Since I'm still on the hunt for the right faux fur vest, I thought I'd try my luck at some thrift stores. On Saturday after some serious winter cleaning, I went to my favorite one in Adelphi. No luck there. Sunday, I decided to check out a thrift store I haven't been to yet. But first - brunch! Cee and I finally hit up the new Busboys & Poets location in Hyattsville. The brunch is pretty good. Mimosas and Bloody Marys (I have yet to taste it and when Cee told me tomato juice was one of the ingredients, I am never tasting it) were $5 a glass. Not bad but I've had it for cheaper (Tabaq, for one). Afterwards, it was time to thrift. Cee took me to one of her favorite stores, Value Thrift. I noticed how neat and organized it was. Well, I should say color organized - the clothes are grouped together by color which is very helpful when, let's say, one is looking for a white blazer and you can find it immediately since it'll be in the 'white' batch. It is not organized by size. That can be a bit annoying to sift through each item just to locate the size you want. Having patience is key. Unfortunately, I did not find what I was looking for. It may seem like this faux fur vest has to be bought at a retail store. Something I was really trying to avoid because it may be on the pricey side. We shall see.
This is what I wore for a day of brunch + thrift.
