Hey everyone ! I hope you enjoy this small, yet fun post. I do not know how often I will be posting in the future being that I start student teaching. I will try to post at least twice a week.

Great little vintage cigarette case which I use when I go out for my cell and ID.

Great vintage turban from Rags to Riches Upscale Consignment in Delaware.

Great vintage bag I picked up at Etsy.com. I love how it has all the cities of the world on it. Its a great barrel shape like the LV Speedy.

Student Teaching

I start my student teaching experience next week ! I am having the hardest time finding an outfit to wear for the first day. I want to look professional yet be my eclectic self. We shall see how it turns out but I want it to be memorable.

Vintage and Thrifted Belts

All the belts below were under $5 except for the red anchor belt which was $10, talk about some sweet deals.

Woven leather from Argentina.

Really awesome hinged belt, reminds me of an old door hinge.
Pretty purple and aqua, so cute.

My personal favorite, a vintage belt from Rags to Riches Consignment in Delaware.

Some belts I have collected over the years.

Seven beauties. All but the red belt are from either the Goodwill or the Salvation Army.

Some vintage jewelry I have picked up in the past....

These are some pictures of my vintage jewelry collection, please enjoy.

This is a really cool piece I found at the Goodwill for about $2. I saw a white one on Chictopia as past of their Chicpoints tutorial and was wondering if maybe this is more special than I thought ???
These beads are a pretty color blue and very very heavy. I found this at the Goodwill for about $2.

Three pretty rings. The first (turquoise) was my boyfriend's grandmother's ring. I am not sure how authentic the stone is, but I love it nonetheless. The second ring is from the end of a spoon and the last is a fork ring, pretty cool right?
This picture does not do this necklace any justice, but this is one of my favorite pieces of jewelry. The stones are a light purple hue, yet almost transluscent. Purchased at The Green Eyed Lady in West Chester, PA.

Great piece of Robert Rose costume jewelry. I found this at The Green Eyed Lady in West Chester, PA. The store specializes in vintage accessories, mostly jewelry.

Awesome cameo earrings with a slight bow and pearl detail. A great vintage find from Malena's Vintage Boutique in West Chester, PA.

Beautiful flower pin given to me as a gift from my old voice lesson instructor. It was her grandmother's and she knew how much I loved fashion.

This is a cameo pin I picked up a Malena's Vintage Boutique in West Chester, PA for about $10-$15, I can't really remember... It is beautiful though and it gets a lot of second looks.
Hope you enjoyed these pictures... I am thinking about doing a post on my collection of furs next. They are old and vintage (with other people's monograms) and I don't support killing animals

Too Early

I am up entirely too early this morning. Should be posting some of my vintage jewelry collection later on. And, yes, 7:30 a.m. is too early for me... I don't do mornings.

Some other finds from the Newark Salvation Army

This is a great little blue and white blazer, love the polka dots, with a fake hanky. It is shoulder pads, which I can sometimes loathe. This time I decided to let them in for structure.

This is a cute little dress by ???? , there is not a tag anywhere in site, all I know is it fits me great. I will always love a good polka dot. The name makes me think of the Fabulous Beekman Boys and Polka Spot the llama !

Salvation Army Finds

Today I did some thrifting at the Salvation Army Store in Newark, DE. I found three great belts and four clothing items. One of the belts was woven brown leather from Argentina. You can see it in this picture.
