My Fair Lady

Dress: Envy, $20 // Shoes: Vintage, thrifted, $2 // Belt: Vintage, thrifted, $1  // Headband: Urban Outfitters, $5 

The other evening I ran into Salvation Army to look for a couple of specific items. It was supposed to be a "quick thrift trip," but I immediately realized that, for me, that's a blatant oxymoron. While it wasn't as brief as intended, it was efficient and moderately successful. As is so often the case with thrifting, I didn't find what I was looking for, but I did find some great stuff including a vintage lion belt and some suede mary janes. I knew a ladylike look was in order.


Sorry for the yucky indoor pictures! Sadly, I think these will be commonplace throughout the winter. The short days coupled with a full-time job (plus a commute) makes it hard to get good shots. Not to mention, it's freezing outside! At the very least, I will try to improve my indoor picture-taking skills.


On a lighter note, the LOLA Giant sale is this weekend! Here are the details:

Van Go (715 New Jersey)
Saturday, December 11th, 12 - 7
Sunday, December 12th, 12 - 5

As we count down the final days leading up to the sale, I have a few more local, handmade items to feature!

Because I am a shameless dork, I am tying in the Narnia movie out on Friday with the discovery of your belt. It can't be coincidence! :-)

I can never find cute shoes when thrifting. Maybe I will hit up the salvation army tomorrow lol.
