shades of gold in the cold.

What a pretty day it was! Surprisingly cold, and it actually began to snow (and snow, and snow) shortly after these photos were taken, but man, look at that sunshine...really does a girl some good.

After work yesterday, I made a quick stop at Avalon to semi-satiate my recent urges to go thrifting! The reason I say just 'semi' is 'cause the shop is often chock full of certain name brand clothing from more recent years, rather than your solid retro resale shop, but I tend to find it handy for basics that I don't want to spend a pretty penny on. I was a bit more successful than anticipated - I found a lovely fitted black dress with a square sailor collar that I would guess is from the '70s, and a marvelous white mink collar from the '40s. I can't wait to style them! Hopefully one or both will be making an appearance this week, so stay tuned ;) and Happy Weekend!
