Los Angeles, California
May 7, 2005
There is a huge range of stuff: dumpy T-shirts, suits from law dramas, the latest urban fashions from Samuel L. Jackson's movie Coach Carter, and evening wear from daytime soaps. I had my eye on a sweet baby blue tux from One Life to Live.
Even if you don’t buy anything, it’s fun to dress up and try on goofy outfits. And while not as cheap as a real thrift store (avoid Melrose), you can pick up some real bargains, especially in men’s suits. The real star’s duds probably don’t wind up here; you’re probably getting the castoffs from extras and minor characters. But it’s not everyday that you get to wear a real Day of Our Lives pair of pants!
