Finds of the Week 11.24.15

I’ve been getting up earlier every morning.

Stress can do that to you but I also think that it’s my body’s way of trying to appropriate the schedule that I had last year when I was working on the Google Express project.

I was assigned to Raley’s/Nob Hill and needed to get there before 7am, driving from Palo Alto to Los Gatos. Not exactly too far but it meant that I had to wake up no later than 5:45am. For a recovering night owl like me, it wasn’t easy!

I like to do stuff in the mornings, which leads me to this post. The Salvation Army thrift store in Hayward can be quite fruitful.

I’m so glad that I walked over to this black dress! There was something interesting about it but I was lost in thought and thrilled that I scored some BRAND NEW vintage 90’s blush pink platform Jack Purcell Converse sneakers.

I’ll keep this dress for my personal collection, as it’s an All Saints! It’s a size 6 and fits a bit loosely but a dress clip will definitely fix that. Their sizing is interesting as I have a couple of other dresses in their size 6. Guess what? They all fit very differently!

  This dress is a piece of work and I love it!

I joked with the sales associate that the loop in front is a napkin ring for Thanksgiving and she and a customer genuinely laughed. This is a brand that I’ve never heard of from Asia. It might be a cheapie, but here’s the thing.

The jersey material is QUITE HEAVY and OPAQUE and it’s cut absolutely beautifully. Too bad I didn’t have this dress for my Halloween costume this year. I’ll have to take pics of it on because this dress is really something.

  

Fighting Eel – Made in Paradise

This dress is so fun! It’s very flattering on, even though I had visions of Helen Roper as I slipped it over my tank top. If you know me at all, you know that I abhor dressing rooms. Usually I can put clothes over my form fitting whatever I’m wearing and can gauge the fit accordingly.

I adore the print, it’s metaphysical and reminds of a Phoenix all at once. A lovely find that I’ll layer for the coming winter.
   I bring you, without further adieu, a brand new pair of deadstock 90’s platform Jack Purcells! Converse. Amazing, and I would surely keep them IF THEY FIT. However, they’re a size 7.5, boo hiss.

These will be going on eBay by Sunday for sure, if you’re interested.
