These pieces are the remainder of what I found at that magnificent Thrift store bag sale!
This dress is the epitome of K's LBD. I cannot tell you how many variations of this dress I have in my closet...but THIS is the first of this exact combo. It is all things good in my eyes.
I am a big fan of baby doll waist dresses I love slightly, but not over-done, poofy sleeves. As a girl that sweats like a boy that lives in a place that reaches over 100 degrees for months out of the year black is near and dear to my heart. Aaaaand as a short girl you know how I love that just above the knee hem. Yep. Pretty good find if I do say so myself.
This little red shift looks as thought it's just terribly wrinkled but it is covered in embroidered red roses, with cutouts at the waist and hem. (I seriously need help with my camera and blog, I am at a loss with how things are getting smaller and smaller....argh!)
Tank: Old Navy
This skirt. Oooooooh this pencil skirt. It is a tiny olive-coloured, wool, hounds tooth from Banana Republic. I have not only had the fortune of finding this skirt at a thrift store before but have now found it again in a size that is a little more accurate! I LOVE this skirt but have sadly only been able to wear it on rare occasions when my health is kind of ok and my tummy is happy. I haven't been able to wear it in months, no matter how much I work out or watch what I eat because my tummy problems have made me too bloated to fit into it. (also my ribs and there is nothing I can do about that....I'm just not suppose to be a size 0) I keep trying that darn skirt on and it is just a bit too small.
I cannot believe I found it, same exact skirt, one size up. I am so excited! Egad. I love it.
Thank you thrift stores!!!
Again, for some reason, the colour is coming across inaccurately. In actuality it's royal purple. It's divine! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!
Skirt: Handmedown from old roommate
Shoes: Old Navy
You can't tell but this little blue top I bought has red bows printed all over it.
I still cannot believe each of the pieces I bought were .29 cents.
Lovies and Lassitude,
PS. Song of the day:
Avi Buffalo - What's It In For.
The new band I am quasi in had a show earlier this week, we played a show with this band. They are amazing and Avi himself is bafflingly kind and write way beyond his years. Check them out if you haven't heard them yet.
