Today is Inspiration Monday!!  I know, I am excited too.  Two Birds sisters,  Nora and Megan host this fabulous link up on their blog.  You should get in on it here and now.  I did not have anything similar to Ali Larter's outfit except for my high waisted, Levis jeans that I thrifted for less than 5 bucks.  The sheer, floral, cover up is from a vintage dress in my closet.   I do have a few things with sparkle but they just didn't make me feel fabulous.  So I went with a 70's take which is where I am most comfortable. 

New Coach bag c/o my husband.  Now, it is not totally new,  it is an exchange for the one he got me back in May for my birthday.   I do better with Fall colors so I exchanged it.  I had never used the other one which was pink and beautiful but it was bigger than this one and more expensive.  I exchanged it for a Coach wallet and this purse.  Always thrifty, I know.

I took these photos in my neighbor Beth's yard.  She snapped some of them for me...thank you Beth.  I called her and asked her if I could use her  barn/shed and dilapidated garage.  She moved here less than a year ago and she is in the midst of cleaning up after the guy who lived there before her.  She and I did the yard sale last Saturday. Today she told me that if she ever needed to be entertained, she would call me.   I can be the life of the party but still, I didn't think I was that funny!   Everything thrifted with the exception of my bag.  Have a great day darlings...thank you for dropping by...stay inspired!  Dawn xo

beautiful, I like the long floral vest, it's so you. You have a few coach bags, and all look nice and so thrifty. I got one and was so happy until I realized it was a fake. HA!

Saw you over at Two Birds and I just LOVE your sheer cover up - it is so freaking awesome!!! I'm on a mission to find one now, seriously. It would be so cute with dresses too, what other ways have you worn it?
