Happy Balentime's Day

In honor of Valentine's Day, I decided to share some slightly-valentine themed items I wore over the weekend.

I found these incredible red, suede boots at my favorite thrift store last summer.  I paid....wait for it....three dollars for these amazing boots!

I'm guessing they're at least 30 years old.  They're in excellent condition and they fit my feet perfectly.

Here comes the tragedy: although I purchased them last summer, I just wore them for the first time last weekend!  Honestly, I was a little afraid to wear them.  I didn't know what they would go with and just couldn't quite envision an outfit with them.  But now that I've worn them I kind of want the wear them every day.  I can imagine making them a staple this spring and summer with skirts and dresses.

Next, I'd like to show you the newest trend: FRIENDSHIP NECKLACES!  I don't think it's an actual trend yet, but since friendship bracelets are such a big deal right now, I decided friendship necklaces should be the next big thing.  They're simple to make and the possibilities are endless!

Finally, I'll tell you how stinkin' cheap my outfit was.  As you know, the boots cost me $3.  I borrowed the dress and bought the denim shirt at a garage sale for $1.  I made the necklace out of embroidery floss I had on hand, and I salvaged the pendants from an old broken necklace, which was originally given to me as a gift.  This brings me to a grand total of $4.  I love feeling cute for almost no cost. 

Now, you be inspired!  Go thrift store shopping.  Make a piece of jewelry out of old stuff you have laying around.  Make some adjustments to an old piece of clothing.  It's so much fun, my friends.

Happy Balentime's Day, homies!
