Hey! First of all, huge thanks to the new followers. I really appreciate logging on and finding out somebody has added my blog to their reading list! ;D Seriously, it makes my day.
Anyway, I've got a few thrift finds to share! I tried using my actual camera for this post. It's rather tempermental... it really only takes pictures that aren't blurry in natural light. And since I have no tripod and am usually occupied until the evening hours, that's not always an easy arrangment to come by for photo ops. But-- onward!
The first is this AWESOME dress...
Something I'd definitely like to point out about this dress is that it's vintage and tagged as a size 8. Now, obviously I'm no size 8, people. Try stuff on! It might not fit like the maker 'intended,' but that doesn't always mean you have to disregard it completely!
I have no idea how to wear this thing though. The print is SO bold that my first inclination was to wear it with my cropped denim jacket. But that just doesn't agree with the shape of this dress-- something about a jacket hitting near the tiered ruffles just looks really frumpy. Ideas?
I also found these fantastic ankle boots, with cute little cut-out detail.
AND a pair of Rocket Dog moccassins that are soooo soft.
My cousin's coming up to SC from TX to live with me in the next few months (YAY!), and we've been talking about how we'd like to decorate our apartment. We're thinking cute little English cottage-type vintage details. So when I saw this vase-thing for $2, I picked it up.
The top of it is a little chipped... but I figure that just adds to the charm. ;D
