One person's trash?



So these are the treasures I decided to keep (for a time at least) from my excursion yesterday.  This coat I found at a thrift shop I had never been to before and happened to get for 1/2 off ($12.50!!!!) I am not really sure what my fascination is right now (well always) with these long printed skirts, but I keep finding them and wondering why they are even cast off!!??  They are gorgeous, adjustable, amazing. . . I don't know, I mean maybe its just me, but I am all about them right now.  The sweet little cotton dress near the top, is just right.  I love everything about it.

And I wore pretty much the top outfit last night (with the addition of some dark gray leggings) to a lecture by WENDY TREMAYNE.  Have you heard of this woman?  She is the performance / public works artist responsible for developing the very first Swap-o-rama-rama.  Talk about making another person's trash a treasure.  Everyone with an interest in community, being a maker rather than a consumer, and finding the key to freedom, really should know about this project and the underlying theme of what it is being accomplished by it.

Ahh, these skirts are golden! and they should be treated as so... glad you are filling that role. I (amy) am in New York at the moment... was at the most incredible vintage store called Narnia today... could have easily spent a grand (which I absolutely dont have) on incredible pieces. I edited it to a pair of boots and a dress. BUT i have been looking for that perfect floor sweeping skirt (that has an incredible print) that can be transformed in a matter of minutes. Love what you did with this... your splendid.

Never heard of WENDY TREMAYNE.... but now I will.

oh, and for a Lykke Li download:
