Work, work out, then werk!

Back in December I was stopped on my lunch-break for a quick 'street-style' photograph.  I didn't think to get the information from the photographer where it would be posted...must be so used to paparazzi these days...

Well very randomly during a Google image search for pink shoes, there it pops up. I'm sure there is a logical explanation for this but most likely has something to do with my celebrity status.

If nothing else, consider this evidence you should always leave your house looking and feeling your best! 
 
Thanks Sylvia Chen of THISBEAUTIFULMOVEMENT for the lovely photo.

Go For It

There's nothing like perusing through 131 Pre-Fall 2012 collections to spike your outfit inspiration threshold and taint your need-to-shop-right-now willpower.

Then again, you could just let someone else do it, someone that can unsuspiciously click between screens faster than their boss can walk by and notice.  Someone like me....because I already did it (and managed not to get fired)... and I picked out my favorites and I posted them on  CLICK facebook HERE with my "multi-uploader-thingee" and  I may have also accidentally included some Spring 2012 couture. Go for it.

Thank you, more please

On my way to the city, camera in hand, newly thrifted grey wool coat and light lavender mongolian wool boa, I asked a young boy to snap my picture when I saw a glistening patch of mid-day light below the tracks.  He told me he and his friend were going to sell fruit in that very spot.
I told him I'd buy some when he does.

Arms Like McQueen

Notice the hair. Oh and the giant puffy sleeves...
Those opening words may have just given you clues about the nature of this post. It isn't to show you how I looked in my early thrifting days, although by the style of my phone and the length of my hair, and the fact that I know this did not happen recently, suggests otherwise.  It isn't about the return of the classic white shirt (but you should own one if you don't) and it isn't my new MySpace profile picture (I'd rather use this one).

It also may not be about my psychic tendencies. However, if you look at the bottom-left picture from the  Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2012 collection and then look at the top picture of me while squinting your eyes, you may just see double.

Just sayin!

Closet Freak

There's a rumor going around that you're a closet freak... 
It's ok. I won't tell anyone.
Instead, I'll do you (one) better.
How about a little something to satisfy your craving...

Real Girl Genius

Meet Maya.  She's my friend but I'm pretty sure she'd be yours too.
She loves life and lives it to the fullest, but second-most importantly, she does it in Style.

I gifted this thrifted snake-print dress to her before she packed up her life and moved it to Spain - Spain! Which also happens to be much closer to her handsome boyfriend in Paris. Yes, this is real story, not a dream. 

My only stipulation for her to take the dress was that she take a picture of how she styles it. So, being the lady that she is, she politely accepted the challenge and whoa! Double-whammy! Sent me not one but TWO thrifted looks back. Now that's the thinking of a real girl genius. I like the way she thinks.

Nothing like a double dose of inpsirational thrift-style to kick-start 2012. Agreed?

Like Totally Scoob

Ended my year where it all began - the St. Vincent De Paul Thrift Store in Madison, WI.

YAHOO!

I can already tell this is going to be a really good {thrifty} year.
