Fashion Friday #1

17 Sep

I think on Fridays I’m going to try and post an outfit photo that features at least one item I bought second hand. Sometimes they’ll be vintage, sometimes not. Buying second hand is important to me. Not only does it save me money (whoo!) but it helps the environment by reducing the demand on new items.

I bought myself a mini tripod so I can take outfit photos now, whoo!

This is the other dress I had as an option to wear for my anniversary dinner with John. You know, the one that NO ONE voted for? LOL. Well, I like it a lot and I’m guessing it just doesn’t photograph well on the hanger. I had to give it some love today.

This isn’t the best photo to show it, but it has a cool print of houses and city streets and things like that. I’m pretty sure it is vintage, but I don’t know how old. The tag says “Crocodile Ladies” but I wasn’t able to find anything about that brand online.


Dress – Vintage from Salvation Army (1/2 off!)
Tights – Target (clearance last year)

The Pyrex Collective

15 Sep

I was originally going to post this here, asking if anyone knew about this piece; if it was Pyrex, etc, but then I found The Pyrex Collective, and a post that included a lid just like mine!

I thought the idea of a group of people blogging about Pyrex was so cool, and I wanted IN! So I emailed Erin asking if I could join, and she said yes! I wrong my first post yesterday detailing how my Pyrex love* started, and going into the “history” of this piece.

PYREX! ❤

*Weird that I love Pyrex, but never posted about it here, right? Well, that’s because this summer is the ONLY time I’ve ever found Pyrex while thrifting, despite keeping my eye out for it for YEARS, and I haven’t blogged about those pieces yet.
