'Hello. I'm a pair of silver space shoes, perfect condition, and I cost a mere $2. Please take me home on the big metal bird with you.'
'Can I come? Dr Scholl made me so I am very comfortable. I'm only $2, too!'
Both pairs of shoes came from the Arc Foundation. And I know at least two of you (hello WFI and GSE!) are going to hate them, because they always hate my shoes.
These are vintage Boy Scouts of America shorts and my favourite find, $7 from Aardvarks. I've lived in them ever since, in fact they are damp from being washed last night after I splattered myself with hot oil when making fish tacos. (Addicted.)
Look how cute the buttons are!
Brand new, perfect condition Jaeger new wool jumper. Come to momma. My new fave jumper! From the Council Thrift Shop, $15, expensive for thrift but still a bargain.
'Hello. Yes, I am a challenging mid-length skirt but I'm the it-length for the foreseeable so I'm game-on if you are?'
I love this diamante USA brooch. It's going on my denim jacket for that Miss American Pie look.
This S tie pin is a present for my Ma (Susie). But I might keep it for myself. Hehe. Both cost pennies from Super Thrift.
This dress is a challenging conundrum of padded shoulders, vertical stripes and weird extremely clingy material. But I sort of love it. From Super Thrift again, for pennies.
This was even weirder than talking shoes. I have actually owned this exact vintage jumper before and I wore it to death. Angora, from Nordstrom, brand-new condition. Found in the Arc Foundation, for tiny beans.
There was also a beautiful black, lined, fitted silk evening shell but I can't find it and I'm sure I've forgotten something else. As I'm not working at the moment thrift shopping is so awesomely perfect for grabbing a few things to refresh the old wardrobe. Which is now so full I can't close the door...
