Late 70's Christian Dior Lace Skirt-I'm wanting all shades of cocoa for summer, so I may have squealed when I spotted this skirt on the rack.
80's Grid Silk Top-I have a habit of picking up these little tops in every thrift store I visit. I have this crazy idea that everything will eventually be made of polyester and I'll never find a cute print in a breathable fabric again.
Late 70's Halston Matte Jersey Maxi Skirt-The original minimal.
Early 80's Bill Blass Check Separates-I'm loving my matching tops and bottoms. I'm thinking about having the skirt hemmed short.
90's Express Diamond Pattern Skirt in Forest Green-I have a feeling I'll be wearing this a lot in the fall with tights.
80's Polka Dot Peplum Dress-Couldn't have asked for a more spot on piece for spring 2012.
Late 60's red silk jacket from Saks Fifth Avenue-I was crossing fingers, legs, and toes in the dressing room that this would fit me.
For a long time I had to turn a blind eye to home stuff when I was at the flea market or thrift store. Now I have to bolt pass the racks of clothes and concentrate on buying things for our new (but very old) house.
Well, until this week, when I knew my local thrift store was having their big kick off event for the new season. They stock the store from top to bottom with fresh donations.
As you can see, I'm still obsessed with prints, especially checks and grid patterns. I bought a couple more pieces, but they are already getting cleaned up. I'm particularly over-the-moon about a suit from the 1960's. Both pieces are made from the heaviest white silk shantung, with the dress having a jewel encrusted v-neckline. I feel a little Jackie O in it, can't wait to show you guys.
