outfit photos with photographer Austin Mollins and Leeanne (we were doing another outfit shoot together)...and when I tell Leeanne I thrifted this great dress, she tells me that must be the dress she had, because she donated it recently! The perfect example of a clothing item getting a second life - to be loved once again...how fitting for Valentine's Day! Gotta love pre-loved fashion.

Have you ever donated a clothing item, in the hopes that it'll go to someone else who will love it just as you did?
