Urge to thaw rising... risingggg!!!

 

Ahh.... It's a beautiful sight to see, isn't it?  Thaw... spring's baby bump.  Ha!  Today I did some very revelatory thinking early in the morning, so it set me up right for the rest of the day. 


I'm 100% Thrifted today, baby.  Except for the tights.  I don't do the thrifted tights.  I did once thrift an unopened package of 80's L'eggs and they literally disintegrated as I wore them, that and the waistband was so aged that it felt like I was wearing the ring from a jug of milk. 

I was able for the first time to whip out the trench coat I thrifted in San Francisco--- I gotta imagine that would be the best place to go for cast-off trenches, right?  Speaking of cast-offs, I descended on one of my local thrifts today and it was definitely the right decision. Nautical cardigans, a khaki bell skirt a la this J. Crew one that I've been lusting after, a pair of suede Hush Puppies and a hilarious Simpsons tee-shirt featuring Mr. Sparkle!

 

And oh yes!  The clogs!  I thrifted these last summer, prescient thing that I am, and much as I love clogs, I'm finding these rather difficult to style but I think it has to do with my distinct lack of leg.  It doesn't matter.  They're silver, and rhinestone-encrusted, and Michael Kors, betch, so I'll keep practicing til something fashionylicious develops.

Til later,

Elissa.
