Ah thrifting... an inexpensive, but fun way to spend the day shopping.
A couple of days ago I spent the day with my neighbor for dollar tacos and then following up with thrift stores. In my town, I didn't expect there to be a whole lot going on in the way of clothing in the thrift stores-- I have found several really great books that are now happily restored and sit in their places on my shelves.
Boy was I glad to be wrong.
The Polka Dot Dress
The label is from "Rare Editions"... a quick google yielded the website: www.rareeditions.com
It's apparently made for little girls, but it fit like a glove-- so I guess that means I have the figure of a young girl-- I guess having little breasts can be somewhat of a good thing *rimshot*
Probably the best, and most inexpensive of this haul are the shoes.
I have been coveting a pair like these for what feels like years... but in fact may have only been a couple of months, hehe. The brand is New Port News, and I was completely shocked at the pristine condition, but mostly for the fact that these beauties came in relatively my size. The company's sizes must run small, because they fit superb for a 6 1/2 when I normally wear a 5 to 6 narrow.
You ready to know how much these were?! ...
I have one other piece I was proud to haul in but not showing because when I bought it I had a plan to reconstruct it; that'll have to wait till a Creepy Craft Crusade!
P.S. the necklace is self-made, of course, not that it's really all that impressive! Just strung beads =P
