Casual Outfit Of The Week

I now am making time to pop into a Thrift Shop every now and then after not bothering for several years. I still prefer to find my Vintage clothes on eBay and Etsy for the pure convenience of it, as you can do 50 Thrift shops and not find anything... which equals a big fat waste of time! Last week tho I had to eat my words as I had a fantastic week!  I got a bakelite bangle for 50c, 2 1970's blouses for $3 each, 3 50's scarfs for $5, a 50's beaded necklace for $1 and a gorgeous in almost new condition 1940's hat for $15.

This deadstock 1970's blouse I found in an RSPCA store for $4. Score! It still had original tags and the embroidery is beautiful. Until I find some high waisted jean capri's, my Target ones will have to do with my retro styled green wedges I purchased in Singapore for $12.

Because it was an errand running day my make up was minimal.  No eyebrow filling I'm afraid or eyeshadow and mascara....just my Russian Red lippie.
