It has been such a long time since I have had a Thriftventure! I thought I would take you all with me for "The Big Reveal", all the above goodies grabbed for under a dollar,with the 2 cool vintage Scrabble games for only 37 cents each!
A (wrinkley)vintage red satin pagoda cheongsam for 3.00 dollars.
Call me crazy, but this lemon yellow cotton nighty (for less than a dollar!)will serve me wonderfully with another cotton slip 'neath it and belted with a tooled leather belt and boots,cause it's been hot as blue blazes here in Texas! The leopard coat with velvet piping,will work this fall as an evening coat(2 bux).
My oldest jewel continues to develop her own crazy eye for what she enjoys. She shared an adorable story with me today,about her list of what she and friends find "ironically cool" (her words). Polka dots are cool but not ironic. Anything shiny or sparkley is NOT cool,and childhood cartoon characters are the most ironic(oh yes,she thinks she has shed her childhood).
Thus we set about to find a Minnie Mouse baby sweater(that could still fit),to no avail. However ,I think we bonused on this cutey-cute seal sweater. She plans to hack off the sleeves and wear it with her dance clothes (ballet and such).
Check this crazy 80's frock! It just fits my angel with the crooked halo(under 5 bux). She's thinking perhaps she should cut out a rocket ship in felt and have me blanket stitch it on. Oh,yes rocket ships with flames shooting out the bottom,very ironic! Oh,it came with a matching bolero ,more was definitely more in the 80's.
In 1988 Pierre Cardin thought nothing of adding multiple feather boas to the skirt and the hat.
Mister Ungaro said,"Silhouette Schmilhouette",eek!
Mister LaCroix showed a bit of restraint,but come on now ,were those sleeves/glove thingys really called for?
