Threw this on last night for a last minute and late night trip to the local bar with a friend (ooh i made a tongue twister, no?!). I NEVER wear these shoes. Everytime I do I fall, or almost fall. They are still one of my favorite pairs of shoes though and get mucho attention (most Bebe shoes do). The only other pair of bebe pumps that i have, which I wore in a old post, are much more suited for walking.
@Alicia (Inny Vinny) you were so right about these jeans! They are too tight! I think I may sell them soon (although I could stand to lose a few pounds)...tight jeans just aren't my thing.
This is the last week that I will be working for the Elementary School, now that Summer School is over. Looking forward to a week off of sleeping late and thrifting before I begin working at my Mother's daycare full time.
I found this cute vintage 90's GAP ditsy floral/liberty print/grunge mini dress (whatever you want to call it). Its on ebay for $5 starting bid and I wouldn't think it would go higher then $10. I saw one similar on Cali Select not too long ago, or was it Treasure Chest, hmmmm?
Is it just me or is it not completely laughable that some people would pay ridiculous amounts of money for items that you can find in almost any thrift store (although I must admit I have seen some things on Cali Select that I would kill for but just not pay $150 for... lol) Don't get me wrong I really like Rumi and her blog, but some people are such groupies.
WOOHOO! MY FIRST RANT!
edit: I have added the link to my ebay page under the "about me" section for now and future reference. Now I am off to re-learn how to do proper links and make my blog pretty. Its been a long time since Tech class in High School.
a slight sting grabs my attention. look down to find THREE big ass mosquitos biting my leg at once. swat and run away from this area close to the woods. oh well maybe some other time on this rusted plow. when its not dusk and mosquitos aren't out for blood. no more outfit posts at dusk around my house for sure.
see i intended on clear shots as well, but the "shoot" was cut short...damn mosquitos. really wanted to show this old denim button down crop top!
*EDIT: I want to do something special for everyone who stops by the blog so I will take 10% off of any of the American Apparel items I have on Ebay if you mention that you saw it on the blog! Currently there is a pair of mineral wash denim runner shorts, a navy pique romper, and the shorts listed above. I think I will be adding the shiny bodysuit from the previous post I ordered because it does not fit me properly.
If you haven't noticed by now we pretty much reside on a farm, or at least my Dad tries his hardest to make it one. Complete with a catfish pond (featured in prior post), a corn field, a pea field, green patches, tomatoes, squash, and my favorite of all these lovely plum trees. The plums did really wonderful this year, the tree has never looked this full. Can you believe this tree grew from a small branch of an old plum tree?! I swear its the truth. The ladder is for my mother who likes to get the ones from the top. Cannot wait to taste her homeade jelly from these babies!
I never wear these shoes, but I couldn't resist being all matchy-matchy with the jacket buttons today.
I have wanted this circle scarf for ever and I got it for $10. She also had the new sheer version but someone beat me to it because I spent 5 seconds too long debating (stupid me).
More stuff on Ebay. Should open a store, but I'm just too cheap for that. With all the fees and crap they already take, I refuse to pay Ebay a penny more for selling my stuff!

I really tried to get Duchess, Maria, and Chester (our new ducks) in the photos, but to no avail. They just won't be still or come to me unless I have a bucket of corn on me. Oh and let's just pretend I'm squinting in the second picture rather than blinking aiiight! There is a plethora of vintage purses including two old Coach messengers and a vintage Dolce Vita, taking up mucho space in my book closet. How can you pass up a wonderfully weathered Coach messeger for $2!? I added this one to the 30+ collection today. I really should start an Etsy shop and sell some of them. Any tips on opening a shop (besides the basics they tell you) from those of you with an Etsy shop?

This is one of my father's VWs beetles. He bought a couple of them for super cheap and has totally restored them both inside and out. The other one is a lovely new color of navy blue. I will have to do a "photo-op" with it too since it's my favorite, but since he drives it ALL the time, it's hard to catch it at home during daylight. I wish I could drive a stick, but since it doesn't have A/C and its too hot in Mississippi to breathe right now, I'm in no hurry to learn.
