THURSDAY'S THRIFT...eye candy link up...

 
Hello darling readers and new darling readers.  So nice of you to drop by and see what fabulous things I am up to lately.  I found this skirt at Goodwill for $3.99.  I have had it in my closet for some time but did not know what to pair with it.  After having cleaned my closet, it was more clear to me, that this vintage cashmere sweater was the best match for it. Also found at Goodwill $3.99.  I feel like a Parcheesi board but I love the bold colors and pattern in this skirt.  It has no name on the label but made in Korea is clearly stated.


I traveled to Philadelphia today for a dental appointment and stopped on the way home to feed the stray cats in the parking lot near where I used to work and where Timothy Winter was born and rescued.  The dentist gave me a clean bill of health having cleaned my teeth as he poked and prodded a bit.  The hygienist told me that I am doing a great job at home, taking good care of my teeth.  I was so happy to hear this as we both agreed it was due to the spin brush that I have been using for the past few years.  She said that ever since people have been using spin/battery operated toothbrushes that there has been great improvement in the cleanliness of people's mouths and that their teeth are not as stained from coffee, nicotine and red wineSo I am suggesting to you now, go to Walmart or the drug store and invest in a spin, battery operated toothbrush...it is worth the money.  Your teeth are worth the money.  That is right, we fashion bloggers cover everything from fashion to hygiene. 


I am linking this post to Shayla/Lisa's blog, Fortyish and Fluffy.  She is starting an Eye Candy link where we get to post anything that inspired us during our week and that we consider to be eye candy.  So hop on over and link up.   Now I am not saying that I am eye candy but I am linking this skirt to the post as eye candy.  Tammy at Silver Style is also having a link up for Trending Through the Decades featuring stripes.  If you look closely at my skirt, is has stripes, so it qualifies. 

Have a great weekend darlings, I have to work but it's ok because I get to do yoga with the seniors and make sure they attend Sunday service.  I am linking this post to Anna of In Honor of Design.  She is hosting a link up called The True Beauty Files.  Hop on over and visit.   Have a great one!!  Dawn xo

You may not saying you're eye candy but I'm saying it! That skirt is phenomenal- wowza how cool is that outfit! Hmmm spinbrush eh? I always gasp at the price but might be worth it if some of the surface stains are removed more easily!

Piper Alexander said...

Gosh darnit! I love this skirt! If you're ever over it, I'll take it, thank you!

Gorgeous skirt Dawn!!! Now that is colorblocking at it's best! Ewww, don't say dentist. I was a bad girl last year and a popcorn kernel did me in. LOL Had to get a crown and not a princessy one either. LOL Have a great weekend! Will invest in a great spin brush!

Yay for a good report from the dentist!!
I might need to invest in one of those toothbrushes now ;)

Love the boldness of this entire outfit!

Dawn,
This skirt is brilliant! I can't believe you found it for 4$! What a find! I think the fur throw is the perfect touch to tie everything together. So creative.
Thanks for linking up. Always love seeing what you come up with!
