Nutbush City Limits

thrifted Levi's denim jacket, American Apparel cotton shift dress, vintage belt, Urban Outfitters headband, F21 jewelry, Ray-Bans, (Sam Edelman gladiators not pictured)

Wierdly addicted to posting now. Determined to make this a daily blog of outfits and ebay auctions. Wore this jacket only inside at work because the A/C blows snowballs all day long.


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.

InnyVinny-Yep!
Whats even more insane is how some people act as if paying more is better? I dunno...

Morning Glory said...

You outfit kicks ass! It's so effortlessly hip. Your aviators are making me jealous because I recently lost the most divine pair of Marc Jacobs ones. I'm sad because their the ONLY ones that looked good on my face. I miss them. Oh well...
