Because I'm Worth It


It's rare that I keep any of my thrifted treasures for myself--both because I so rarely come across petite sizes and because such hoarding would soon become economically unsustainable--but I did manage to cajole myself into keeping a few items from this month's sweep. Everything featured in the first two photos came from a multi-home estate sale while the 1940s pumps were plucked from a neighborhood Cancer Society shop once they were judiciously marked down 50% to a cool $20. Now to find an occasion...

Oooh, those SHOES! And fun dresses with crinolines!

I love the giraffe. He reminds me of my Lucy dog with that oversize out of proportion head.

I wish I was shorter, I would wear mad high shoes! Sadly though, when I do put on my platform pumps I'm like six two or six three.
Great shoes, and AWESOME brooch
