Week #1 – Cambridge – Poor Little Rich Girl
Vintage inspired consignment clothing and accessories
Sunday afternoon. Gagan is at MIT with his study group slogging away. A good wife would take this time to clean the apartment, and have dinner cooking on the stove and welcome him with a smile on her face with a glass of water at the door.
You have got to be kidding! No offense to the “good wife” but I’d rather be out exploring this lovely city while I’ve got the chance. But, before I left, I did stock the fridge with some frozen veggies and milk. There is always cereal too you know 🙂 Don’t get me wrong, I do love to cook but right now I don’t even have a can opener in the house! I need my gadgets. So I suppressed the guilt, donned my wind breaker and after 3 flight of stairs down, was on my way to Francesca’s at the Cambridge Side Galleria when I spotted this cool store and I decided this is going to be my first entry.
Cambridge boasts more than 250+ local businesses and PLRG is one of them. I am not much of a thrift store shopper but this store was CUTE! Definitely vintage inspired, you could tell a lot of love went into arranging the items, which is not an easy job. The shoes were my favorite spot. I even tried on a few. And because I am on the lookout for cute flats these days, I fell in love with a pair of maroon Earth shoes. But I have enough shoes. So I resisted 🙂
Even though I wasn’t interested in the clothes, I did look at them. They were awfully cute! I am a little uncomfortable buying used clothes and shoes but today for the first time I did feel like buying them. It’s all in the presentation. They all looked very clean and neatly arranged and the staff was super helpful. It’s obvious they take pride in their business and I would be proud to take a friend in there.
However, if you are a serious thrift shopper, the prices are a bit on the higher side. Most of the skirts and pants I li
ked were around $30. They had a good selection of skirts and dresses were really cute. I am pretty sure I’ll go back in there to explore a bit more. I think there were some new items in there but I was sort of in a hurry so I didn’t ask.
If you are in the area, and like vintage inspired clothes and accessories, this is a store worth checking out!
