Look at this adorable dollie!!! My mother was the actual thrifter victor on this sweet thing,and she gifted it to me this past weekend!
She wears a long vintage lacey,ecru dress,that I myself would love....and she sweeps her long red hair into a ponytail fastened with a vintage rhinestone clip!For extra quirky-ness she chose the orange Maryjane's instead of the more predictable black. A girl after my own heart I tell you!
Ah,but I have been holding back on you in the area of Thriftventures. I have been hitting the thrifts at least once a week. The Sal/Army close to us has half off clothes customer appreciation Wednesdays and believe me I HAVE been indulging!!Your probably wondering whats so special about this top,well to start with it was originally 1.99 original tags on. I don't usually partake of modern clothes from the thrift unless they are overalls....
...but I found this shirt irresistible,with its vintage like print and tiny rick-rack trim. Couple that with one of my fav-o-rite style tenets, a sheer see-thru quality,AND it was soft as buttah!I was a goner for it! I also grabbed the vintage pearl /link necklace for 1.99 !
I know HOW can I be thinking Spring while still in the throes of 90 degree weather and hopefully the promise of cooler days ahead? Well, could YOU have resisted this hard plastic bunny for 59 cents? Or how about the planter ,also for 59 cents? The embroidered card table cloth was.99,and I splurged on the daisy doily for 2.99!
This night gown was just a buck with the half off,could you scream for the print(click to enlarge)?
This is how I will wear it if it ever gets cold enough!
Look at this crazy old lady, haus frau dress,also a buck.
My best college chum and I called both of these looks "Worship of the Ugly",it was a bit of a regular uniform I never grew out of!
This was the cherry atop my thrift fudge sundae !!! A seafoam green floor length Cheongsam for 2.50(orig price tag 4.99)! I haven't even tried it on yet,but I felt it was worth the gamble!
Well I gotta run. This afternoon is phase 2 of my little blossoms dentist visits,but before I go.....
...and just to cleanse the palate of unseasonable fluffy bunnies,I give you the Rankin/Bass' 1967 trailer for Mad Monster Party!
Next up.... ookie Pagoda Halloween decor!
