Thrifting Finds and More

As I told you in my previous post, I went thrift shopping on Valentine's Day with my fabulous friends ; )

I wanted to share with you my finds. My favorites would have to be the rings you see below. My mom is baffled as to why I like a ring with a skull on it, but my 15 year old brother thinks its cool so that's all that counts! I think they were both $5.

I love these butterfly earrings too ($4)...My friends decided to get each of us a patch with a random name on it (about 10 cents). I guess you had to be there to understand its hilarity. I like Susan.
The name means lily....like Like Lilly Vintage!!!
"Step 2: velcro heart on bears tummy." xD
The woman from the thrift store said
that this bag was bought in India!
I love the colors so much. It was only $8.
The contents of my new purse...
After my amazing thrift shopping trip, I went to a fancy dinner with my parents and brother. Here is what I wore...
(blouse, Forever 21; cardigan and heels,
Old Navy; skirt and belt, not sure; shoes, Old Navy;
vintage shoulder purse, grandmothers basement; tights, Target)

When I got home I helped myself to a hot pink cupcake!
My mom picked these up from Acme.
And before you ask, no, I was not drinking champagne!
Notice two cupcakes are gone. Thats what happens when you have a brother...

I hope you all had a lovely Valentines Day! If you did anything special let me know, I want to hear all about it! What do you guys think of the skull ring? I'm curious to hear your comments.
As always, xoxo Emily Anne

Lovin' the shoes you wore!

Yes you do belong in the 1920s, but in the best years, long before the great crash.

I don't usually wear earrings, but those butterfly ones are stunning. And so inexpensive! Sounds like you had a great day.

Kay said...

Aww thank you, of course I would love to exchange links.
I like the ring - it's not as harsh as the ones that are more three dimensional but it still has a toughness about it.
And I love your blue vintage bag, and your description of style in your about me. Probably the most accurate description of it I've ever seen!

Fun finds. My mother hates it when I find things with skulls--they baffle her as well.
