Here's a few things I did grab.
There's a picture of a lovely, 70s, black dress after it's steam bath (that's why it's on the shower curtain rod.) The price was right ($2) and it's a simple, flattering style. All it needs is a belt to make it sale-worthy. I found a scarf/sash that looked to be of the disco era and bought that for $1. Let's see.
Oh, hell yeah. Size small Hue leggings, half off! (Add your own "pants half off joke" here.) My winter wardrobe has been a steady string of thick leggings under a dress or tunic with a cardigan. If you like leggings, Hue's the brand I'm down with. They cost a fortune at Macy's, (proof ) and I wouldn't have discovered them, had my parents not gifted me a pair for Xmas awhile back. The days that I find them in a thrift store for $2.50 are good days.
So, where was I with my stories of thrifting woe? I found the most beautiful old dress, most likely 80s or 90s, but in a retro look of a previous decade. Like a Chanel style suit, but as a sleeveless dress in a size 6. I didn't have to try it on to know it would fit well, (but I would have to be strong and list it, anyway.) Here's a preview...
"Ha!" I sneered with an evil grin, as I filled the sink with cold water. "I don't take orders from clothing labels! Into the Woolite bath you go!" After a short soak, I rolled in a towel and then laid it flat to dry. Oh. no...
I've reviewed a few stain removal options to try, and if I must, I can try and dye the whole damn thing. I won't be able to sell it in that condition, of course. It survived 20 years, but couldn't last an hour in my hands.
Which brings me to the silver lining, I guess. Now, I can keep it. It's a wreck, but I'll see what I can do.
Let's end this on a high note.
Since I'm showing you velvet, I also grabbed this while I was there:
Linkin' up: Sir Thrift A Lot, and maybe that's it!
