Retro to military classics

Angels Retro Sale February 6, 2010
Twitter, Facebook Group

There’s a special folder I like to call ‘Canned & Non-perishables’ that contain photos like these that act as insurance when sleep, laziness, natural disaster or sudden death strike on my end of the paper cup telephone. Today I’m too drunk on fatigue to string together a season-appropriate post so here we go, gone and dug out photos from the Angels Costume Sale from February. I’m sure they speak for themselves without having me write a semi-coherent paragraph here about something irrelevant. Here’s a one-word review for the sale: WHOOPEE! (Let’s not get me hooked on one-word reviews…)

There’s no news in when the next sale will happen, but follow them on twitter to be the first to know!

  1. that sale looks heavenly.
    i am very jealous at he moment(:

  2. Yah I’m still awake after you left.
    Hmmm I should go to this one next just for prop shopping for future shoots, hoping they’d relocate and transport the stock over at the Truman Brewery so it’s easier to travel for hungry fashion commuters like myself, just an idea??!! ;P

  3. Oh……. I want to go to this sale……. Want one in Hong Kong……………….

  4. Gosh, I wish such things existed here… instead all we have are Salvation Army thrift shops which seem to specialise in the BAD 80s fashion. Sigh.

    The best kind of post for my day today too (horrible mind-numbing day – all kinds of bleh!).
    I could happily look at another kazillion photos like this from the Angels sale! There’s something strangely relaxing about them. Anyway, in regards to the sale itself, I’m so jealous!!!

  8. aahhh such a glorious shopping opportunity. Whenever I imagine these warehouse sales I just expect it to be a total bloodbath trying to fight over all the clothes. But this looks somewhat peaceful and not at all hostel haha.

  9. oh my goodness, looks like it would have been absolute pandemonium!

  10. that sale look crazy and cool!

  15. haha i have spotted myself in one of the pictures!!
