Lacy frills

Shirt: Thrifted // Necklace: AE // Jeans: Thrifted // Shoes: Ross

This lacy top was a recent thrifty find, only four dollars! Yes, you read that correctly, four dollars! I was initially excited about the purchase, and then I began going back & forth on whether it was really a good find. It sat there, lonely & cold in my closet...waiting for me to accept it for who it really is--too far? Okay well it did sit there for a while & then I eventually decided that I should try it, and now I'm in love. I'll be pairing this with pencil skirts, high waisted jeans, slacks, the works. 

What's your latest thrifty find?! Comment & tell me about it or if you've blogged about it leave the link so I can visit & see!

Vintage Heels & Giveaway Winner!

Dress: Tj Maxx // Tights: Kohls // Shoes: Thrifted // Necklace: Chewlry

These shoes were a thrifty find of my sister & mom. Luckily, I am the only girl in my family with my size feet. Which means, all size seven finds are mine! One thing I love about older heels is that they aren't so dang tall. Don't get me wrong, I love me some tall heels, but sometimes it's nice to get a little height without running the risk of sprained ankles. 

I've begun the november challenge of listing three things you're grateful for each day. I'm pretty sure this has turned into one of those facebook fads that has swooped through the internet for years now, and you know what? I like it. Why not do a little extra to get into the holiday spirit?

To see what I'm grateful for, visit my facebook page & feel free to send me a link to your thankful fors!

It's not an outfit post, but you can't deny how snazzy these little Misfits look. 
Johnny, my friend Tara & I have been sitting around stitching up these quirky little creatures all afternoon.

More details about this to come on our little sweatshop but until then I just had to ask...

What do you guys think?!

I'm Stealing Halloween Back.

Last year, Johnny and I spent halloween watching a movie & eating all sorts of fall treats---OUT of costume. Unless you count to-lazy-to-dress-up-just-eating-my-weight-in-sweet-potato-fries a costume. 
This year things started looking all too similar. As Johnny was on his way home last night, I had had it with his, "I don't want to dress up, it's not my thing" deal. enough. I called him and said "I'm stealing halloween back. I love dressing up. You're going to be Julia Child & I am your short, adoring husband--your outfit is laying on the bed & we are leaving to a party in 15 minutes.

Luckily, he was a total sport about it. He got dressed up, & even fit into a pair of my old tights & a pencil skirt. It pays to have keep those clothes from 35 pounds ago--the perfect costume shop. He may not like that I share this, but he actually got so into character that I had to tell him to stop speaking like Julia Child. 

It looks like someone does like dressing up after all.
