Being on a budget is never fun, but it can breed some real fashion creativity. I’ve prided myself on filling my closet with thrift items that don’t look thrifty. Hence my $25 BCBG skirt and $19 Report pumps. From tip to toe, this little ensemble set me back $50.
I would love to hear some of your thrifting stories.
This week, as a part of my promise to stay busy and entertained I crammed as many activities into the past 7 days I could. I attended a meeting about a very meaningful organization and saw a man on a unicycle (I really need to reconsider my job-we don’t have nearly enough unicycle guys), I spent time with a number of people who I love and adore, and attended a raucous party with IONA Magazine. All in all it was a productive, fun, crazy, intense week so all I did today was have brunch and read my W Mag. Thank you for the weekend.
Here are a few pictures from my week.
Yay Iona and Alimi!!!!!
This thrift store in Silver Lake had some pretty interesting art and a beaded shirt I’m picking up tomorrow.
Then there were the near naked models and bond fire time in Venice. It was a good week, excluding how gross bond fires make your hair smell. I swear one wash does not get that stink out. Ugh that Friday will stay with me for a while.
The whole ensemble was under $80, well excluding the shoes…
Here’s a close-up of my sparkly heels. I’m obsessed with the bling…I call it my flash and trash!
