Ya know,I had actually gotten into a wonderful bloggy groove!My goal for the Fall was to post twice a week,and visit my buddies more often... and then life at the Pagoda heats up.. Ah well...the best laid plans,as they say...
I did want to thank everyone so much for their suggestions on styling for the ball gown. The one thing I really want to do is wear my hair up.....but guess what? I have to perform a number from Hair,in costume.Tonight ,when I finish this post I plan to work on a quickie "put it up,take it down.and put it back up " solution!
...but on with the thrifty fashion!!! I was so excited when I found this bed jacket on the half off day at the Sal Army! You might recall what a big fan I am of this garment and I hadn't found one in quite awhile,and the details are superb. The cost? 1 buckaroo!The weather has been utterly warm here in Big D,it will actually work wonderfully for me before Spring!
This dress looks a bit dowdy in this picture,but at 3 dollars I saw the potential. I adore the fall colors ,the sheerness and the paisley print.
A pencil skirt has been on my thrift to do list for over a year. I flipped when I found this one for 3 dollars(theres that strange thrift pattern again!).I plan on finding a skinny black belt and wearing it with black tights,black pumps ,and a tight ,tucked in black sweater. I shall adorn it with ropes of pearls.
Heres the paisley dress,with the lining cut out. I plan to take this combo for a test drive tomorrow at a long rehearsal.Thanks for being my style laboratory tonight!
These lovely clear glass cannisters were also checked off my thrift to do list. Cost? 2 bux each.I have incorporated them into my Thanksgiving decor,pics soon. The enameled cannister was just 19 cents(isn't that a weird price?). I couldn't pass it up it was in some of my favorite Fall colors!
I shall see you next week,with the after pictures of my finished revamped ball gown. My mother and I came up with a very creative solution!
