The Same Old Song

IMG_9548
With the first of the year, I often do a light winter cleaning around my apartment. Last year, Matthew and I made a promise to rid our apartment of distractions. We sold our television (which is a huge distraction for me) and instead invested in additional records to our growing vinyl collection. Whenever I visit thrift stores, I always search the record selection for possibly titles to add to our library. New Order's Substance was the best record I've thrifted since it is rather expensive to buy online, and I also found a few original Beatles records at a garage sale. The hunt continues this year!

Speaking of lucky thrift store finds, I recently discovered this 1960s yellow coat for only $6.00. I haven't had as much time to thrift due to my job. But whenever I have a moment, I find myself traveling to the nearest charity shop. 

Jacket: 1960s Vintage
Shirt: 1980s Vintage

Bag: 1950s Vintage
Listening to: The Same Old Song/ The Four Tops

Six dollars?! What a gorgeous find for such an amazing price. Any time I hear about other people scoring these wonderful deals, it inspires me to shop (which probably isn't the best idea for me right now).

Handmade by Emily :

I'm with you on the TV front. It is such a huge distraction. I only use ours to watch movies now and magically have all this new free time that I must've spent watching TV before. That is a very cute coat, especially with the polka dots, and such good condition for a vintage thrifted piece.

Happy New Year!
