Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy

 Necklace - ???

Woo! Final turning in of work, and a good little thrifting day. I switch out for flats while shopping, and managed to find two pairs of jeans, a top, a dress, and a pair of men's trousers for under $5. I feel so accomplished today!

This skirt is from last month's thrifting adventures. It's got a nearly metallic army green color and a very retro fit. I wish I owned a curling iron so I could have done some wavy 40s hair, but alas - I do not. One thing I appreciate about growing up with my grandparents is the exposure to "Oldies" music. I don't have very much knowledge of pop culture before the 90s, but I love some oldies.

  1. That skirt looks great on you. My Grandparents didn't talk about music very often, but my parents had a huge record collection.

  2. When I lived with my grandparents, I just got marches blared in the room above mine on any morning after I'd been out what they deemed too late the night before (which ranged from (9:30 to 4:00 am, there was no difference to them!).

  4. The color and fit of that skirt is amazing! There is something about spring that makes me want to listen to oldies too... I think it's that my dad listened to them in the barn and I would finally venture out there to hang out once the snow melted.

  6. @ Shygirl - 99p day. Seriously they're the best. Utilizing the sale days is the key.

  7. Do you need some 80's music education? Cuz I can help with that! Sadly. As I am old. Anywho, try Duran Duran, circa 1980's. I think you'll like them?

    And I like this outfit! That skirt is perfect for you.
