I have been doing my blog break for a while now and I have gotten so much done! Praise the Lord! I decided that I would do an update even though I will not have time to do another post before the month is out. I have a lot of studying, sewing, and song writing to accomplish.
But here is my outfit I am wearing today. Its 100% thrifted except for my shoes and stocking, jewelry, and glasses. Yes I finally have gotten glasses, for almost 20 years I did not need them, but now I needed them to be able to drive at night and see things a long distance away. I am still not used to them and its strange wearing them. But yes my sister says I look scholarly. :) They are brown frames and I tried to get a pair that brought more attention to my face than the glasses. Hopefully I accomplished that. :) Seems most people wear the square black frames these days, but they seem to bring more attention to your glasses than your face. So I did not go for that look. :)
The black dress was only $4.10 at my local thrift store, they were having a half off day on clothing. I was so excited! My friend Ginny over at A ladies resource blog says that it resembles the 1940's style of dresses. I agree with her! The fitted look of the dress and gathers on the shoulders I believe does resemble the 40's, but this is a merino brand target dress. I love the vintage inspired look.
Yes I am wearing those turquoise stockings again. Love them to compliment my necklace that was given to me and made by a dear friend.
I also was able to thrift this pair of sandals 2 weeks ago for only $.50!! Yes you heard right, only 50 cents! I wanted to share them because I am trying to figure out if I should paint them or not. I have always wanted black peep toe wedge sandals. These are tan, but I am not sure how to go about painting them, I am thinking not spray paint after reading that was bad for leather. I found a few blogs where they said a certain brand of paint was for leather shoes. I am not even sure if these are fake or real leather. If anyone has any ideas please do tell! ;)
Have a lovely rest of your day dear friends! I will post more about my music writing probably in April when I get a chance and more vintage dresses and other thrifted items I have bought recently for spring.
