Vintage bar cart. $10. Thrifted at Goodwill, McKinney TX.
Sometimes I like to pour myself a double of whiskey, watch old episodes of Mad Men, and lament the fact that I am not a sexy vixen in a wiggle dress making the men at my ad agency pant with desire.This 1960's bar cart will help keep my fantasy alive. And in case you're wondering, I drink for medicinal purposes only, because I am a lady. Stop looking at me like that.
Early 1900's dress form. Thrifted at some random antique mall in Dallas, TX.
Once upon a time I planned to open at Etsy shop selling my vintage wares. I designed a cute logo for the shop, tagged and organized all my stuff, and thrifted this slightly wonky early 1900's dress form to display things on. Then I realized that hey, opening an Etsy shop is a lot of work. So I put it on hold until the fall. In the meantime, this dress form leans against a wall in my living room, naked, possibly tipsy, whining about being unemployed.
Leather and silver loafers. $3. Thrifted at The Purple Thrift Store, McKinney TX.
Last week I wore heels four days in a row. I wanted to die. I don't know how some of you waltz around in your four inch stilettos all the time, but I felt like I was being tortured and wanted to chop my feet off. It was that bad. So I was happy when I thrifted these comfy loafers last week. I love the stitching and silver tassels. And that fact that they're flat to the floor.
