Shirt thrifted, Jeans pac sun, Shoes thrifted, Cuff gift, Bracelets various, Watch target, Earrings gift

This striped shirt and ballet flats are my next two purchases from my thrift store shop extravaganza. Woo I sure did haul out the motherload!
I bought this beautiful silk stripe top (mostly because my sister in laws reaction was positive) I wasn't quite sure of it right away, but as soon as she started pointing out its features I soon agreed. Its hard to see in these pics (sorry, they were rushed as I was already late for work...) but it is quite a lot longer in the back than in the front, giving it a better fit instead of seeming boxy. It is also 100% silk so that means perfectly flouncy material...mmm I love flouncy! And of course it's striped and I LOVE stripes! Also in my sister's reaction, she mentioned wearing it with some red lips and I did just that and love the combo. Needless to say I am glad I had her with me and I'm so glad to have purchased this shirt, having a total of $1 it was an unlikely option to pass it up anyway.
As for these shoes, I wasn't set out to buy anything like this, but once again, I saw them...they fit...they were $2!!! Wait what?!?!? Yup, and Calvin Klein and a beautiful patent charcoal color, besides, my black pointed ballet flats are becoming a little less I figured it would be a good idea to snag these up.
There's only one more item from my thrift store spree, and I'm still thinking about how I want to style it. But until then, I hope you all have a wonderful thursday!!
P.S. I am going to be performing in the Nutcracker this weekend and next. I am a parent in the opening party scene. I get to wear this old fashioned dress (which reminds me of a night gown that I used to wish I owned, imagining myself going to some kind of's wonderful) with a long train that I hook to my finger as I dance around with my fake husband at our fake christmas party...I sort of feel like I'm straight out of the cast of Pride and Prejudice...(little girly screams!!)
