What In The World Have I Been Doing?

14 Nov

Well, I will tell ya…

I have been extremely busy scoping out treasures for my Etsy shop lately, drove an hour and a half yesterday towards Atlanta for a huge estate sale, came back with some excellent stuff!

I really haven’t been eating anything too tasty recently. I did however try some moonshine {only in the South} at a restaurant, which was weird, but enjoyable and…NO…I did not get drunk-fied and no I will not be constructing a homemade still on my property anytime soon, but I’d certainly drink it again if it becomes available.

I ran/walked my first Run or Dye 5K and didn’t “dye”! Thas good.

I scored a Carol Bennett Liberty House Dress at the Goodwill…

I got some cute jewelry at Rue 21 for 2 bucks a piece.

And last but not least, I have been wearing this hat on my head every night while I sleep! What…its warm. My husband says I look like the guy from Fat Albert that says Obee Kaybee or a jelly fish. In fact, I am wearing this hat as we speak.photo-707

So that about sums it up. Hope you have been having as much fun as I am lately. If not, start now.

Louis Vuitton Checkerboard: Get the Look For Less!

7 Jun

 It was as all about the checkerboard pattern at Louis Vuitton’s latest show for Spring/Summer 2013.

So yesterday when I was browsing the dresses at the ‘ole thrift store, I came upon this fabulous dress! Look at that checkerboard my little  trendy chickens. Its as if Louis himself made this number. {of course, he didn’t}

 Super bright color pops, vibrant flowers, goddess motif and of course the Louis Vuitton inspired checkerboard  pattern on the sides.

 You may be thinking, my gosh there is a lot going on with this sucker. Well,  you’re right, but that’s exactly what I like about it. It’s trendy with a little unique flair thrown in for fun. Don’t be scared of the flair, girl!

The best part was of course the price $3.50.

Sometimes finding interesting items at the thrift can be a little overwhelming.

{Here’s a tip}

When looking through the packed in racks, first take a quick scan for interesting shapes, textures or patterns to see if anything catches your eye, it’s a huge time saver.

Good Luck on your quest for checkerboard, thank goodness, it’s an easy spot.

Just because we don’t live in a castle doesn’t mean we can’t be a “Lady”.

Check out this Downton Abbey inspired dress I found at TJ Maxx for $24.99.
