Vintage Treasures

Once upon a time (about six years ago), a sweet gentleman (Chuck)
arrived at a little church in East St. Paul with bags and bags
of women's clothing. He was helping an elderly friend...uhm...downsize(?)
Anyway, this dress was one among many treasures found
inside those bags. It was restored to near perfection with a gentle washing
and new buttons.

Sorry, sweet, vintage, beaded purse...
I don't recall where you came from, but you're special just the same.
My pal Elaina made these earrings out of vintage buttons.
You might find a pair for sale here every now and then, but not today.

This is what I wore to work last Thursday.
Not including my slip (see previous post),
I'm guessing this entire outfit cost me less than $15.
My brown Impo shoes were purchased at DSW on super duper clearance.
