I'm a tad bit excited about these photos :) Victoria from Little Bird Blue asked me to send in a picture of my favorite thrift find for a feature she's doing.
I knitted a bow!! See it? I'm very proud of my little pink and yellow creation. I was just in a creative mood, so I knitted a square, tied yellow string around it, and attached a bobby pin to the back. Viola!
Well, here it is! My favorite thrift find. There's a consignment shop in town that I love. When I first spotted this dress there is was $50, which was just too much for me to spend on a used dress. Sigh...
But THEN, when I came back again a while later, there it was, sitting on the sale rack for $11! They had forgotten to mark down the price on the tag, so it still said $50. But I knew that it was on sale...I think the dress knew that it was meant for me :)
There's a really cool craft center near my house - it's got all kinds of work by local artists for sale. And that's where these pictures were taken.
It was fun to get all girl-ified with pink lipstick and such. Oh and might I add that these heels, if I remember correctly, were about $17. Oh yeah. It takes me like 10 minutes to get them on because they're a half size too small... but that's ok. It's worth it :)
I hung out with my friend Kylan today and we went to an antique store (LOVE! I am going back there when I get some money...) and then to an Asian food store. We got all kinds of adorable Asian candy and some kimchi ramen. It was awesome.
I hope all of you are enjoying summer! Have a wonderful weekend.
P.S. Thanks to Maria for my cool new blog design!
