one man’s trash…

I took this mens wool blazer:
If only this toggle coat was a couple of sizes smaller…
I fell in love with this furry animal print hand held bag. Perfect trash glam.
Skull jumper: Trash & Vaudeville. Crochet dress: H&M. Leggings: American Apparel. Shoes: ASH. Fedora: Trash & Vaudeville. Chain strap bag: Boutique lower east side.
So yesterday was a drizzly grey day so what do I do? Throw on anything and go shopping at a local thrift shop for some bargains. I wore my crochet dress under a jumper for added length and girlyness (is that a word?). I posted wearing it here during the summer.
The wedges are from ASH (bought on sale) and is another item to cross off the ‘current obsession’ post I did here. They’re not like Mary Kate’s in that post, but the platform wedge is there so it’ll do. I found these here but I would need a 41 I’m sure.

    Tom Tuttle – I have another jacket with elbow patches ; )

    Thanks guys. I have a serious love for ankle socks with heels. Always have. Makes wearing open toe anything 10 x easier when its not 80 degrees outside anymore.
