we let kittens lick our hair

Behold, the Salvation Army finds. Almost everything was half off for their new year's sale, and I took full advantage (duh). The pictures are crap but I'll wear them soon anyway, just CALM DOWN GAWD TAKE A BREATHER.My mom found this 15 cent black lace top which will be great for layering. The vest was $5 and anything leathuhhhh is a-okay by me (minus a questionable pair of flared red leather pants with flames going up the sides I saw at the store too. Those really aren't necessary. At all. In fact, I might buy them just to burn them. Ooh look at me, beating the flamed pants at their own game!)
That was way too long to be a set of parenthesis, and for that I apologize. Let's carry on, shall we?This is the Rei collage, because the polka dotted skirt reminds me of Tao (especially once it's pinned/cinched/draped) and I plan on doing an insane Comme des Garcons DIY with the pink top and skirt. CDG and DIY don't really go together but I'll do my best (my best=try for 5 minutes then ask my mom to do it).
Oh, and the Tao skirt still had its tags on-H&M, $20. How much did I get it for? A buck, and brand new, too. B jealz.This granny blazer has the coolest buttons and sillhouette and collar lining. One of those buys that you know is too big but you just can't let it sit on the racks. Or worse, go into the hands of someone else, making them happy. No one is allowed to be happy except me and Belle, who I really bought these for. Hyuk hyuk hyuk hyuk. Before I send them I shall first try to pull off wearing shoulder pads 215743 sizes too big, kthanks. Same goes for the purple one. You wouldn't believe how rich the color is, the picture really doesn't do it justice.

And just to remind ya'll...We'll be answering other questions too, so if you're curious about anything just comment and we'll get to it!

Isabel said...

Duuuude, those are some sick finds! You will do great things with them, young grasshopper.

P.S. -Please burn the flame pants. Please! It would be so ironic!

P.P.S. -Your package hasn't come in the mail yet and now I have to go back to school so I won't see it til February! What is this shit? US Postal Service be DAMNED!

KD said...

Great finds, your salvation army is so cheap!! At mine, most dresses (even super cheap ones that cost, like, $7 retail) are $15 or more! Still, I went today, and bought three dresses and blazer. It's for charity, but it's for charity: i like that the money goes to charity, but its also for people who can't afford anything else, but when you're buying $15 - $40 dresses that fall apart fast, it's not actually that cheap. :-(

Maddie said...

that vest is awesome

Heatherskies said...

I'm loving the jacket-y blazer. I wish I was tiny. Tiny people fit in everything. And there's always your size left of garments.

Chester said...

Cool Finds!
I would love to come and watch your collaboration video but I'm not gonna be anywhere near a computer.
Maybe someone who is watching can set up their camera to record?

stylishdoll said...

I love the skirt, the leather vest is pretty cool and the skirt too :)
The purple jacket seems intesting for its purple color but..yeah; overwise, I don't know about how well it fits people...
So I guess I'll see in next posts :)

net said...

love your finds!

Holly Rasmussen said...

and drank our chalky lemonade?

Lily said...

On behalf of the population of the universe burn then burn again the red flame pants and then maybe stamp on it a couple of times. Can't wait till the video bummer waking up 6:00am to watch it but thats the price. Jealous of the Blue blazer I will locate it and steal it with my invisible hat.

TAVI, please go back to the salvation army, buy them hideous leather pants and BURN THEM! muahhaha. then you can record it and put it on your blog. oh, and you have to do a fire dance! you don't want anyone to buy it and commit such a fashion crime! ha, sorry for such a long comment about such a stupid thing!

Nadine said...

Burning the flame pants - hahahaha! Although I am kind of intrigued and wonder if I wouldn't secretly find them rather awesome . . .

Becca Jane said...
