Once again, in honour of my National Thrift Store Day month-long feature, items featured in this look are all pre-loved. They include:

  • Calvin Klein pink dress and black boots from Value Village, Coquitlam: $30
  • A fuchsia necklace and black rhinestone necklace from Crazy About Clothes Consignment, Maple Ridge: $20
  • Turquoise belt Art Knapp, Coquitlam (not new, but from the discount bin and considering how many people already tried it on, it’s pretty much the same thing): $5

Total cost (not including jewelry): $55
