Stripped Sweaters



These are some of the amazing pictures I've gotten over the last couple of weeks at thrift stores. How epic is the dog portrait? I've seen a couple of dog portraits over the years at antique malls and they are all WAY over priced, I mean $175? No thanks. But I found this one at Salvation army a couple of weeks ago for $19.99, and could not resist. As you can me my boyfriend and I are a tad obsessed with animal paintings. I purchased the bunny painting today and plan on hanging it above my dresser once I figure out how to actually hang the damn thing.


Sweater: Free People Skirt: H and M (borrowed from room mate) Shoes: Jeffrey Cambell

Today I ventured off the beaten path to a thrift store I've been meaning to go to for awhile and scored big time. Along with this lovely bunny picture you see before  you I found a Christian Dior Bow Tie ($1.98), Polaroid camera ($3.98) and countless dresses.

I know these pictures are super blurry. I lost the lens cap to my camera awhile back (I know I need to get a new one) and usually I wipe down the lens before taking photo's but I completely forgot today, and I really didn't feel like taking more pictures (it's my day off I have an excuse for my laziness) so this is the best I could to for the day!

Very inspired by the sweater/skirt combo. I bought a polaroid at the thrift store a few weeks ago. Where are you finding film?

I do love this whole black outfit on you! Looking so gorgeous,I like the floppy hat with that chunky sweater.

The skirt is perfect with everything. And I would cry if I lose my lens cap,I end up always misplacing it around in the house.
