3. Jean for Joseph Le Bon beaded top
This lovely find was purchased at the wonderful Veteran's Thrift Store for $6. It's Jean for Joseph Le Bon, and is 100% pure silk. When I originally purchased this top, it came with shoulder pads that I later cut off. Must be from the 80's haha. It definitely reminded me of something Michael Jackson would rock.
2. The complete handbook of Astrology
Call me a freak, a mystic, or a fellow believer...IDGAB what anyone says, I was absolutely thrilled with this find! I found this baby at the vintage bookstore for $10, calling my name. I've been searching for a solid book about Astrology for months! And low and behold, I found the perfect one. I have yet to determine how firm a believer I am in the zodiac. I have convinced myself enough that there must be some truth in it, as I feel like I am the epitome of an Aquarius... at least from what I've read about so far. I thoroughly embrace my sign, which I suppose some would argue could result in wishful thinking. Who knows, and who cares. Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs. I know it sounds silly, but this has been becoming my religion haha. Freedom of religion, people! And now I have my bible :p I'm hoping to read through this whole book, study it, and finally establish an educated opinion of astrology.
A great Aquarian quote that I find fitting to my life.
1) Jacobs By Marc Jacobs quilted purse/wallet
Imagine my excitement when I, still enthralled by the many deals already in hand, came across this little shiny champagne purse in the Veteran's Thrift Store. Contemplating whether or not to purchase this metallic (hello, my favorite) bag, I decided to peek inside to check the price. Prying open the bag, my focus quickly shifted from the price tag to the gold engraved logo on the inside of the pocket, which read:
MARC BY MARC JACOBS
Now that's a mouthful. If this wasn't amazing enough, it was marked at only $5. The days when I'd think I'd never own anything by Marc Jacobs... out the window! Great day.
After this more than successful day of shopping, I gazed at my two stuffed "Thank You" plastic bags packed full of clothes and my the book that was opened across my lap as we drove away, throughly satisfied in knowing that I had spent less than $50. Happy. About to get happier.
Thank you Liang sisters for showing me Donut Man! By the time we were done shopping, it was right around snack time! We decided to take a little detour on our way home to this little windowed donut shop called Donut Man. Unfortunately they were out of the two famous donuts they serve there: "the tiger tail"and their peach stuffed donuts, the whole reason for our excursion there. Oh well, this just means i'll have to take another trip there soon :) I picked up a half dozen of some of their yummiest looking alternatives, but they were devoured before I could even take photos :p I must repeat this day, ASAP!
