Unintentional happy alliteration. Cosmic tangent approaching. After only being fortunate with skirts, shorts, dresses and the like, the universe has decided to even the scales by allowing a slew of tops for me to find. And in this universe, the deities in question are of course, the Thrift Gods. After long being denied from the Summer Hill Anglicare - the ultimate thrifter's haven, for so long, the dam not only burst, it shattered, exploded. So why have I deemed it as such? Well, it's the only place that I know of that sells in accordance to weight, more accurately, $8/kg. Beginning to see why it's my utopia? I managed to find 19 things (2 shirts not pictured were for a friend) for $32. A measly $1.70 each. What? And let me tell you, I managed to find a couple of things that would've easily doubled if not tripled that price, that total. Insanity! Of course, granted, you need a few hour's of determination, an iron nose against warehouse dust and preferably a companion to help whittle the hours away, but oh god, is it worth it.

Since I can't have pink gingham skirts, I'll take a pink Ralph Lauren gingham shirt instead! I swear that as ridiculous as it sounds, there is a deity up there that controls what you find. In one trip not only did I satisfy my tops quota but also my pastels one. Light pink, sky blue and peach. Really, what kind of game of chance to they play up there? As they're all button down shirts, rather than wear them conventionally tucked into skirts, I was thinking that it be worn unbuttoned over shirts before being tucked in to offer more contrast play offs.
So that concludes my favouritest place ever to thrift, factoring in unpredictability and price. Oh and relationship bonding as well, admittedly, you can easily go a bit loopy after engaging in your autopilot setting. And depending on how the weather fares, the next excavation posts will be dedicated to either Surry Hills or Bondi. I am excited!
