3 cheapest items in my closet28/08/2015
First off, let me point out some of the things you can buy for 6 euros in Amsterdam:
– a phallus shaped salt & pepper shakers
– 18 cigarettes
– almost one 24hr bus card
– a vintage jacket, 100% silk blouse, viscose & silk blend kimono
If I was a porn star, I might’ve gone with the first thing on this list. But being a style blogger, you know the last option was obviously what really caught my attention.
As I was wandering around the streets of Amsterdam Oost one day, I spotted a little flea market. Me being me, I had already spent a substantial amount of $$$ in the L’Oreal section of Kruidvat (dutch drugstore chain). Yet, I still decided to take just a quick glance at the offer of this newly discovered market, no strings attached. That glance turned into a gaze the moment I spotted the long-coveted vintage denim jacket. Then, as the seller was telling me that the price of said jacket was 2 euros – the gaze quickly transformed into a jaw-drop. I felt inclined to look around some more and wouldn’t you know – two more high quality treasures popped out: this gorgeous navy silk blouse and the flowy paisley kimono. They say three’s a charm and I couldn’t agree more. Especially if you’re fortunate enough to score them for less than a coffee at Starbucks! And if you’re not, don’t fret – here are some similar items you can pick up online:
