recently thrifted

when it came time to photograph my recent thrifting purchases, I noticed most of them where purses & cases - so I decided to try something a little different than what I usually do for the photographs. which is how I ended up accidentally mooning the neighbors trying to set the camera timer in a short red polka dot square-dancing dress:

Great shots. And the train case! My mom had one of those that she used to hold all our toiletries when we went on vacations.

Very cute pics. You have a great style! BTW, my cross-stitch naked bag arrived the other day. Thanks!! Now, I just have to find a place to use it where I won't shock everybody. :)

Love those skirts and bags--my favorite bag is the top one. Or maybe the patchwork, or maybe..... Cute stuff!

I love them all and I love the vintage feel to your photos. If I had to choose my favorite I would choose the first dress and the red cosmetic case!

De-lurking to say that I really enjoyed today's photos. I love vintage things, but don't always have the right things for the 'full effect'. Your photos are very nicely done!

Rebecca said...

Oh my gosh, I love your blog!
Now I want to go to my local thrift store... they close in 59 minutes.
Hmm, wish I had your legs!

Kate said...

Where on earth do you thrift? How can you find so many wonderful vintage dresses and accessories? And do you really have so many cute shoes to match? I feel like the stores around my area are picked clean.
