76° and Sunny for my Christmas Party. Seriously?

Okay, it was really nice out today and I don't want to be one of those creeps who brags about Southern CA weather when everyone else is freezing their yule logs off. I do, however, like a little chill in my Holidays. Enough of that.

I work at The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising as a teacher and speaker and today we had our Christmas Party or Holiday Party or Seasonal Greetings Party whatever is most appropriate. I love working there. They are very good to us and I love the campus.

I also like when people show what they are wearing and when most of it is thrifted or vintage. Usually when I try to brag to people about how cheaply I bought my clothes they just look at me like I'm cheap. But not you, dear bloggers!!! You are kindred spirits. Here's what I wore to the party:

Jacket-yard sale $1.00 (I'm serious)
Boots-thrift store
Necklace-thrift store
Black rhinestone bracelet- thrift store $2.00

My 14 year old daughter took these pics. Didn't she do a good job? The one above was taken in the shade. Here's how sunny it was:


  1. Gorgeous! Thrift rocks! I didn't know you worked at the Fashion Institue of Design and Merchandising. How exciting! You daughter is a fantastic photographer.

  2. Darling!

    Oh yes, kindred spirits ahoy! I was just talking to my Husbie yesterday about how the world is shifting to DIY and vintage and thrifting etc etc etc and he pointed out that 'all your bloggy friends' are in the minority... Eep!

    All the best for 2010!
