Thrifted Finds: Folksy, Asian and PJ's

Long overdue to be posted is this folksy short-sleeved sweater. I originally purchased it for Acorn Pudding, but haven't been able to part with it - and posing for the pic is the first time I've even worn it! It's a sweet little cropped number (trust me, I am super short-waisted) with emerald green stripes and flower motif. Here's the c.u. Next up, my asian silk top. It's the palest shade of minty green. Just picked it up today for $4.00.

Finally, another 'should I keep it?' top. It may be a vintage PJ top. The buttons have sparkly rhinestone centers. I wrestle with letting it go because I hardly ever wear sheer clothing.

Oh, and the long brown lace hemmed tank was .25 cents from a garage sale this past weekend.
I'm on the hunt for more spring and summer goodness...

Diane ... I like the finds very much (esp. the asian style green shirt!) but what I am really liking is you modeling your finds ... YOu make a very good model :)!!

Diane said...

Thanks, Mir! So funny, because I quickly showed H the pix in my post and he liked the clothes, then said, "Um, is that YOU??"

I like the asian!

As for the model...I also was wondering if it was you!

The asian shirt is a beautiful color! We hardly have a yard sale season around here and when we do, a lot of the yard sales are ghetto because people here just don't know how to do it. Oh well! :)

Why Diane! You look super sassy!!! I LOVE IT... And that little shortsleeve sweater. what a find!! Garage sale season will be starting up here in Kansas sometime next month. WHOOOOORAAAAYYYYY..... I just can't wait... I mean really can not wait to go do this.

If I were you I would keep this finds for myself :O) And keep modeling!!

God Bless...

PS I am finishing up the homemade bean bags I'm making for my little one. I'm so excited. And as soon as I can steal away my dads old laptop I'm going to down load the pictures and post about my craft.....

I knew it was you!!! I knew it was you!!!
You're a great model and I love your fnds. The sheer top would be especially lovely for more "dress up" occasions. I can't decide which I like best, perhaps the cropped sweater or the Asian top or . . .oh heck, I like them all.

Wow Diane, I am truly impressed. All three tops are wonderful! I think the little cropped sweater is my favorite. The flower motif reminds me of the one on the gray dress I thrifted for my niece, so adorable. I'm so glad you were inspired by the COTON post, can't wait to see what else you got!

P.S. I know sheer can be hard to wear, but I say keep the PJ top. It looks so so pretty and I actually like it over the black tank like that :) and I agree, great job with the modeling!
