I am not a huge second hand shopper. I appreciate those stores. I sell my clothes to those stores. I just don't usual buy from those stores. Now don't judge me, I have a reason.
I am rather weird about germs. I don't like second hand clothes for the same reasons I don't like eating food that has been prepared at a strangers home or why I don't like using library books. I just don't do well with the unknown origin of things, its scares me. So for the most part I stay away from thrift stores, potluck dinners and libraries for these very reasons.
I said all of that to get to this point... this dress is indeed a second hand buy! I stumbled upon it the other day when I was selling a few things & I just couldn't pass it up. When the fashion & the price tag are right I will overcome my fear & embrace the unknown!
