The first week back from summer break is always crazy. All the costumes,wigs and whatevers from PSST have to be dealt with. My outfits all week consisted of what I could wear that wouldn't get covered in wigs hair, sweat and I could rummage around and sort through lots of boxes. Spent one day brushing out wigs, another moving boxes, yet another checking in dry cleaning (all $1500 worth) and sorting costumes to send back where they came from. Ah, the glamorous life of show biz. And it rained every afternoon. All the shows have been cast, I had a design meeting this morning for the 3, yes, 3 dances I'm designing, and we start week 2. I did manage to get some thrifting in between the rain this weekend.
I got this sweet hat for $3 at the hospice store. I always buy hats, even if it's just for the trimmings.
Don't you think it goes well with the new to me fake fur coat I won on-line?
I'll be a trend for winter.
Check out the collar.
Dollar books and a 99cent tie. The 99cent sale at Slavation Army was still going on. The books are from The Dollar Tree
This jacket reminds me of Bella Q from Citizen Roesbud
I'll have to wait a couple of months to wear this skirt.
An almost brand new carry-on for $5!
Years ago I worked in a more office place and one of my co-workers used to dis me for buying second hand/thrift shop clothes. Her belief was that if I bought it "poor people" wouldn't be able to buy it. Her thinking was, I guess, that people with jobs should only shop for new stuff, because poor people couldn't afford to. I just thought she was a rude, snob and had probably never set foot in a thrift store ( some of them are huge) Has anybody else ever run into this from a co-worker or friend?
Wish me luck on the 3 dances. We're also doing As You Like It by some guy called William something or other.
