I made a killing at Buffalo Exchange last week.
I turned in a bag of clothes and found 3 tops and an Armani Ex dress.
With the trade balance, I only had to pay $1.89 out of pocket.
So, even though this top was $7.50 AND marked half off for $3.25,
it really cost me about $.42.
The feather came from a duck at White Rock Lake.
Found by a boy, given to Marianne, passed on to me.
We are so used to seeing feathers - in real life and art.
Fashion, decor, floating down from a tree.
But when you take the time to really look at them, think about them -
the engineering and architecture is something else.
And birds just casually grow these things. TO FLY.
This particular feather really brought out the wild cat in Pedal. Hunting eyes!
Oooooooh a good Good GOOD find.
One of those that when picked up, I thought, “will this even fit on my body?”
I mean, it does.
It’s a comfy, floating, sexy little thing, no?
The wrinkling is basically impossible to combat.
Steamed it in the bathroom, then took an iron to it.
The top will de-wrinkle, but the skirt just wrinkles back up again, so sticking with that.
Just a simple basic.
I always feel frenchie when I have on all dark blue.
Goes nicely with the brown of these vintage heels.
Rarely do I wear a pony tail, but sometimes ‘tis necessary.
Summer. Bad hair days. Et Cetera.
Some ladies can really rock them, but tricky for me.
Will look good, then not good, [adjust], higher, lower, [wash hair], no more pony.
Solid thrift find (even had the extra button, still!) but I think I will turn this skirt in at Buffalo Exhange.
Though it seemed like a perfect fit, it sits lower than I’d like.
I’m really into skirts/pants sitting at my high waist to accentuate curves.
Lower sitting waists tend to make me appear as a solid tube.
Polka dots and floral.
At Thrift Town this day I bought $10+some change worth of merch.
A $5 coupon made everything half price (skirt was marked $4.99).
And you remember this tank I cut up from a tee, yes?
Basically the same cut as the other cotton tube skirt I recently acquired.
Turns out this style is perfect for…everything.
I’ll be keeping an eye out for more of them.
So good for summer.
The tshirt is also thrifted (buck or two, a while ago).
Last week I got the plants and flowers pictured for free!
A friend of a friend who works at a giant nursery was clearing stuff out.
We were literally told, “look around - take whatever you want!”
Dreamy. I filled my car.
Hopefully, I won’t kill them ALL.
