10/11/12: thrift finds

Today I went to the thrift store and I found some pretty things! I am very pleased with what I picked up today, especially the fairy music box! When you wind the back clockwise, the fairy will move around because there's a magnet behind. It's very magical and I'm so glad I found it on the top dusty shelf :)
I'm very excited to work on my new navy blue dress as well. Thinking of bringing the hem up to my knees (it is pretty long) and sewing big gold buttons two rows along the top area - maybe it shall be my holiday project for this year before Christmas (p.s: I'm so excited for Christmas, especially with Starbucks starting to sell the special drinks and play Christmas music)

The peach/nude shoulder bag that I got was also a good find, because apparently it's a vintage piece by Rudolf Valentino and I remember reading about him in my history book as he was a famous actor in the USA 1920s.

Have a wonderful weekend ahead! Last week of exams to go and then I shall be free to relax without regret.

    1. Thank you! It's got the paper bag kind of effect and it's so comfortable as well. I went to the St. Bernadette Church's thrift store :)

  5. The cat waistcoat reminds me of Freddie Mercury :) he had a custom-made waistcoat with images of his own cats all over it.
