We recently went on a Field Trip to a Wonderful Thrift Boutique. The Independently owned thrift is called Gilda Designer Thrift Boutique. The wonderful owner Gilda was gracious enough to allow us to interview her for our 1st Thrift in Time live blog post.
Name:Gilda Designer Thrift Boutique
Location: 2419 W North Ave
b/t Western Ave & Artesian Ave
Chicago has some of the best independent thrifts and I am very happy to introduce you to Gilda. This designer thrift has a mix of new and gently used treasures. The atmosphere is set as soon as you walk in. With Vivid displays and a wonderful presentation Gilda welcomes you no invites you to explore touch and look. Truly a visual feast for the senses.
On this day it was a beautiful afternoon and we decided to just be ourselves and Gilda herself is a very elegant yet down to earth woman just like her beautiful boutique. I decided to purchase a Beautiful silk kimono that I will have modified by my Fashioner (Seamster) and also a parasol for bright sunny days. Great to keep the Sun off of you.
Per usual I have included my mural finds around the Chi. I hope you enjoy. Picture 11 is my co-worker I met at at the thrift in a random way.
My look for this day was a total of thrift and artist made.
