Life

New Year, New Me? Nah…

I’ve got a great love/hate relationship with New Year’s going on. I love the fact that everyone around the world celebrates it and that fresh feeling of the new year. On the other hand, everyone is so quick to make resolutions to change things about them that maybe weren’t so bad.

My resolution is to donate more things and live with less…but other than that? Yep. Sticking with what I have going on. As is evident by this (not entirely without alcohol) photoshoot from NYE with my best gal pal:

Sister Time

Once in a while, when life is a little too much, my sister and I spend a whole weekend watching crappy TV and shopping. It’s the perfect fix for anything. Anything.

I love her lots. I also happen to love the thrift stores surrounding her house. Amazing!

Perfect 1950s green dress. A keeper, perhaps?

Another 1950s find, in a lighter green. 

1980s sparkles!

And…the best thing I have ever seen. 

You guys, I’m dying. 



Seriously considering keeping a couple of those. And to be honest, I was very on the fence about the sparkly 1980s dress, but my sister insisted it was a good find and that someone would like it. And you know what? She hasn’t steered me wrong yet. 


I‘m also taking it as a sign that this just happened to be on TV as I took photos:



One of our favorite movies. A perfect movie to watch while looking at some perfect dresses 🙂

Black Friday Hiding

Instead of shopping in retail stores on Black Friday, I chose (very wisely might I add) to hide away at a few estate sales over the weekend. They were all so empty! 
And I found some pretty unique things:
Looking up? In a polka dot dress.

Very excited about my new
1950s fur stole!

Beautiful yellow necklace.

Brown and yellow polka dot scarf.
It looks very much like a Fred Flintstone
tie here, but is very cute. I promise.

Timeless blue necklace.

I’m in love with these clip on earrings.

Avon locket sans chain.

And a cute lil’ sail boat pin.
Definitely not the best sales I’ve ever been to, but this weekend really gave me a chance to stock up on some accessories, which the shop could definitely use! Look for these in the store later this week.
