I went to a church rummage sale today. The church is on the fancy side o’ town with all the top name brands and what not making and appearance, so I made my way out there. I’ve been going to this church rummage sale since I was a kid, and I thought it was funny that, as soon as I stepped in, I recognized the slightly-musty smell and my feet walked the snaking paths involuntarily.
This is what I bought (around $20, for the record. POPPIN’ TAGS):
Here’s my explanation for everything, just in case you were wondering:
- Shoes. They’re Sofft which is, for the record, one of my favorite brands of shoes. Comfy. Classy. Cute. Well-made. This is not a paid advertisement, and I’m only gonna say it once. They make good stuff, peoples.
- Belt. It looks like it’s Middle Eastern. I’m working on a PLAY based in the MIDDLE EAST. Pretty sure it’s authentic. 😉 Maybe not…but it has BELLS on the ends of the tie-thing. Therefore: it’s legit.
- Sweater. It’s embellished with colorful embroidered flowers. You only live once, guys. I had to do it.
- Gloves. I’m a sucker for vintage gloves. I think they’re the bees’ knees and I wear them relatively regularly. Thing is: manufacturers don’t make gloves any more so I kind of feel like I need to buy them if I ever want them ever again! These were in brown, and I didn’t have brown yet–even though I have a gallon bag FULL of vintage gloves–plus they had button detailing along the wrist. #done
- Teal pants. The skinny is in. And, for a few bucks, I’ll do what I gotta do to look like I know what’s up.
