Thank you! I was super excited. There was a bunch of stuff that I didn't get...but a gal can't have everything (although it seems I am trying)!

Mind you, this last ten years, the fashion market has been inundated with cheap clothes (ghastly ones as well) and this is what you mainly see now in charity shops! But hope springs eternal!
It is what keeps us all going back....eternal hope!

I've found lots of great things since I started thrifting, and I'll try to post some of them here.
Beautiful bag! I got my Mom a Coach bag at a garage sale a few weeks ago that will be one of her Mother's Day gifts!

I was looking at that Marni skirt on the Outnet.com and considered buying it for about $200....you paid $10??? That is awesome! Congrats on your deals.
I was really happy with my $10 Marni also!! With BE...you just have to be consistent. Stop in every now and again.

Starting with this idea ... an R2D2 Skirt ... I want it ... but not quite that shape ...
http://i397.photobucket.com/albums/p...rk/R2D2002.jpg
It's a skirt on Etsy that has also been showin' up round the Intrawebz ...
http://i397.photobucket.com/albums/p...rk/R2D2003.jpg
I actually was pretty sure I had all the material I would need
http://i397.photobucket.com/albums/p...rk/R2D2004.jpg
So I pulled stuff out
http://i397.photobucket.com/albums/p...rk/R2D2005.jpg
Remember when Sephora used to package things beautifully when you bought for them? Good Times!

I was thinking about using the blue grey material for the light gray in R2D2 ... but it wasn't light enough. So I tried to bleach it. A bit of bleach, water and set out in the sun ... and it turned ....
http://i397.photobucket.com/albums/p...rk/R2D2009.jpg
Pink? .......... not that helpful actuallllyyy

http://i397.photobucket.com/albums/p...rk/R2D2010.jpg

Getting started .... I just looked at the pictures. I knew I wanted it longer and to make it more fitted and not an giant elastic waist band gathered
http://i397.photobucket.com/albums/p...rk/R2D2033.jpg
I think it's kinda more interesting this way ...
http://i397.photobucket.com/albums/p...rk/R2D2031.jpg
Gonzo helped. He jumped down off a table onto a cutting board and almost impaled himself on my razor cutter. He jumped up when I was trying to put in the zipper. Joy. Joy. He wanted to pierce his nose in the running machine.

Hubs at one point said, "Um Gonzo is trying to eat needles. He's going thru this holder trying to grab the sharp end of the pins."

"Yes, he's hardcore. He's Punk Rock Siamese Sewing Cat Assistant."
I love the part where you realize you have the Perfect Shoes ...
http://i397.photobucket.com/albums/p...rk/R2D2026.jpg

From F21, but bought at Salvation Army for $1.50 ... All the material ... thrifted or bought at a deep discount some time in the past ...

I like how the black fabric glows ... since it is his main eyeball ... and I like that my red is velvet ...

http://i397.photobucket.com/albums/p...rk/R2D2016.jpg

Side view
http://i397.photobucket.com/albums/p...rk/R2D2019.jpg
Back .. not sure how I took this picture and I am sure I could never repeat it ...
http://i397.photobucket.com/albums/p...rk/R2D2039.jpg

Old red metal zipper bought for 10 cents at some thrift or another ... sewn on the outside cause ... I mean ... you need more weirdness with a skirt like this ...
http://i397.photobucket.com/albums/p...rk/R2D2040.jpg
And some details in the back ...

I like it ... R2D2 is the coolest cutest thing in the entire Star Wars series. I had a huge crush on him but of course he only had an eye for ... CP30 ...
That skirt looks like a designer piece you would buy in a store. NICE JOB!!!! I love it :) I would wear it.

Emanuel Ungaro shell sweater jacket. This makes noise when you move. I like it when people know I am coming!

http://i1246.photobucket.com/albums/...k/1f383887.jpg
http://i1246.photobucket.com/albums/...k/663c1155.jpg

Marni skirt. Yes. It is new with tags of $665. Fits like a dream!

http://i1246.photobucket.com/albums/...k/eafb42e6.jpg
http://i1246.photobucket.com/albums/...k/82c22200.jpg

Prada dress. Can't tell much from the picture, but it is a perfect black dress. Very flattering at the top with a low scoop and the skinny straps.

http://i1246.photobucket.com/albums/...k/d9f1b936.jpg

Shocking pink/maybe it is red, soft as butter....Linda Allard/Ellen Tracy jacket

http://i1246.photobucket.com/albums/...k/bf2faa6b.jpg

Piazza Sempione skirt from Buffalo Exchange. It was $24, but they sold it fo $12 because it had a litle stain on it. I was actually worried about this stain as it looked pretty set in...but still did not let it deter me. The dry cleaners were able to remove the stain and I have the most gorgeous circle skirt EVER!
http://i1246.photobucket.com/albums/...k/0eea8421.jpg

And last but not least...a few years ago I was a BE and chit-chatted with a girl who had just sold some stuff. In her bag was this bright crochet sweater and I told her that I was surprised theyhad not purchased it as it was super cute. So...she gave it to me!! I had never worn it, but last week bought this white James Perse t-shirt dress there in trade and it is PERFECT to wear under the sweater!

I will be forever jealous of your Marni skirt. Nice haul!

I found these amazing Rock and Republic jeans for $5 at SA today. They are perfect but a bit small so they will go in my Buffalo Exchange pile. I wish they would fit :(
