Spontaneously went to a garage sale on Saturday while waiting for my family and picked up a load of stuff. The lady was getting rid of her vintage items and I came at the right time. I could hardly contain my excitement when I bought all six items for fifteen bucks (ok and 50 cents). Wouldn't you be excited too?
Moschino Cheap & Chic vintage cropped "joker" blazer, $5-The lady recommended this jacket to me and at first I was thinking it was a lil crazy, but it grew on me. She said she would have to charge me more for this one because it was a special item. I didn't bother to bargain because the jacket alone probably retailed for 1k.
Silk & velvet "band" vest, $2.50- she purchased it in the 80s at some boutique at the Beverly Center.
And more sequins (can you tell I love sequins?), sequin dress, $1- Apparently someone gave her this dress and she never had a chance to wear it. I'm going to have to figure out a way to make it less trashy-looking.
This wasn't part of the garage sale, but I purchased it two weeks ago from F21. It's kind of bold n' Blair Waldorf-looking, but I loved how they used a zipper to form the bow.
I've been trying to organize better this summer and have finally gotten around to placing our professional wedding photos chronologically into an album. Yes, its been more than two years since the day of our wedding.
Several weeks ago, I saw the divider bar for your closet on sale at Bed Bath Beyond. I ran out and bought two rods and it has saved me ample closet space. It's not easy sharing a closet, so you have to make the best of it!
On another note, I can now shamelessly say that I have posted my "services" (stylist, art teacher & photographer) to the people I know on Facebook to see if I can make it a side job. My friends have been encouraging me to at least become a stylist on the side. I always feel like it's wrong to get paid while doing something I love, but I suppose that's the beauty in it.
