Jackpot!

Hello!

I've had a dream day for finding things.
This is what I bought :)

First of all, these were a present from a friend! How lucky am I?



These are my second favorite S&P's.



Cute blouse



Witchery singlet



Italian Leather shoes Mmmm



Basic chuck on old tee, got one in red too.





Amazing dress! The lace back is completely fabulous.





Then I hit the jackpot. Some lady had donated a bunch of her old clothes and also this dress mannequin. Very flower power and very me. Can't wait to start pinning and sewing on her.





2 Piece dress and jacket in perfect condition.







This is a home made two piece which has had so much care gone into it.
I know it looks pretty frumpy and gross, but I think when winter comes I'll be able to work with it. The fabrics great so I'm going to have to.







YUM! How great is this maxi dress. It has a few stains but they'll come out with a dose of sard. The beading is so heavy and lovely.

And then, I got this eBay package on my door when I got home.
Its a vintage female safari suit. (the flared pants are underneath) It's so so so good. It cost me $4. Bargain.

Okay Trish, I have to level with you and get it off my chest - I hope you forgive me but I am as jealous as all hell. I am not really the jealous type and never try and keep up with others but the green eyed monster in me came out today when I logged in and viewed your dressmakers dummy. And in that cool fabric and all. I yelled out to my hubby and said I was so upset look what Trish has scored. He just replied it is okay honey. But Trish it is not okay I want it! Seriously, yes I am a bit envious but I am so glad you have it because you will love it to bits. Gosh I hope I can sleep tonight and get over this Kazza

The dressmakers doll is awesome. I heart the pattern... I got one a few weeks ago myself. After 3 years of looking because new ones don't go down to my size.

It's always the best when a group of things have been donated by the one lady. I like/love imagining the crazy things they did.

Angel wings - Yes I love love paisley! Its so colourful and interesting.
I loveee the dresses you bought!
Looking forward to seeing the sleevless one.

Kazza - I fully laughed out loud at that comment. Im sorry I took such pleasure in your jealousy!
I even showed my boss your message and she laughed too!
Will it hurt anymore if I say that it's also made in England? Still with its plastic wrapper on it?
Or will it hurt less if I say I still think it was a bargain, though I did pay a fair amount for it? It cost me $140. I know, so not a masssssive bargain. I mean if I had payed $5 or something ridiculous for it it'd be worth the pain... but you can feel a bit better for it being at that price? haha. Eitherway I hope you did sleep okay!

Strikematch - Oh thats interesting about the size part of it! Where did you get yours and how much was it? If you don't mind saying!
I didn't know it was so restrictive in sizes!

I LOVE when a lady donates all her things. It's like an egg hunt on easter. A similar panic to what you had as a kid desperate to find the most eggs first.


Missa - I know I nearly died too!!
But the price was rather steep for me so it wasn't the greatest find ever! I do love it though because it's got asthetic quality when it's not being used as well as practicallity! :)
