Value Village VIP!



Hello Stylistas, I went to the Value Village VIP event to view the new store in Stittsville before the grand opening on July 7th! VIP attendants got to shop the racks before the opening and viewed a fun fashion show produced by local stylist Justyna Barianecki-Andrzejak. Vallue Village partnered with the Canadian Diabetes Association and the Ontario Federation for Cerebral Palsy, and paid the organizations for every item that was donated on-site!

It was a splendid shopping experience, I was so anxious to go through the racks, Julie Lan from Pop Champagne was there and we had a great time! I love thrifting, it's a fantastic incentive to recycle and the most frugal way to remain uniquely stylish.


I had so much fun at the Value Village VIP event! A fashion show, clothes galore and lots of grub!


As soon as I arrived, I dropped off  my bag of donations and hit the racks to stock up again!


At Value Village, I always find amazing designer brands at very affordable prices!



I found this leather vest, it's so perfect for the fall! Priced at 8.99$ only?!




It was so much fun shopping with Pop Champagne, she picks the best items! Look at her fashion finds:


Julie is ecstatic about her newly coveted treasures: a leather purse, nine west shoes and the cutest hat!



I spotted this skirt...perfect for a night out on the town and only 3.99$?!



Everytime I go to Value Village, I always take a look at the ethnic clothing rack, you never know what you will discover!


I also love people watching at Value Village, so many fashionistas shop there! 




Btw, I wore this top I bought at another Value Village a few weeks ago, it was only 4$!!! Very boho-chic.



After going through the numerous racks at the Value Village VIP event...


I finally hit the changing rooms...my favorite part!


It was love at first sight when I saw this skirt, I always seem to find the best fall/winter items in the summer?!


I know I should not say this but...I can’t wait for the F/W season to wear this skirt! 8.99?!

 


Before my shopping excursion ended at the new Value Village, I hit the jewelry counter and left with a bunch of vintage goodies. The Value Village in Stittsville is a gold mine, it's a must to visit!
