Hiya Blogland!! I hope everyone has had a fabulous weekend. I've been busy getting my autumn decorating done. Seriously--I have 5 bins of autumn decorations. My fav season next to Christmas!! Pictures later this week!!
First up is today's outfit post. Everything is thrifted/gifted. I picked up the jacket at the charity shop whilst running errands yesterday for $4!! I believe it had a skirt with it originally. There's no tags in it. I wore it over an old black camisole for some modesty. It has shoulder pads and a rather 40's retro silhouette. I paired it with a thrifted ruffle hem skirt. The shoes are Clark's Artisan I thrifted for under $5 last spring. They were unworn, a beige color, and had a grease stain on them. I got some leather dye and made them black!! And of course someone had to get in the action!!
Here's a close-up of the bling. the earrings are vintage clip-ons I converted to pierced, bracelets were thrifted. The brooch is a vintage hair ornament I made into a brooch. The purse is my great-grandmother's from the 1940's. The ALG monogram stands for Anna Lillian Grimes. I treasure it!!
As I said I stopped at a couple of charity shops yesterday in town. I managed to find a few goodies!!
Another view of the jacket. It's definitely polyester and the front zips.
I found another awesome tartan buttondown blouse for $3!! It's JonesNewYork and is gorgeous in it's aqua, pink and apple green glory!!
The one charity shop in town always has the nicest vintage scarves and craft/sewing stuff. I scored some 1950s-1980's Workbasket craft mags for 10 cents each. I love reading about old handiwork!
Here are some scarves. Black & white polka dots are always "in" in my book and I love the vintage pale grey and floral of the silk chiffon one!
This next scarf was the fab find #2 of the day (next to the jacket). a glorious vintage silk scarf with a FLAMENCO DANCER and a BULL FIGHTER!!!!
I'm off to take Miss Gracie a walk if I can peel her off Daddy's lap. They are watching football together!
I'll be back on Tuesday!!
