This is the second post about a very exciting topic – plus size thrifting in Singapore. In case you missed my first post about Praisehaven Mega Family Thrift Store, you can find it HERE.
In brief, my first attempt to find something nice and suitable for me was a big success. Encouraged by my first thrifting experience, I headed off to another shop – REFASH. I was very excited. I did my research and I was looking forward to visiting the shop where all the items are beautifully arranged by colors. I thought that this would be very eyes pleasing and easy to find colour I like.
After reading all this info, I was quite disappointed. It is true that the information I was reading was about the shop at City Plaza shopping mall and I visited the shop at Northpoint City. I kind of expected that it will be the same anywhere I go. The shop in Northpoint City is quite a small nook and not organized by colors.
I knew that is just a first impression and my expectations were very high. The most important question is: is it possible to find there something for me? I found the red dress with an asymmetrical skirt from Asian brand Love, Bonito. There weren’t fitting rooms there, so I just checked the label. I saw the size UK14, so I thought I’m safe. I’m between UK14 and UK16. It depends on the brand, material, and cut of the clothes.
The dress is very nice. I love the cut, color and material. I was quite sad when I find out at home that sizes are running small. I can’t zip it up on the back. I think the dress is more likely between UK10-UK12. My first clue was that it is an Asian brand and their sizing is smaller than European. I would know that if I checked their website for size chart before I bought the dress. But I’m learning.
I would like to show you the dress anyway. I added a black sweater, so the unzipped back isn’t visible. If the size was right, I would keep the dress. Never mind, I’m passing it on. I’m sure it will make some lady very happy.
