Ummm, ok. So, the last few times I've been shopping for work, it seems like more and more is going into the "mine!" pile. These earrings I talked about here and also this purse:
I would also like to add when I went to take the pic I noticed the paint brush in the vase, but decided to leave it for artistic purposes. However, I did remove the green dental floss that someone had meticulously wound throughout my fake yellow flowers. Hmmfph.
The purse was in the expensive locked up case in the thrift store. It was $10 and it is marvellous. A rainbow of yarn puffs adorn the top.
There is embroidered patch things on both sides as well as a Made in Italy wine bottle charm.
It has ethnic velvet or something rather material covering it.
Inside their is a little embroidered parrot with a tag "an original by Toni Cotton Palm Beach"
I really couldn't tell how old it is by looking at it... It is MINT condition and just wasn't ringing massive 'vintage' bells. I found one on Etsy that looks much more toned down and states it's a 60s item.
It is now my fancy go out purse.
Also, I have a leopard print velvet blazer---shown better here--that is sort of like my easy go to, add to any outfit to make it better jacket. Boring outfit??? Add the velvet leopard blazer to cover the boring up! I get so many compliments on it. It was bought cheap retail many years ago.
Well, as usual, I just came across the BETTER VINTAGE VERSION. Have you ever noticed this phenomenon? There is a modern version of something and it's good... But, then you finally run across the vintage version and you realize you didn't know what good was!
Now my new to me 'nother velvet animal print:
All jewelery is secondhand, as well as the boots, which are from Etsy. Dress is second-hand and fist seen here, where I really like it, but I am NOT liking it now. This may move from the "mine" pile to the the "list" pile. Some progress, I guess.
Keeping both animal print velvet blazerzzzzzzz!! Hooking up to Bella's secondhandfirst link-up! Edited to link up to SpyGirl Pattern Mix! and Happiness at Mid-Life!
Love & Light,

P.S. How long are you legitimately allowed to keep your room messy after you move and still say, "Excuse the mess! I've just moved!"
