Last week I did what I like to call a "Thrift Store World Tour". Which basically means that a friend and I jump in my car, map out as many thrift shops as possible, and hit them all. Extra points if you get a gigantic iced coffee to take along on the trip.
We had a very successful trip, hitting up about 6 thrift shops, and coming away with several bags of clothing and accessories. Sometimes I find things for myself to wear, and I am particularly excited - but other times I find things that are too big/too small/not quite "me" and thus are right for my Etsy shop. Such was the case this time. While I did manage to find a jacket for myself, the vast majority of things I found were for Velvet Bow.
For instance, I am in love love love with these fringed boots. But my size 8s baaaaarely fit into them (labeled a size 6, but they're probably a 7). I tried to convince myself as I limped around the shop that they fit. But alas, far too small. Not quite a win for me, but perhaps a win for some other girl out there. Ditto for this floral dress - tooooo small. Definitely for a size 0 out there, the waist just barely buttons, hence the belt over it. It's meant for a 24" waist, which I don't think I've had for a while.
So one step for Pretty Little Fawn, and one giant leap for the girls who end up owning these pieces.

PPS: Yes, I did buy the same IKEA Lappljung rug as every other blogger. SO SUE ME, I LIKE IT. Hahaha.
