What I wore; Mouse Belt!Monday, October 24, 2011
dress - vintage
belt - vintage / gift from my mom
tights - target
boots - thrifted
This is by far one of my favorite dresses! I found it at Goodwill for $2. It's kind of night gown-y especially since has a zipper in the front (at least it has buttons that cover that!) but I'm clearly a firm believer that a belt can fix anything. Speaking of belts, how precious is my little mouse belt?! I found it when we went on the annual "antique til you can't walk anymore because it's Kaylah's birthday" trip. I love belts with animals on them, I wish I could find more of them.
On an unrelated to this outfit note;
I'm still on a thrift high from this weekend. Kevin and I hit up two estate sales. The first one was a bust, the house was packed with people and you could barely move. Despite being discouraged we headed to the next one where we actually had to wait in line to enter the house. (I know that's common in more populated areas but I've never seen it around here) The wait was so worth it. I got thirty (30!!!!) new pieces of GORGEOUS vintage clothing. This lady had amazing style. I was eavesdropping on some folks in front of me while we waited in line and apparently the woman could no longer take care of herself and had to be put in a nursing home. I wish it wouldn't be completely creepy to send her letter (not that I even have her address...) telling her how thankful I am that I was able to raid her closets (there was literally at least 7 of them!) I can't wait to start washing everything up today.
Hope you're having a great Monday!
