YEAH! IT'S FRIDAY!!
And it's NOT raining. Maybe it will be a non-raining weekend and I can go outside. I've been feeling like a hermit. The rain keeps me inside way too much.
I wore black and white on Tuesday for no reason. The skirt and belt are thrifted and the tank top and cardi are from The Avenue.
I knew you'd all like the Frida-fied Barbie. Twas tres easy to made. 50cent yard sale doll, about this much fabric and my favorite Frida outfit. You can do one, you know you can! Go on, I dare ya!

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 60
We're staying south of the boarder this week. How sad that this one only has one eye. The eyes look like decals and I guess the right one peeled off. Made of plastic.
Because you're all nuts for Frida Kahlo, I'm re-posting this doll I made my BFF for her birthday. I used a yard sale Barbie that was dressed like a mermaid.

FIRST WEEK, DONE!!!!!!
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.
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.

Continuing last weeks doll, another cute Mexican lady. She's made of plastic and I love her outfit, the hat is sweet.
I got the 2 lots of dolls I won at an on-line auction, one lot had 19 dolls for $19! I may need another cabinet for them.
And I now have 37 followers. Thanks to all of you for that.

NOT A $3 OUTFIT
I wore this today to go the the Convocation and free lunch. The dress is Jessica Simpson, I like it so much I went back a couple of weeks later and bought the same dress is orange! I've never done that before. The t-shirt is from J. Jill and the leggings are Target, sandals are Ecco and the bag is from Old Navy via the thrift store. I need to find an orange t-shirt to wear with the other dress. I like sundresses but don't want half my bra and all my skin out there getting all sunburned. You can't see it be I wear #50 sunscreen. I will be having a post shortly showing you all what's in the cabinet. I swear you guy s are nosier than I am. Stay tuned!
ps: I just won 2 lots of weird dolls on an auction site....................

SUNDAY, MONDAY THE MEETINGS START
Yep, on Monday all the meeting for fall semester start. Luckly, because I'm "staff", I really don't have to go to any of them. I do go to the convocation that the President has tomorrow morning. Yesterday, we hit a couple of charity shops. The Sallies was having a back to school sale....everything was 99cents! Sadly I only found 2 things.
A new dress. It not black, it's dark blue and made of rayon. And cost $6.
That cabinet next to me is my Cabinet of Wonder, AKA Shelves Full Of Crap. I got it at World Market, and maybe one of these days I'll show you what's in it.
