shopping my closet





Sunday.  And it's a pretty big day for me!
I've been diligently working to lose some
weight so I could "shop the closet".
The Lord knows there's plenty of clothes in it!
Today, I fit comfortably into this thrifted, vintage dress. It was missing the cloth belt, so I belted it with a navy blue belt I also found at a thrift store.

See the word stenciled above me?
That pretty much sums up my journey this far.





Here I am standing next to a golden oak buffet
that we got at a thrift store years ago.  Most of the white wares on its top were also found at thrift stores (except the pumpkin - which I made at a ceramic shop).  This picture "tells" me I could tidy that buffet top up a bit...and maybe do SOMEthing to look a little less matronly in the dress.  (I was so excited to fit in it that I didn't think about accessorizing!)
If you missed my previous post
(Tall, Huge, Seasonal), take a look at some of my weekend finds.
I just couldn't wait another day to celebrate my closet!

  5. Your efforts have paid off I see. Congratulations. BTW, I think the dress looks very classic and really doesn't need a lot of accessories.

    1. Thanks, Darla. I guess I just FEEL a little matronly :)
      (Maybe 'cause I AM!)

  6. You look lovely in the dress. If it was me I would also do some accessorising and have fun, maybe a brightly coloured scarf in my case.
