The weather has been perfectly hot and sunny the whole week and I even got some tan! Being all the time outside and wearing tanktops, yeah, I could do that all year long. If only I lived in a hot climate with summerish winters!
During this week, I accidentally visited more second hand shops than I normally would. Yesterday I bought a lot of stuff, including some interesting textiles, raw food books, shirts that I'd like to turn into tanktops, huge leather coat that I got for free (I am dreaming of white leather tanktop) and a huge wooden African style necklace.
I am really into wooden accessories. They have more value to me than some shiny crappy metal rings, bracelets and other stuff you find everywhere. The one I found for five euros is so huge and noisy, like a musical instrument when you walk with it. A proper wooden statement necklace, that will get barely noticeable when worn on a green or brown garment. Although it looks like an African style necklace, I have no idea where is it produced or where is the tree material from. I wonder if I am its second owner or maybe the tenth? But now it is mine and it's my turn to enjoy it!
Before you run to H&M, Gina Tricot or Seppälä stores, please visit your second hands first.
You might even find clothes that are produced in your own country!
