A Wild West Thrifty Thursday

Having grown up in Alberta (a.k.a: the Texas of Canada) I know a wee bit about dressing the part of an urban cowboy…

little known fact: At the beginning of my long-ago starving artist days, in addition to waitressing, I taught fancy two-stepping classes to help make ends meet – & I can still polka, country foxtrot, spin, weave & turn like nobody’s business! Yeehaw!

Cowboy Hat (gift) €0 – Honest-to-goodness-cowboy-shirt (had since the 90’s) €0 – Undershirt (had for years) €0 – Belt (thrifted & refashioned) €0.10 – Jeans (had for years) €0 – Two-steppin’ cowboy boots (thrifted) €1.50

Total cost: €1.60

To tuck or not to tuck? Head on over to Conversations with a Cowboy and get the scoop on why some cowboys do and some don’t…

Can you believe I scored those gorgeous boots for a mere €1.50?

A Back To School Thrifty Thursday

Hands up if your school days were the best time of your life…

yeah…me neither!

Thinking back to those oh-so-long-ago days of taunts & torments makes me breathe a massive sigh of relief that September has not meant heading back to school for a very long time…and I can assure anyone who is going through a difficult school time that it does get indescribably better once you leave the petri dish of high school. That thick skin, inner strength & humour that developed as a necessary line of defense during those seemingly-never-ending days at school will serve you awesomely along the road of success for the rest of your life!

…and to the bullies: Karma is patient and will always find you in the end.

“S” sweatshirt (gift) €0 – Vintage Blouse (thrifted) €1 – Vintage Skirt (thrifted) €0.50 – Vintage Wristlet (flea market) €3 – Tights (had for years) €0 – Chunky Heeled Lace-ups (flea market) €2

An India Inspired Thrifty Thursday

I love the floaty romantic style and phenomenal fabrics of traditional Indian fashion and as a lassie was always thrilled when my friend’s mom allowed us to play dress-up with her gorgeous collection of saris, so you can imagine my delight when I discovered this incredible Handmade-in-India tunic dress at my local thrift shop…on €1 day:

 

I squealed in excitement & received such an evil glare of death from the elderly woman beside me at the rack that I’m positive I would no longer be on this earth had my munchkin not swooped in to save me with her adorable smiles & giggles that seem to act as kryptonite to bitter old Germans, rendering their penetrating sour stares powerless.

The embroidery & beadwork are divine and each flower contains a tiny mirror at its center

 

Indian Tunic Dress (thrifted) €1 – Black Maxi Dress (thrifted) €2 – Vintage Beaded Clutch (ebay) €1 – Adorable Feet (DNA) €0

Total cost: €4
