UPDATE: Amcorp Mall management has banned the clothing stores! Go here for more details.
For those of you still curious as to where I buy my thrift dresses, they are mostly from one source: Amcorp Mall's Weekend Flea Market. And in fact, mostly from one stall - Chia's on Level 2, just past Book Xcess (pictured above). Her clothes are primarily overstock imported from Japan and China and tend to be vintage cut and high quality.
I like to get to the mall by about 12pm on Sundays because this is how crowded it gets.
Clothes shopping done, I can never resist a prowl through this amazing bookstore. Everything's brand new, and at least half retail price. Don't ask me how they do it. They even have books you won't find in our regular stores. My current addiction is their collection of Audiobooks - I have Neil Gaiman's gravelly English voice reading Neverwhere to me in my car now. ^_^
Yesterday was a GOOD haul by any standards. FIVE new dresses!:
These are both RM9
Just realised all of them are floral themed. But I don't just look at colour and print, I love classic cuts (as you may realise by now). Shifts and waist-hugging dresses with flouncy skirts.
This is quite the find. A silk Ann Taylor shift dress for RM5!
Embroidery details make two otherwise plain dresses interesting. The black & red one is RM15 and the cream one, RM9.
Can't wait to feature them in outfit posts! They're in the wash now as I type.
Amcorp Mall Flea Market is held on Saturdays & Sundays from 11am to 5pm.
