My outfit for today

Hello everyone!

I thought I would share with you all another frugal outfit/ thrift store find and a beautiful peice of clothing made by my dear sister. I am wearing this today for church, cooking and baking, which we did this morning for sunday dinner. We are having some friends who are moving over along with some other friends. So this was a practical and comfy outfit for the day.

The sweater is 100% merino wool and it was only I think $4.00 at a thrift store about 2 years ago when I purchased it. I love it and I wear it with this skirt throughout the winter and fall.

I also wear this 1950's skirt made by my dear sister with 2 different white blouses I have aquired from the thrift store and my sister's closet in the summer and spring. :) I also have two white jackets/blazers that look nice with this as well as a black sweater. I love the 1950's look and circle skirts are my favorite type of skirt to wear for modern wear. I love the bold floral print, which we found in PA at a quilting and fabric store that is run by amish and menonite ladies. I love this store and they have great sales and high quality cotten fabrics. This one was on sale and Beth bought it to make me this skirt for my 18th birthday last year. The belt is the same white belt I purchased at the thrift store that I have worn in previous post, that was only $1.00 at the thrift store. I wear it with so many outfits, you just can't go wrong with it!

The shoes are a black pair I have had for about 5-6 years that were purchased the DSW Shoe wearhouse, they are expensive sometimes, but these were on sale and I am thinking only around $30.00, which is expensive for me. But I have gotten alot of use out of them and will be using them for many years to come. I use them for regency and civil war reenacting as well. I want to get period dance slippers for both sometime, but theses will have to do for now. My skirts are so long you do not see them really anyway even when dancing.

God bless and I hope you all have a refreshing and beautiful Sunday in the Lord's house.

In Christ,

Thank you! I will tell her to come over to my blog and see all your encouraging comments! She is very talented and says that I am her doll and she loves to dress me up! :)

She used a vintage 1950's circle skirt pattern, so it is a repro of the real 1950's circle skirts. I just love it!

Oh wow! How wonderful! It is so rare to find vintage patterns.

You are lucky to have such a sister that dresses you up like a doll. You get free clothes! ;)
