This post is much fun because I am featuring the thrift founds of a swap I made with Berlin based blogger Sheri Pavlovic. As we both share the same passion for thrifting we decided few months ago we should swap some of our thrifted founds. I have been choosing couple of things for her, send it over to Berlin and she did the same for me. Few weeks later, I was in front of a nice package full of Berlin thrifted founds. Felt like it was Christmas and for sure something I want to do again!!! This week looks is mostly made of what Sheri’s had found for me.
Top: Cost 2 Euros
Necklace ( belt ): Cost €0.50
Clutch: Cost €1
Scarf & earrings: Cost nothing these were Inherited from her husband’s great aunt
*My add on
Denim: Cost 2,75 at Certex
Shoes: Ok I am cheating these are Irregular Choice shoes that I paid 30$ at Winners. Not technically thrifted but hell of a good deal:)
If you’re curious to see what I have thrift for her please head to her blog but before here are a few questions I was having for Sheri that I’d like to share with you:)
Meet Sheri Pavlovic blogger of Confessions of a refashionista
As I’d lived a rather extraordinary existence in North America, Japan, England and Greece before finally settling in Germany my blog was originally planned as a place to share my world travelling adventures. However, that soon changed when I inherited an elderly sewing machine, dusted off some brain cells, cleaned out my wardrobe & had a go at re-creating old clothes & upcycling thrifted fabrics into cool new gear!
Having avoided sewing machines since I spectacularly failed Home Ec in school, (eons ago, when they still forced hausfrau studies onto unsuspecting art geeks) my aim is to prove that even those who haven’t a clue how to thread a machine can begin (re)creating fantastic fashions & decor, all it takes is a bit of imagination & practice. After 3 short years I can proudly say that 99% of my wardrobe is thrifted & handmade and I’ve shared over 300 step-by-step tutorials for everything from groovy clothing & accessories to funky home decor on my blog!
2.What is the most expensive thing you’ve ever thrifted?
My most recent purchase is actually the most expensive: a 1950’s kitchen buffet cabinet for 100 euros. It needs some tender loving care but will be a fabulous addition to my growing collection of vintage furniture once it’s cleaned up.
3. And the least expensive thing you’ve thrifted?
The charity shop that I frequent has a “for free” box containing items that have sat on the shelf for too long…a bit of digging usually reveals a fantastic freebie!
4.Your favorite thrifted items?
All things vintage & quirky!
7. Your favorite DIY project?
With so many varied projects to choose from it is impossible to select just one! (take a peek at my tutorial index…)
