Transition Outfit and DIY Brooch

Happy Monday!
 When I thrifted this baby-poop colored Cardigan,
(by Mossimo), I knew it would come in handy with pale pinks. 
And sure enough, I had the perfect scarf to match. We are in fashion transition here in the mid-west. As I type, the thunder is rolling through bringing us a bunch of rain.
   Right now, I am in a neutral, earth-toned mood. I've also been doing some DIY's with old military items and did this little pin today, too. It started with a super large gold safety pin and bunches of trinkets that were laying around. There's even a 
fancy button on there :) It's an easy way to show off your little treasures...
Gold plus Silver is so much more interesting.
   And a Gabriel Brother's store just went into our neighborhood! I had never heard of it, but had to check it out last night and WOW! Name brands, (some seconds), and faboo prices. Designer brands that didn't 'sell' for the Dept. store prices, now at low, low prices for us... Since I am still pledging to be thrifty and buy pre-loved merchandise (when possible), I only bought some basics like tall leggings, an H&M tee ($3.99), designer earrings and other accessories for $3.99 each and SHhhh....
A new hat and Forever 21 nude shoes ( hat:$5.99 - shoes:$12.99 )
I wasn't really that bad .....
Though I may need to find a new route to the grocery...
Have a great week, everyone!

Reva--that sounds like a great new store. I want to go shopping with you! Admiring the brooch and trying to think where I could find a giant safety pin for starters...

Great colors. I love the scarf with the houndstooth. "Off" are fabulous, aren't they?
