I went thrift-shopping at Mr Musashi again, got some more clothes, and decided to post them all to
brag show to you guys. All in all, I spent a mere RM50.50 TOTAL for 7 tops and a bag.
This is not my first haul from this place. I’ve written about them before in this post. Thrift shopping has ruined me. I get really good stuff for really cheap prices. Not all thrift shops are created equal – the good ones should have: fitting rooms, clean clothes with clear price tags, costs less than RM10 per piece, and most importantly no crowd so you can check out racks of clothes in peace. I really like Mr Musashi because the clothes come from Japan (also US) apparently, and I like me some Japanese fashion.
Here’s what I got:
1. This top with understated geometric details
It’s more blue than grey, actually. Super flowy.
2. This blue-red stripe top
Thick material and super flattering to wear with skirts.
3. This basic Uniqlo grey top
Uniqlo basic tops are always handy to have.
4. This long-sleeve top with rainbow stripes
Not gonna lie – got it because of the dope stripes.
5. This bag, which comfortably fits my giant ass laptop
It’s the same shape as a typical Japanese high school bag, which I love.
6. This pretty black top which made my sister say ‘Kakya you look really really nice’
Thanks sis! (Considering she’s fashionable af, this is a huge compliment!)
7. This V-neck grey top with interesting bust design
Confirm cannot wear during Ramadan one.
8. (not pictured) Basic short-sleeved black v-neck top
Can’t go wrong with basic black top.
Again, the total cost for all 8 items was just RM50.50, which puts the average price per piece at just RM6.31. I’m super ok with this. Additionally, I can get super picky on quality as well so none of these items here should die within 3 washes.
There’s something about successful thrift shopping hauls in general that will puts me in a very good mood. I don’t particularly enjoy shopping for clothes, I am not fashion forward (nor do I want to be, seems like too much work) and I definitely hate spending too much money on them. So its awesome to get many second-hand stuff at once, for cheap. Plus, help local businesses. Plus, reuse reduce buy used and shit, yay environment. It’s a big win all around.
If you’re heading to Perak, stop by a local Mr Musashi. They are not in KL yet. I listed their addresses here.
Do you have a thrift shop to recommend, too? Put in comments and share please 🙂
