I'm very late to my YLF time today, but in my defense, it was my first day off work! Yeehaw! Pic #1 shows what I wore to accompany DH on his morning trip to the swap meet - I even got to go to a flea market I'd never been to before.
Crystal Candy navy dress - flea market
B. Makowsky bag - Ebay, then DIYed
Report Marks booties - Amazon
Leather choker - flea market
And pics #2-5? I finally got to get down to it and washed/organized all the swap meet items I'd scored over the past weeks (monts?), and man there are some treasures to share. I am pretty hard to impress price-wise, but I'm giddy because everything in these pics totaled $5 - and that's including a new pair of bikini briefs underneath the flasher trench. ;)
I always see cheap leather jackets at the flea market, but they are usually hideous 80's monstrosities for men... this baby is genuine suede, European (size only shown in UK and EU conversions), and fits me perfectly. $1.
The boots I might have passed up - the brand is American Eagle, and they're pretty distressed, and one pull tab doesn't stand up completely - but the comfy platform and rubber sole led me to ask for the price... also $1. Leaving them behind would be against my nature.
Then there's the bank-breaker of the bunch... this $2 handbag. It's faux leather, but the print reminded me of the Celtic knotwork bags I'd tried from Yoox way back when (see 6). I could not make the Yoox versions work for me, but I never forgot about them. The new print is a much smaller scale, and it kind of reads as wicker or somesuch from afar, but it is close enough to make me smile.
More deal reveals to come!
