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

Someone took along time to make this pillow.
|Break dancing Santa|
|Santa's a dare devil!|
|Santa decanter and his friend|
AND A 3-IN-ONE: GIFTED, THRIFTED AND VINTAGE
As the Borg say "Enjoy your holiday, resistance is futile"
PS: There maybe one more Christmas post.

WARNING!!!!! CHRISTMAS CONTENT!!!!!!!!
Well, I'm finally in the Christmas Spirit. Thanks in part to the Menopausal Supermodel. She puts Christmas trees in her bathroom! Go check her out.
Let's start with outside......
A couple of years ago I decided to divide my ornaments up between 3 trees: the big main one in the living room, a Santa one in the den, and a Christmas Around the World one in the dinning room. First up: Christmas Around the World
That's one trees down and two to go. Off to watch 2-hours of Grimm!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
