The Problem with Patterns II: The Recovery ReFashion

This week’s thrift score haul is an eclectic mix!

What have we here?

We have a not-very-exciting, but still comfy purple minidress for my upcoming vacation (!!!!). I really don’t need any more clothing for this trip. I’m probably going to be changing clothes more times per day than the ladies of Downton Abbey as is.

Next, I scored a a neat chevron-printed beach tote. It may just look like an ordinary bag, but look what happens when you zip up that front pocket:

So cool!
So cool!

I couldn’t resist that adorable alabaster owlie. If you were to walk into my apartment, you’d discover I have quite a thing for owls. :)

Whoooooo goes there?
Whoooooo goes there?

I scored 4 each of the following glasses that may or may not be crystal.

Just too lazy to bring them all to my couch

I’m happy to replace the “got it for free from the vinyard” wine glasses with these much classier ones. :)

The tray was my favorite find!

Hmmmnnn...
Hmmmnnn…

I gasped when I found it, because it matched an ice bucket I found back in August!

What are the odds??? The brand is Courcoc. Here’s that will tell you more about this mid-century California brand.

The ones that got away…

Of course, I can’t buy every interesting thing I see in the shops. Here are a few of my favorites that didn’t end up coming home with me.

If that teapot had a lid, this set would be MINE.
