WANTED: MOTORCYCLE

Unlike all you spoiled kids in Alberta, B.C, Ontario, and Quebec, us fashionistas here in Manitoba don't have access to an Urban Outfitters (the closest one is an 8 hour drive across the US border to Minneapolis). To my extreme delight they are liquidating a bunch of their clothing HERE in WINNIPEG for dirt cheap prices at the Liquidation World on Wellington (by the airport)! I picked up this cropped black motorcycle jacket yesterday (regular $138.00) for $28.00!
Wearing the Aldo heels (again), Urban Outfitters ruched lamé leggings, the bf's tank, Urban Outfitters cropped motorcycle jacket.
My bf Clay and I decided to do some more bargain hunting today and headed over to Ragpicker's Retro Rummage Sale where I picked up some more goodies. Here's a sneak peek:

A pink/blue/black abstract print dress, brown and pink mini dress with 3/4 puff sleeves, and a sky blue suede fringed jacket. These lovelies will be making an appearance in posts in the near future!
We then headed over to The Pastry Castle for lunch where I pracitcally inhaled this delicious Greek salad (shopping can make you work up an appetite, ok?!).
All in all, a fabulous day out with my lovermanfriend. If you're ever in Winnipeg, you must visit the Exchange District for amazing vintage shopping and great dining. Hope you all have a great weekend and I look forward to your comments!

  3. I feel your pain. I am nowhere near an Urban Outfitters, H&M, Forever 21, etc., etc. , etc. But nothing fuels creativity better than limited resources.
    I can't see your pics, but I will be checking back!

    What a great steal. I don't think I'd be able to pay $128 for a pleather jacket... I'm doing fine with my $48 one from F21 lol.

    Sweet stuff, I love the color of the fringe jacket

  15. I dropped by ragpicker's today as well. I was a little put off by the lack of male clothing though, and the lady running the cash seemed somewhat aloof. Cool place, but I'd prefer hungover empire (357 langside) any day ; )

  27. Thanks you for making me feel lucky that I do have access to and Urban Outfitters (I was recently moaning that there wasn't one closer). But I must say that I am a bit jealous that you got to shop liquidation. --WOW-- Whenever I go to Urban Outfitters I am in awe of everything, but only ever buy anything from the sale rack.
