I wore this outfit on March 16th to go to class and to go thrifting....
The jacket is a Martha B. from Marshalls (between 5-6 years old).
My favorite Jimi Shirt from the men's section at Target (7 years old).
The belt is made from Indian silk and it was a present from my friend
and co-worker, Kamla!!!
My Jeanstar jeans
(The tag says made in Kenya, I never read it before!!!)
from Walmart or Marshalls (very old).
Ana sandals from Marshalls (very old as well).
Rampage purse, thrifted at the Salvation Army in
Ft. Lauderdale about 8 years ago.
Bracelets from Dots and Steinmart.
Rings from a local Brazilian store.
All necklaces courtesy (gifts) of my dearest friend, for the last 17 years, Luz!!!!
We bought most of these necklaces together at The Limited in Lower Manhattan back
in the mid 90's and she gave them to me when she came to visit us about 5
Earrings from a local Indian store.
Birthmarks (my friends used to call them, my
vampire marks) a gift from birth parents!
The close up is from the lovely and funny Sarah (From Misfits)!!!
I know that you are having problems commenting on blogs but I know you
will read this!!!
By the way our camera has a dirt inside the lenses;
so all of my photos have this particular dirt on it!
It's not the shirt and it's not my nipple!!!!!!!!
Here are some of the other extraordinaries items I got from my Salvation Army store, from Thriftarella's and from the animal rescue Thrift Store...
Three skirts and black and white purse!
This lovely lace skirt is Arden B. and I saw it at my Salvation Army store
for about 2 weeks! I finally got it when it was half price!!
This is a Regina Kravitz, New York skirt and has a lovely ruffle
and a bit of discoloration but I did not care because I can always
disguise these few imperfections!
A planet Gold skirt, made in India.
It suppose to be hand wash
but I just put it the washer on special!
I'm in love with the lace!
This bag does not have a name tag but I thought the pattern
was very mid-century inspired and I couldn't
let it go for half price (paid $2.50).
Marvellous variety of goodies, isn't??
I think the tag says: Swaui and it's made in the USA!!!
Sadly you don't see many Made in the USA tags on clothes anymore!
Its a little big on me but the print and the sleeves details are so beautiful!!
This short sleeves cardigan is from A. Byer, California and its also
Made in The good USA!!!!!
Love the pearl-like buttons.
It's going to be ironed very well before I'll use it because this is how it looks after
its been washed and in the drying rack. Younger daughter already wore it!!!
This brand of jackets always has this message on the inside of their jackets.
I saw this same jacket at Marshalls and Steinmart about 4 years ago.
I believe it was about $40.00 and I got it for $4.50!!!!
Skulls, flowers and nice rustic looking bottoms!!!
Charter Club, cotton, made in India, pink shirt!!!
Cotton, pink, made in India what else but utter
love can this garment inspire!!!!
Finally my other love--accessories!
The bangles have no tags but they are yellow,
gold and red, need to say no more.
All necklaces are handmade in The Philippines and
had been at the store for about a month.
I kept looking at them all this time but my
small shopping budget did not allow me to get them until now!
