I had Saturday off for the first time in what feels like forever, so my partner in paycheck-blowing, Liz, and I went to a few places to shop. Namely Fashionably Dead, Dressed in Time, Freak Lunchbox, Splurge, Envy and Value Village. Good times were had by all.
We started out at Fashionably Dead, which caters to the sorta goth and punk crowd mainly. BUT I always find somehing creepy cute there. We were in luck because they had crazy awesome sales that day! I got a cute shirt with a circus freak print (13$), some Manic Panic eyeshadow (5$) (will have review for later since I've never used their make-up before) and...this hilarious vintage-look kitty necklace:
After that we went to Dressed in Time, which specializes in vintage clothing. I didn't buy anything there, but they did have some great tapestry bags that I may have to go back for. As always, their mannequin out front looks insane. Note the lack of hands:
Onwards to Splurge, also having amazng sales! It was 50% off of everything, so, I did in fact, splurge (lame joke). There I purchased a cute deer wallet (12$), Rose ring (99 cents), and a neat hanger for my necklaces (7$, will also be doing a review for this).
Envy is right beide Splurge, so it was next. There wasn't too much in there because it's very boutiquey, and when they have sales it clears out FAST. But I did get a great eyelet lace shirt for 19$, pictures soon with a coordinate.
We made a stop at the bank. This dog thought Liz was a raccoon:
Woo, Freak Lunchbox was next! If you're ever in Halifax, you must visit this candy store. Huge selection of classic and weird candy, novelties, toys, and all sorts of collectables too. And the staff is super friendly.
Huuuuge E.T. in the window for Christmas, lol.
They always have weird things outside. I ended up getting a bag of mixed candy and some adorable cupcake mints. Like everything in my life, I prefer my mints cute. And frosting flavoured.
Last stop was Value Village, huge-o-rama of new and used stuff and things. Not much in there that evening, but Liz got a hamster wheel for her hedgie hogs for 2$, And I got a bunch of cute little spoons, with which I will later be attempting to make spoon necklaces (like the Dolly ones carried in Grimoire). Tutoral for that to follow, but here are the spoons:
I was lucky to find some that are heavily decorated and detailed. I love the ones that are scalloped. And the ones that have the flower details right in the "scoop" part are neat too.
These shoes were there too, but they were not my size:
Hoping to have some tutorials and/or coordinates to post next time!
