Full Service Station

Mr. Not in Pajamas and I stopped to get gas and I thought it was a great opportunity to showcase my outfit today. I sure do love this necklace - I've been wearing it a ton lately. I picked it up at the thrift store and it has no makers mark that I can find. Anyone have an idea who the artist might be? let me know in comments :)

The modification I made is to the skirt. It is thrifted and it needed the underlayer hemmed up - I think the top layer shrunk while the under layer didn't - leaving a big of extra hanging down. It was a quick fix, and now it looks great!

Outfit Details: 
Skirt, vest, shirt, tights, and necklace, all thrifted. Boots, Whiplash (San Diego).

Under the Cherry Moon

I want to live life to the ultimate high
Maybe I'll die young like heroes die
Maybe I'll kiss u some wild special way
If nobody kills me or thrills me soon,
I'll die in your arms under the cherry moon

Not to be Outdone

So, I was all ready to go this morning when my husband came out looking like the proverbial "million dollars": black jeans, purple button-up long sleeved shirt, gray corduroy sports jacket, and brilliantly white, previously unworn sketchers. Needless to say, I hauled my little butt right back into the closet to find something more suitable to wear, even as he followed me, protesting that what I was wearing was fine. Here's what I ended up wearing. I wish I'd taken a photo of him so you could see how great he looked, but he prefers to remain behind the camera :).

Outfit Details:
Sweater, thrifted. Skirt, gift from Becky. Boots, thrifted. Broach, thrifted. Pearl and gold necklace and Coach purse, gifts from my husband.

Blue Suede Shoes

I found these great shoes at the thrift store for $2.50!  I love them! And thank goodness for sunny days! It's been gloomy/rainy for a week, and I was starting to get seriously depressed. I'm solar powered! Oh, and, as you can see, we got curtains! Yay!
