I went to the thrift store yesterday and found five great 100% cotton plaid tops for a couple bucks a pop (pics later maybe). Why so many? I did this so that I wouldn't spend the cash it would take to get this shirt -- which I love but just can't justify right now. Plus, if I'd gotten that shirt, I wouldn't have splurged and gotten this amazingly soft scarf from ellybeth's shop green olives design. And oh, did you notice the pine cone? You may recognize it because it's from Stephanie's Holiday Collection 2009. Of all that she's done, this collection with it's silks and plaids is probably my all-time favorite. And that's saying something.
