thrifty finds.

this weeks thrifty finds come from a new thrift store adventure.
a few months ago, on the quest for the perfect bike shop, the hubs discovered a consignment shop that i had never heard of. well, the catch is that he couldn't really remember the name, or exactly where it was, he just knew that he saw it. gotta love that man. so for months now every time we were in that area of town we searched without any luck.
well i just found it! i wasn't even looking. isn't that how it always goes? and oh is it ever glorious!
anyway this is what my $4 got me.

this little dress is about as sweet as can be. it's vintage. it's handmade. and it doesn't fit. isn't that fantastic? i am having a bit of a moral dilemma... do i alter it to fit me? or do i leave it alone in it's perfect condition and let someone with a micro-waist love it as much as i want to? oh and did you notice the adorable buttons that go all the way down the back?

i love linen. i love pencil skirts. the only thing i love more than a linen / pencil skirt combo is a bright yellow linen pencil skirt. i got this for a mardi gras costume, but you can bet your bottom that you will see it on me again and again and again!


  1. sweet scores! The fabric on that dress is to die for!

  2. i know! i fell in love with the fabric. what should i do? i may bring it next time i see you for your expertise!

  3. i say tailor for you and let's where our matching pencil skirts together!!!
