Outfit of the Day: Dashing through the Snow

Last Saturday our family had an early Christmas celebration, opening presents, a great dinner, taking family photos by the tree after too many glasses of champagne… The whole 9 yards!

I also got Sam to take a few shots of me, and give or take, my husband is a great photographer! So here we go, my outfit of the day!

Thrifting for Treasure 4: Jewelry (and other stuff)

I did it, I went and bought my first pair of vintage ear-rings. My grandma’s ear rings don’t count, because I didn’t pay a dime ( or a ruble, if you like) for them. Now these were a pair I got from Steeple People. Took my friend Zhanna there today. And she loved it! We also checked out the local Buffalo Exchange and there was a black Coach bag that I fell in love with, and you know how much I love vintage Coach purses, but I wasn’t willing to pay $24 for it. So I walked away from it. I know that it would’ve found a great home with me, but not for this much money.

I was also trying to find some bright colored jeans, and alas – that was unsuccessful.

Anyways – today I got:

1. 1980′s enamel ear rings. Don’t worry, I am going to clean those with rubbing alcohol before putting them on!

(Sorry for the quality of the picture – the writing above the earrings says – 1980′s pierced 2 – ) Yes, these cost me only 2 BUCKS!

2. Crocheted white shawl! I really really REALLY hope it’s hand-made ;)

I know my couch looks good wearing this :) I know my couch looks good wearing this I promise to take pictures wearing it MYSELF!

3. A Crochet Kit! Which I am not going to use the way it’s intended. I have finally decided that I have time to open an etsy shop, so some cool things are about to come :) This is some Victorian stocking pattern, which is just cool to see, because that’s vintage for sure!

4. Some free Star Wars! And a few Economists. This was for Sam. Star Wars were more of a joke, and the Economists were for him to see if he wanted to subscribe to that mag!

What did you thrift today???
