and all your future lies beneath your hat...

I find that the best thing you can get at a thrift store is potential. To be successful, you need to not just see one item as it is, you need to see all that it could be with a little attention.

My boyfriend and I perused two antique stores and a Goodwill yesterday. I spotted this dress on the racks at Goodwill and, liking the print, I took it down for further inspection. Well further inspection took me to the fitting rooms, and bam, fit like a glove. However, the silhouette and the pretty print were plagued by the twelve inch slits cut up the dress from the hem in six places. Even though I liked the length, those slits were too much to handle. So, when I got home, I promptly took out my tiny pins and got to work.

This gorgeous hat was a find from one of the antique stores yesterday. I am in love with the wide brim. It came with this fall colored ribbon already on it, but I think I may remove it and add my own.
