Hello Blogland!! I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend!!! It is absolutely gorgeous weather-wise now. We had a terrible storm come through Saturday afternoon but now it’s a glorious day! No more hot and soupy weather I hope!
Friday was my off day and I had to go to town for some bloodwork. Of course, that meant stopping in at my 4 favorite thrifts!! I have to say I scored nicely all around!!!!
I’ve been looking for a new winter wool coat-preferably longer and vintage. What do I find at the World Mission Thrift?? A stunning wool 80’s coat that fit perfectly. The tag was gone so no idea what brand. It was missing a button that I found in the pocket. and the best of all??? It was $3!!!! It’s midi length and is a grey, purplish and black tweed.
But the coat gods weren’t through with me yet!! I stopped by the Rescue Mission and had a PMP (pee my pants) experience. I found a stunning Lord & Taylor cashmere/wool silk lined car coat in perfect condition AND my size. FOR $3 !!!! I found something similar at Lord & Taylors for $500!!!It’s so soft and comfy! It’s a stunning dark dark red. I’m thinking a leopard print scarf and hat will be perfect! I’m going to have it dry-cleaned and pressed.
Here’s the other non-clothing goodies I thrifted. Watch for the wicker purse on Make-over Monday this week!! It was damaged but only $1 and gets a re-do!
Now for the big excitement this weekend. It was the Maryland Poultry Festival here in town. I decided to go check it out. Unfortunately wasn’t able to stay long as the bad storms rolled in.
I picked up a couple of things at the yardsale/vendor portion of the festivities:
I wanted to bring home this adorable mini-pig but I knew Miss Kae and the hubster would be a tad put-out!!!
I completely forgot to take outfit photo’s until today. Oh well-you didn’t miss anything!! Somehow I managed to thrift three teal cardigans. I gave one to my friend Andrea and am keeping this one. The other is a different shade and longer and is still on the fence as to keeping it.
I am so glad cooler weather is here!! It’s invigorated me style-wise!! I can start wearing some of the cool stuff I thrifted this summer!
Don’t forget to stop back tomorrow for Make-Over monday to see what I’ve done with the wicker purse!!
