Vintage floral skirt $4

My summer wardrobe is going to consist of lots of flowy skirts and maxi dresses..it is just too hot for anything else.

Vintage Trifari earrings $1!!

I am a little obsessed with gold jewelry at the moment...so when I saw these I scooped them right up.

Metallic faux snake skin flats $5

I LOVE LOVE these. I spotted them and thought, "Please be my size!"
They were. It was meant to be.


Lesson learned:
1) If you want to do an outfit post showcasing your thrifted skirt, do NOT do an intense chemical peel a few days before...unless you want to blur out your face. Trust me this is not a good look!

2) This is kind of irrelevant but mean comments suck. I have gotten a few in the last couple days. Ian said I need to get thicker skin...which I agree with, but it still makes me want to karate chop whoever said them. Okay that's all! :)

Great finds! Sorry to hear you've received mean comments. I've never understood why anyone would make such an effort to go out of their way to write something mean. I think it's more of a reflection on the commenter than you!

On a different note, I'm glad you rediscovered my blog! :) Be sure to enter my giveaway from The Body Shop! It ends tomorrow, and there's not very many entries, so you have a great chance of winning!

Aw I'm so sorry to hear you've had mean comments! If it makes you feel any better, I've had some too, and it's the worst feeling! I don't understand what drives people to do that - I like my happy blogging world free of meanies!

And I love the floral skirt!!! I've been looking for one for the longest time - so cute! You've had some good luck with these thrifty finds lately! :)

Aimee said...

These are some amazing finds! I never find cute thrifty clothes around here. Everything is always junky looking! Thanks for stopping by!

Gah, I have had one mean comment before and it was dreadful.

I was thinking to myself, what makes a person so rude that they would do that on another person's blog?!

Oh well, just remember that haters means they are jealous of your success. :)

Love the floral skirt, it's such a steal!

You found some treasures! I wish I had more patience for thrifting, maybe if I didn't have to bring my kids I would. :)

Mean comments do suck! Thanks for leaving some nice ones on mine.

Ugh, hearing you've had mean comments made me sick to my stomach. People never cease to amaze me.

Leslie *Fresh Out of Lemons* said...

Yep, I've had mean makes-your-stomach-drop comments too. I devoted a post to mine:

Just developing a thicker skin wasn't ok for me. I (and anyone) should be able to live and share my life without being bullied. I won't accept such things as part of life, and I think that there are a growing trend of people who feel the same way.

Don't sweat it. Besides 1 mean person, the rest of us LOVE YOU!

And GOLD! My favorite. All my jewelry, besides my wedding set, is gold. And I've even considered gold-plating my set. :)

I am sorry you have received some negative comments :( They say you know you are getting popular when you start to get negative/critical comments! And don't develop a thick skin...you are FAB just the way you are. There are too many thick skinned people out there already!!!

Amy@mad.amyt said...

Yes, i agree... the people who love you are always going to out number the few nasty ones! Love the flats! That is steal of a deal....

thula jewelry said...

I agree with the Gunny Sack!

Great blog!

Sarah said...

I'm loving the shoes. I've been needing a pair of gold or silver shoes in my closet. One day I'll be brave enough to get some =)

so cute!

Emily said...

I agree w/ Gunny Sack about staying who you are. It's ok to be sensitive (at least to a healthy degree) when people are offensive.

Anyway, I love flowery stuff for summer wear; think you've got the right idea!

I love those Vintage Trifari earrings. They look so simple but also precious at the same time. I love collecting jewelries such as earrings, bracelets and necklaces.

Aside from the gold earrings, I also love the gold shoes. Those shoes are perfect to wear in a party.
