My Favorite Hat


Hat: Tea Shop
Pearl Earrings and Ring: Gifts from Hubby
Necklace, Sweater, Belt, Skirt, Shoes, Purse: Thrifted

I didn't even realize I was wearing a full on thrifted outfit until just now.  Sweet!  I love thrifting, I can find clothes that I love at a price my wallet loves.  Sometimes you have to look at things a little differently than when you're shopping at say, the Mall, but that's part of the fun for me.  It makes me kinda giddy to rescue things. :o)

My little sweater was marred by set in coffee stains, but that didn't stop me one second.  I know the power of a ton of OxiClean in a sink left to soak For.ev.er!

The oh so soft fur purse had no lining and a dinky beaded strap. Pfft!  I sewed in my own lining (wish I had taken a photo of the inside, it has fishing poles and lures), with pockets the right sizes for my phone and lipstick(s).  I had the houndstooth fabric for a pencil skirt that I never got around to sewing, it made the perfect strap.

My beautiful skirt is about three sizes smaller than I normally wear!  I don't look too closely at sizes when thrifting, many wonderful things wouldn't be in my closet if I did.  In a thrift shop you are seeing sizes of varying decades, styles, and stores.

Do you like to thrift shop too?

  4. Thrift shops are amazing - we call them 'charity shops' here, and I get a large proportion of my clothes from them these days, as I love vintage too, and it's a great way to pick up some unusual pieces.

    I love your shoes here! Px

    1. I love these shoes too, but I can't say if they're my favorite or not. I have too many beautiful shoes to pick a favorite I'm afraid. :o)
