A New Skirt and a GIVEAWAY!!! Finally:)

New Skirt

I got a wild hair this morning and decided I HAD to have a new skirt for church today...so with an hour to go before I had to be AT church, I whipped up this little denim, a-line number. It is straight - I'm just standing crooked:) I used fabric that my step-mom had sent me and some vintage rust colored thread to add some denim styling to it. I love how it turned out. And I'm rocking my new thrift scored boots - Aerosoles for $4.00 and a shirt my mom gave me. This is my "thrift" style defined:)

And finally for my 500th post giveaway!!!!! I don't have pictures yet cause I'm still putting the boxes together but I am giving away 4 boxes FULL of goodies featuring the things I LOVE!!!!

Box #1 - will be filled with paper and paper crafting goodness
Box #2 - will be filled with fabric and sewing goodness
Box #3 - will be filling with scrapbooking goodness
Box #4 - will be filled with vintage goodness

Leave a comment to be entered in the drawing for these goodies and I will select the winners on March 1st. Post a link to my little giveaway on your blog and I'll enter you three times in the drawing:)

You're amazing! The whole outfit is very cute. I LOVE the boots. I never find any that nice at my thrift. :)

What a super cute (and super thrifty) outfit! The skirt is adorable - if I tried to sew something on such short notice, I'd make every mistake in the book!

Happy 500! Super cute outfit/super cute you, and you'd never guess you're 500. You don't look a day over 450.

How fabulous! Can't wait to see what ends up in the boxes and hope I win one.

Nice skirt...can't believe you made it less than an hour!!!

Sounds like you have a nice giveaway planned.

Trisha said...

Super cute! Way to go on the thrift look! I am Tara's sister Cricket and found you on her blog. I am doing a giveaway for my 100th post right now! Small world...I will be coming back to lurk more often!

Tracy said...

You just *whipped* it up in less than an hour. Well, that's much better than saying "I have to have a new skirt today. I think I'll go to Macy's and spend $90 on one."

Ever since having the little ones, I can't thrift shop like you anymore. I suppose I seriously need to get on the whole finding a babysitter thing.
