you're breaking my heart You're shaking my confidence daily

Sorry, my formal apologies. I don't post as often as I should from now on I will post every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Besides that I went to Maine yesterday. I ventured far from my usual haunts (the goodwill around the corner) to another goodwill 120 miles away. I'm unimaginative in a weird way. I met up with some family and we traipsed to a couple of thrift stores. I guess the pictures explain the rest.
(incase you want further explanation)
army boots
vintage silk bowties
vintage nude heels
Posts of me wearing these in outfits to come soon.

You are now entering the twilight zone.....

My dad's birthday is coming up. So I decided to send him a surprise. I don't live with my dad I live with my mom and step-dad, so if i don't tell my dad about the surprise he would have no way to find out about it before it gets there. So the surprise is this fantastic pair of white 80's men's shoes. They were perfect after I washed the grime off them (found in thrift store)
But I didn't want to stop it at just that! I took a fine point sharpie and doodled all over them. My father has a penchant for the candy Peanut Chew's so i drew the logo on them. Also if I'm already bragging I drew a purdy dandy Twilight zone thingy on them! Also this is the outfit i wore yesterday.

Agnes b leather vest
really really old wool army/farm shirt.
dads hat
bow tie
My uncle Micheal's leather jacket. He got it in England when he was young. I feel so happy that i was gifted it! I'm lucky!
P.S i don't know why the pictures say that they are from 2008.... Something messed up with the camera? or maybe iphoto?
