Shades of green

Finally found some clothing (and a dolly for good measure) at one of my fav spots - Thrift Town. A couple of months ago, TT gave out a coupon packet and the one for September was spend $15, get $5 off. I took full advantage of that picking up a pair of black jean shorts for my son, an Anne Taylor black skirt and chartreuse shirt for me, this Ireland Madame Alexanderkins and a couple of retro patterns. 
I somehow managed to pick up items in each of the color tag categories (with discounts ranging from 50 to 20 percent).  MA Ireland's apron and hat will receive a dose of bluing to bring out the white.

I have shed a few pounds on my NO butter/bacon/fried/sugary lifestyle change which means replacing my thrifted wardrobe. One of the beauties of wearing secondhand clothes is you don't have to calculate the cost when you send pieces back to the Great Thrift Shop Beyond. 

After the Anne Taylor skirt returns from the dry cleaners, I will model it for you. The garment has excellent "drape" (as we like to say in the biz).

Concluding with two Simplicity patterns from 1967
(wearing the green ...)

Hurray for second hand clothes, and well done on shedding a few pounds. I would like to follow your example but I'm having a bit of a sweet tooth for the moment ... xxx

Lucky you, 2 Thrift Towns to choose from. (I miss Thrift Town) I always had the best finds at the Del Paso Heights one.

Yay for being good and losing weight! You got a lot of stuff for your $15 spend, too! Love the green mac pattern. x
