YOU GOT THAT WHERE?
Over Thanksgiving Break, I went to the By-the-Pound store in Charlotte, NC with MTW. I got 14 pounds of stuff for $21. Here's it all piled on the floor.
|Big old pile of stuff|
While I was getting it all ready to wash, I noticed I'd bought pieces that made outfits. "Hmm, maybe I should make outfit posts of what can be found second hand" Here's outfit #1: Vintage Sears a-line skirt and Vintage Jessica's Gunnies, which is part of Gunnie Sac/Jessica McKlintock
"Polo? I got your Polo right here lady"
Both pieces are Polo Ralph Lauren. The pants are brand new, still had the store tag. The sweater is a wool/linen blend. Who's says you can't find nice quality clothes at a thrift store? Not this girl. Both of these outfit probably cost around $5. One of the reasons I decide to do You Got That Where is some people don't believe me when they ask me where I got an outfit. I get one of two reactions: Horror (I wear dead people's clothes) or shock( you got that where?) As Bella Q says: SHOP SECOND HAND FIRST!!!!!!
Have a lovely weekend!!!!!!

VACATION MODE HAS KICKED IN
After the home improvements, decorating for Christmas and doing some yardening(yard work/gardening) my style awesomeness have taken a back seat
I was downtown the other day mailing cards and stopped in to the Hope Thrifts store.
Roxie got a new hat.
I was rummaging through the patterns. Most of them were 80's-90's, but look what I found.......
Enjoy whatever you do for whatever holiday you do.

WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR CHRISTMAS CRAP FROM?
I get mine from all over the place. I'm not one to follow this years trend in decorations, so my stuff has been collected since the mid-1970's.
FIRST UP: NEW AND GIFTED
SECOND UP: HOMEMADE
Tree skirt made from a sheet. Stencils were in an old issue of Martha Stewart Living.
THIRD UP: RESCUE OTHER PEOPLES REJECTS
