Recycle It

12 Oct

How cute is this! Once an old beat up suitcase is now a very chic and shophiscated looking chair. South African furniture designer Katie Thompson takes old suitcases and turns them into a useful sitting chair. Each piece is unique and different!

Alexander the Great

12 Oct

Alexander McQueen has left a magnificent legacy in the fashion industry! I am always thankful for those individuals that follow their passion and operate in the gift that God gave them. McQueen was definitely gifted to be a designer!  He never fails to deliver the element of fantasy in his collection. His shows are full of that Alice in wonderland feel with a hint of Out of Africa. One would not actually wear these garments but, rather try them on and get their picture taken in them. Kind of like those dress up booths for the old western photos you used to take with your family when you were a kid. However, if you were brave enough you might wear one of these yummy dresses to a masquerade ball!!






My love for Thrift Town & Bargain World

12 Oct

I'm letting you in on a HUGE secret, my 2 favorite thrift stores in the world! Yes, I said it in the world! I've shopped in thrift stores in Paris, Italy, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, and Miami….the list could go on and on. I must give this disclamier that Paris and New York have the MOST beautiful garments in their second hand stores the only down fall is the price is so high you might as well purchase it brand new. I usually do a little skip when i go into Thrift Town in San Francisco and Bargain World in Tacoma, Wa.  Both stores carry an obscene amount of name brand labels, vintage dresses and the prices are extremely low! How low you may ask…. well try $6 for a gorgeous burgundy leather jacket!  Oh, here's one more perk if your in the military you get 10% off your purchase at Bargain World.  HAPPY HUNTING!!!!

Bargain World: 15615 Pacific Ave S, Tacoma, WA (253) 536-2557 ‎

Thrift Town: 2101 Mission St, San Francisco, CA (415) 861-1132 ‎
