my miu mius came.... aren't they freakN adorable? i can't wait to wear them... i sold both pairs of emma cooks and the jessica simpson dany platforms to justify buying these... and i'm sooo happy i did. i don't have a shopping problem or anything (cept maybe thrifting at real thrift stores) and only buy things i love, but there have been times when "getting a deal" on ebay got me. so i am reminding myself that i'd rather save and buy things i love...

i also had an extremely fruitful trip to the salvation army where i scored a thin cinnamon brown leather belt, a rope and dark brown braided belt, a long khaki skirt that i am gonna cut to appropriate spring length, a pair of army green mens shorts from the 70s, a bunch of shirts to sew into daydreamer tops (which i will post when i'm done), a sheer peach colored blouse with brown polka dot dots (pictured above) and a rainbow dyed (faux?) tail that i have no idea what i'm gonna do with yet, but makes me extremely happy. i've been wearing the peach blouse around the house over my nightgown all week and the tail has been sitting next to my laptop... i'm definitely still on my salvation army high. i think what made me even more happy is that it was the salvation army that i used to walk to from my house when i still lived with my momma.... i think all my clothing from 14-19 was from there ♥

and i also scored some wooden toys and a handmade pot (i'm collecting them for a succulent garden that will hopefully be happening this spring) from the pasadena salvation the day before.... yes, quite a week!

and although i've had an extreme lack of sleep and some unexpected bumps this week, i couldn't be happier... i guess i am just a thrift store grrl...

with a deep love for a killer pair of shoes ♥♥♥

When I read the title of this post, I thought you found those Miu Mius at the Salvation Army, which would have made me even more envious ;) There are quite amazing, and I'm certain they will be worth the price!
