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!

Boots: Corso Como $6 – Steeple People

Dress: Anthropologie – $15 – Clothes Mentor

Scarf: Thirfted back in my NYC days

So here you have it, my very inexpensive, but fun Christmas outfit! Thrifting will never be  substituted by shopping in my world!

Happy Monday!

Upcycling a Thrifted Cardigan

Remember this number?

It came from Goodwill Outlet along with other thrift/vintage finds. When I saw it, I immediately thought of a DIY I could use this for!

I did share some of the crochet pieces that I was working on with you last Friday, and today I am finally ready to reveal the final product! I hope you like it ;)

After I crocheted all the pieces, it was time to put them on the cardigan. Pinning is the best way to go here :)

And a better view of the back:

And the front:

I promise to publish a separate outfit post featuring this DIY, as soon as the temperatures here drop below 90 degrees ;)

Crochet of the Day and $1 Books!

I am working on another crochet project, that is connected with yesterday’s post about Wednesday’s thrift finds. Are you confused yet? Hehe, anyways, stay tuned for next weeks posts, I have at least 3 DIYs planned for this weekend!

So here is what I’ve been working on today:

I figured I might as well attach the crochet patterns for those of you who share my addiction :)

And here is this one:

I got these patterns off of some Russian crochet web sites, simply because I find them better than the american ones. I love patterns vs description, if you know what I mean!

So I hope you are all excited for next week’s posts now! Don’t forget to subscribe if you haven’t yet!

I also wanted to share some of the books I got today. I love going to the central library on Nicolette Mall here in downtown Minneapolis, there is a little store between a Dunn Brothers and the restrooms, where they sell “officially withdrawn” books. And I got some pretty shabby chic ones today ;) I also got one on vintage sewing! That’s right up my ally!

I am really excited about those books, especially because all of them cost $1 each, much cheaper than that Shabby Chic book that I saw at Target for $20! Talk about savings!

I hope I intrigued you enough to come check out my posts next week (as you know I don’t blog on weekends anymore, I hope you understand!) I do take pictures for the future posts and actually write posts on the weekends!

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!

My Vintage Collection

Today’s post is fully dedicated to my vintage collection, and since there are many many different things in the collection, I decided to make it into a 2 parter! No, I am not cheating, I have plenty to blog about, but I feel like I shouldn’t tell-all right away!

1. This is a vintage red coat, two pockets, belonged to my Grandma. How do I

know it’s vintage? Well, it was made in a country that doesn’t exist anymore – Yugoslavia.

 

 

Today is the day I wish I wasn’t a size 2! ┬áStill ROFLing at myself for saying that, but anyways…

2. This is a very interesting piece, a vest-like coat, two pockets, this too is big for me, but cute nevertheless!

Now I didn’t take a picture of the bottom dress, but it was a brand new light blue short sleeved cotton dress, if you look close enough, you can see the tag hanging from the bottom!

 

 

3. This is a suit (jacket and skirt) made in Finland, the jacket has a light stain on it, and the skirt has a couple of places where the thread has been pulled out, but that can be easily fixed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. This is a handmade black jacket, the material is similar to the one they use to make H&M jackets. Of course I had to style it with my recently made lace flower brooch!

5. And the last one for today is a teal colored cardi. Also from a non-existant country!

Nice nails, I know! Thank you!

Anyways, more to come tomorrow, including some purses and jewelry! I will also show you how to wear all these pieces in one of the future posts!

Love and lace flowers!
