When I have the time, my hunt for trendy treasures brings me outside the city. The thrift stores in Toronto are so picked over that I normally leave empty-handed yet, those in the suburbs have the promise of at least one great find. One occasion brought me to a Value Village in Scarborough where I made, quite possibly, the greatest thrift store find OF ALL TIME. As I walked through the shoe section last Saturday these Valentino’s, in the classic red colour, practically leapt off the shelf directly into my hands. To my despair, they were 1.5 sizes too small for my giant feet but they fit perfectly on the footsies of my good friend Jess – a true Cinderella story!
