Cute Korea Thrifting Haul!
The other day I was in Edae (as usual!) and stopped by one of my favorite Ajuma’s shop~ she is has this TINY little hole in the wall (more like a gap between two buildings) that she sells socks and one rack of thrift store clothing. Most of it is terrible, but wow~ once in a while I find something amazing in that pile!! This time she had not one, but two pastel 1980’s dresses that looked so cute I could not say no!
When thrifting for vintage clothing in Edae you have to be quick, girls snatch them up fast!
Pastel palm trees! haha I love it!!!! The sleeves kinda poof a bit odd, so I may take them to my seamstress to fix
Seashell pattern dress with pockets! It is a little long so I may hem and stick the sleeves up a tad + I think I want to replace the buttons with solid white shaped hearts or shells.
I was super excited to wear the Mermaid pieces I collaborated with Locketship on
The candy colored mermaid girls matched the fabric perfectly!! ^^
Each of these dresses set me back 15,000 won~ I kinda like her now so I feel bad haggling for a little less even though I should have ~_~ They are like new with no funky smells or wear in the fabric though, so fair enough I suppose ♥
I am an 80’s child raised in Florida so these fabrics are VERY nostalgic for me. I bet my Mom had a shell dress like that!
All bows belong to Milk apparently ♥ Thankfully he is not shedding yet….YET.
Do you want to know some places to score vintage clothing in Korea? Let me know!
