weekend wrap up

What did I do this weekend?
Thrift shopped with mom.
Attended a wedding party.
Lazed on the beach.
Had two fabulous dinners.

Pictures? Why, yes.

summer feet

I'm always kind of happy to see my feet after so many months.
My pal at Chanel sent me some beautiful nail polishes. This is Black Pearl.


There's my mom in the most massive thrift shop I've ever seen.




Huge doesn't begin to describe it. Huge, well-lit, clean, astoundingly well organized is getting close.
What did I buy/spend?
Four dresses and a top. $25.00.
Nope, I can't believe it either.

Here's something else I can't quite believe...


this is the packaging that some hair clips came in.
It's a "pleasure to be a woman?" Really, hair clip company? Why not something like: hey! here are some funky, cheap little hair clips which you will undoubtedly leave in all the pockets of all your clothing within the first week you own them?


Another interesting tag. Apparently, ce vétement must not be exposed to direct sunlight. Like a vampire, I guess. But a dress.


Nice weather for a scooter ride or a morning at the beach...


We had our first annual Summer Dip last night.


Tea anyone?

I thrift shopped with my daughter last week. She, too, had great luck, but better luck in the smaller shops that the larger ones. You just never know, and that's part of the fun.

That size of thrift shop would intimidate the crap out of me. I like my stores small. And I adore your tea labels.
Funny, the first thought I had was "wow, I like her toenails."

I always love your choice of toenail polish! I finally tried blue last year--loved it!--and was considering either a bright lilac-y purple or black pearl this year. It's just about time for the first pedi of the summer.

And that burger looked delish. I'm sorely tempted to run to the store for some ground beef, ridged potato chips and dip makings, though I don't know if I'd do your Summer Dip with the cottage cheese.

I'm partial to onion or ranch dip made with equal parts lite sour cream and nonfat plain yogurt, myself. It reduces the calories & fat...and guilt.

But either way, I'm so happy summer is here with fresh strawberries, blueberries and apricots. I miss the Atlantic, though.

Like maybe this purple...since I don't have a friend who works for Chanel. Yet.

And I would also love to see a photo of the tie-dyed vampire dress. Please.

I love that you can legitimately eat potato chips as part of a meal - makes me want to be American. And I am not being tongue in cheek.

I'm making the summer dip for dinner on Friday. And that's all I'm making. Me, ridged chips, summer dip and the entire season of The Killing. Everyone else in the house cam fend for themselves.

All I can think is: MUST.GO.THERE.
And I like your mom!

Your mother's hair colour rocks. Good hair genes are not to be sniffed at.

That's a charity shop? I would never come out of there.

I love thrifting. I've found some marvelous things that way - sort of serendipity.

In the South tea does not come from some powdered concoction. It comes from big tea bags and hot water and sugar. Anything else ain't tea.

Now THAT is a thrift store. Agree with Ali about your mom's hair color... lucky you to have her genes. btw, I came across this Etsy shop via Twitter and thought the clothes might appeal to you... http://www.etsy.com/shop/MaLieb
