I thought I would give you a brief respite from the Disney layouts. But don't worry...they'll be back tomorrow! Until then, check out how I rock polka dots, hot pink & houndstooth. And a vintage/second hand gold "Christmas balls" necklace! Ooh yeah!!
I took these photos in the parking lot behind TM. Yep, I'm classy that way. In fact, I think my last WTW post was conceived in a parking lot as well....hmmm. Anyhoo, that giant pile of snow behind me isn't naturally occurring or anything! Ha! We've got a lot of snow in the past couple of weeks, but not that much! It's the results of the plows clearing that parking lot. I thought it was a good backdrop....to impress my southern friends!
Now I didn't get a cute close up of my accessories outside - cause my butt was beginning to freeze off - so I grabbed one in the car before leaving the parking lot. And in one of them you can kind of see up my nose. So I deleted that. Which means you are left with...
Someone please explain to me why some shirts are lint attractors. This is a simple cotton shirt. I don't understand. And my cute bangles that I bought at VV with Nicole. Speaking of Value Village & Nicole...
You know how sometimes when thrift shopping you find that one terrifying item. That you just cannot believe exists, and was given life on this earth? This sweater/dress thing is it, my friend. In fact, I don't think I will ever get it's glory out of my head. I believe it is one of those handmade rarities that make it into the thrift store aisles. Those giant buttons? Hand-painted. Some of them even have thread stitched through the "button holes" for an added touch. And the little buttons are real buttons. There are easily 40 - 50 sewn over the entire thing. And yes it was stiff, and shapeless, and I really really wish I had looked at the price tag!!
This item DID NOT come home with either of us....unless Nicole snuck back while I was in the change room....hmmm...Maybe this isn't the last we'll see of the Button Dress From Beyond!
p.s. I will never forget the look on the lady's face who caught us in action, taking these shots. For a moment there she thought we were seriously enamoured with this monstrosity. That was a precious sight!
