Style Spots: Clothe Yourself

Well, here we are; we've reached another Monday morning, but this one is special: It's Halloween! Do you have any fun plans for tonight? I still have to get my porch pumpkins (yikes!), but I have my fair trade candy all ready for the little ones. The only down side is, since we live in a two-family house and our place is the upper two floors, I either have to run up and down the stairs all night, or I might just grab a blanket and park myself on a chair on the porch.

This weekend went by in a flash for me. Friday was the only day I had time to do some thrifting. I went to one estate sale and then had to spend my Value Village Groupon by the end of that day. As a result, my haul is mostly clothing, but I scooped up some gorgeous vintage dresses that I love. Want to see?

I think this floral dress is my favorite, especially since it's 100% cotton.

And it comes with a little bow and pin on the shoulder.

This dress would look killer with a black belt and heels.

And I love the buttons up the side.

This Mendel sheath dress is really stunning.

Love the navy with the deep purple flowers.

Navy and cream, another good combo.

Plus, this wrap dress has cute, mod feathers.

This dress just doesn't photograph how it looks. The skirt is stunning because the pleats are different shades.

Don't you want this for a cute Christmas sweater?

And in case you didn't get the memo, the early '90s are back...big time. :)

I picked up this pleated skirt for me. High-waist ones are so fun to wear with a skinny belt and a textured top tucked in.

Another purse! I've grown quite the inventory of them, which should make my December shows go well.

I can never resist fabric, and those three purple wool ones go so well together.

And the one non-textile I picked up: a Descoware enameled cast iron skillet.

What goodies did you thrift this weekend?

  3. Some great finds, especially the first dress! My daughter got that early 90's memo but I am planning on ignoring it for now -those fashions did not suit me then so why would they now?

  5. I love that first dress most of all with the vibrant colours and then at the opposite end, I adore your skillet.

  6. Once again you have managed 'secondhand with style'. I particularly like the blue frock.

  8. I have been getting that descowear when I can. So much cheaper than the Le Crueset and just as great. Great blog. I just found you!
