Pretty as a Doll

My Sister-in-Law said that I looked pretty as a doll today, which I thought was a very sweet thing for her to say. (she also gave me a rockin' coat she found, so that was awesome too!). We took photos outside today, and I must say, I quite like the results. Perhaps I'll have to venture out for more outdoor locations :)

Mr. Not-in-Pajamas gave me a beautiful necklace last night. Isn't it lovely?

Outfit Details: 
Dress, thrifted. Socks, target. Shoes, Payless. Necklace, Garnet and beryl, a gift from Jamison :)

Only Happy When It Rains

Actually, that's not true, but that song just came on the radio and it seemed fitting seeing how much it's raining today. (I actually finally broke down and bought an umbrella today!) I was going for a kind of scholarly, librarian look today, but the boots (which went on last) kind of changed the whole feel of the outfit. So now I'm sort of librarian rock? rockbrarian?

Outfit Details: Cardigan, Target. Blouse, thrifted. Skirt, thrifted. Boots, thrifted. Glasses, foko.

Safari Glam

A bunch of thrifted goodies today - the belt, shirt, and boots are all recent finds!!! I'm wearing this to go see a matinee today with some friends - I'll be bringing a sweater or a jacket, since theatre's are notoriously cold.

I LOVE these boots! They're so 70's retro cowboy, but also kind of Art Deco somehow.

Belt - I'm not usually one for animal prints, but I really liked this one, and I think it adds just enough without being gaudy.

Outfit Details:
Shirt, Belt, and Boots, thrifted. Pants, Charlotte Russe, I think (it's been years).

Polkadot Retro

My girlfriend Becky and I went thrifting yesterday and boy, did we strike it rich!!! I found so much stuff and I want to show you everything! But you'll have to wait, as I unveil a new outfit each day - but don't worry there is enough for many days in the foreseeable future :)

Today's outfit is a bit retro, and I love it. The weather is warm enough for a halter today (though my modesty will probably make me take a white cardigan with me), and it's beautiful and sunny outside. Perfect for running errands!

Today's outfit:
halter top and skirt, thrifted. Shoes, Payless.

More thrifted items today - I love thrifting so much! It has opened so many styles to me that I would not have tried at more expensive prices. It's so much fun sorting through racks of clothing to find that one perfect piece (especially when the price tag says 3$!).

Here are some thrifted finds:
