Hi, folks! Went to Plato’s Closet for the first time today and was really impressed with the sheer volume of clothing and accessories they sell. First I perused their bags and purses. I saw a few things I liked, but I didn’t want to spend $12 on the cute plaid messenger bag (maybe I’ll go back and get it another time). I saw a pair of Cons that I considered getting, but skipped it this time. The men’s jeans were all too big and baggy for my tastes, so I skipped those too. I hit up the huge wall-o-tshirts, and found a few that I really liked. I also picked up a purple plaid button down shirt, and a small shirt for my partner’s teen daughter. Instagram pics below:

Anarchist Closet is a one-woman shop located here in Tampa, and is known as a thrift store for those of the gothic or punk persuasion. They have a great selection, some awesome costume options for the upcoming Halloween holiday, and tons of shoes! The owner is amazing, too. I only bought 3 things for myself (the majority of our fashion budget went to my partner’s daughter, who spent about $150 on herself!). They also accept orders on footwear, and have a great selection to choose from. This time around I picked up:
Green army jacket – boy do I have plans for this one! I’ve already priced some gunmetal black spikes for the shoulders, and added a patch to the chest (more to come!). Cost: $10
Dead Kennedy’s patch. Cost: $4. Love DK and had to make them the first addition to my collection.
Skully and spike belt buckle. Having worn this for almost a week now, I can say that it’s probably pewter. I know this because I have an allergy to nickel, and most belt buckles cause a reaction with my skin. I haven’t had any such problem with this nifty looking buckle. Cost: $5.
I have another patch (a transgender one) on it’s way from Etsy to add to the jacket, and I’ll be purchasing the spikes soon from Studsandspikes.com
Can’t wait to hit up another thrift store soon! Stay tuned!
