    • Reply dawnlucy June 5, 2015 at 12:36 pm

      You know, I started thrifting when I started blogging because I saw all these great finds other bloggers were getting! You have to look through a bunch of … stuff … but its a thrill when you find something great! 🙂

    Perfect! When I am wearing Jeans, I always pair them with a classic blazer and heels. Your shoes are amazing and add the glam touch to your look!
    Love to see the other ladies and that Ann is wearing the same red culottes as I do 🙂

    I love your new Prada's. I found a vintage Coach and Chanel shoes in a thrift store one day and loved them but that was years ago and the Chanel shoes didn't even fit, so my mom kept them and wore them maybe twice but she kept them in her closet as a diamond found in the rough haha! You look fabulous!
