about a week or so ago i stopped into a local thrift store just to “browse” and was pleasantly surprised with my finds///and i think you’ll agree: pretty fabulous!
this vintage Neiman-Marcus dress cost a whopping $4.99 just needed a couple inches taken off, which i let the dry cleaners do since i do not stitch silk which added $12 bringing the total cost under $20, THAT i can handle. love the print!
especially like this Forever 21 dress, for many reasons: beading, the cut, and COST-$3.99. it’s so comfortable, although just slightly big in the arm holes, since it’s a large, but no doubt close to perfection. i plan to give it a nautical feel when i decide to wear it out.
this vintage Jones New York top is a little big too but really that’s why i liked it so much, i can wear it baggy with a bandeau bra underneath, paired with some jeggings and i’ve got a devine dancing outfit! believe this top was $2.99, DEALZ DEALZ DEALZ!
lastly, while perusing through housewares i found this vintage Italian pasta tin, i took photos of all four sides because they are different and all super lovely. tried looking it up via Google but just got a couple websites of people selling similar pieces from the collection-which i may have to get, loving the colors and illustrations, goes so well with our kitchen too!
ps//i moved!!! the apartment is HUGE and finally finished. will be posting photos soon!
and we are actually storing our spaghetti in it
picked the dress up from the cleaners and realized they took off a little more than i would have liked, BUT it still works, just gotta be careful :))
this vintage brown purse has been pictured before but a month or so ago the strap broke from wear-n-tear and i finally got it fixed. since i only paid .99 cents for it investing a little money in the repair didn’t seem like a big deal, it’s so perfect for going out cause it’s small but has loads of room so i couldn’t just toss it out.
the necklace((s)) i picked up at the pop up sale last week-Bodega-it’s vintage and amazing. it’s something like four gold chains and seems to weigh about a pound-no joke-so heavy! def going to be a new staple necklace!!! the ring is from a boutique in Alabama, Everyday Indulgence, it’s a gold butterfly with a yellow stone of sort in the middle. so beautiful but kinda annoying to wear so it only leaves the house for special occasions. the little pomPOMs are also a new fav, given to me at the Natural Life showroom, they have a clip && key ring and can be used for anything. i like using them as flare, soooo cute!
went out with some lady friends for an Italian ((whites)) wine tasting in Decatur, Sarah being one of them. she wore this really amazing white lace vintage dress that went so well with her thick black bangs, you go girl!
well, i hope you can agree that i def lucked out finding such awesome pieces for so cheap! i wish you all the best in your thrifting adventures,
have a splendid Monday
