Behold ye eyes, I have discovered white balance.
I bought this dress yesterday during the end of my thrift week. This was one of yesterday’s Value Village dress finds. I also bought a nearly new ivory silk/cashmere blend dress (is it ever soft!). Though the prices there were higher, this was evened out by dollar week at the thrift store across the street from work, which I visited three times, with success.
Needless to say, this week I was trapped in the dressing room for ten minutes as I tried on a vintage wool coat. Needless to say, the top button wouldn’t come undone. Cue me trying to saw the loop off with my keys (unfortunately I lost this handy key tool Katie’s dad got me to airport security a while back, that would have been my saviour!). The loop would not break! Neither would the button come off. This was some quality coat. This was probably a sign that this coat should not be mine, but I persevered and tried taking it off by pulling it over my head. Finally, the sheer strength of my scull, (and maybe some of the fraying care of my keys?), resulted in escape! Why wouldn’t I purchase it for $1?!
Saturday my friend J. came over for brunch and I got this jacket at a consignment store for a mere $1. Dollar sales at consignment stores – yes! And it fits perfectly, even in the sleeves! I love how the water dripping from the trees icicled by the lighthouse on the shore of lake Ontario.
My addiction this week? Sweet potato pie. Yum. I may have created my own recipe, and it’s delightful. I think I’m going to try making it into a cheesecake. I don’t play by the rules of baking with proper ingredients or measurements. I’m a rebel like that.
