If you’ve been following this blog for awhile, you’ll notice that I have an uncanny knack for finding some of the coolest shoes.
Here are the thrift finds for December. This post will most likely be the last one on this site before the new year.
Keeping it real: I’ve had a lot of trouble with managing my time between my software development apprenticeship, thrift finds, and parenting. I’m a little sad that I haven’t been able to devote my time to the friendships in my life, especially the important ones, so here’s to understanding and making more time for each other in 2017.
I wish you all wonderful times and amazing memories! I’m unsure what I’ll be doing to ring in the new year, but it probably includes catching up on some sleep!
There’s not much more to say about the people that are dying lately other than “Bye, Felicia” to 2016. However, I need to post two things:
Tell me how much you love this art of Carrie Fisher as Leia from Alex Garant??
RIP. I still haven’t recovered from Bowie, and I don’t think I ever will.
Here’s a pictorial roundup of the items that I’ve found in December:
I wish this dress fit me! It’s a cool print that features squid from Modcloth. One of my local thrift haunts had a 50% off sale and you bet that I scooped this right up. Size 1x, which proves that designers can make stylish and cute clothes for every single body out there.
Now onto the other scores for this month!
These QualiCraft Casualets black mule shoes are at least as old as I am and are in pretty good shape. They fit, and I’m unsure if I’ll keep them even though they fit.
Everyone remembers the first time they appreciated a dress from Betsey Johnson and this one is right up there. Pics don’t do it any justice, and it’s got the 1980’s black label with the white stitching. In immaculate shape and it was only $6.49!! 1980’s winter acrylic knit sweater that I gave to a friend!
After much research, I have 99% confidence that this Kate Spade bag is authentic. It’s the style called Wellesley Byrd, and the only thing to note is that the top handle is missing. At $4.99, this was a steal!
See the end of this blog post for links that I found that were very helpful. Counterfeiting is a multimillion dollar industry that I don’t want to support, so I rarely buy big name brands because you just never know.
I’m elated that Santa brought me some goodies with these Valley glasses and a new brush set from Sigma Beauty. The Flat Kabuki F80 brush is a dream for any base makeup. Super blending and nearly airbrushed finish.
What are you looking forward to in the coming year?
I’m thankful for my wonderful friends, even with this exhaustive, time prohibitive schedule. It’s time to clone myself so I can do all the things!
Health and happiness some major goals in 2017.
