Thrifted Pinterest - Fantasy Clothes

Every so often, I find myself lost in fantasy land.  You know, that fabulous land where you can afford to drop 8k on a dress, and you attend fancy dinner parties on the regular, and have a vacation home and everyday mansion...  Then, reality sets in, I remember that elusive truth that richer does not mean happier (plus, spending more than $20 on a piece of clothing makes me break out in hives), and I amuse myself with looking at designer pieces of clothing on Pinterest that I love and will never own.  Kind of like this skirt:

...or anything Alexander McQueen:
... or some fabulous tulle skirts like these:
Some days, though, I can have my feet in both worlds.  Those are the days that I happen to find Michael Kors heels at Goodwill, or stumble across a girl's size 16 dress at Once Upon a Child (no, really!) that's a 10 minute fix from being a frou-frou princess skirt just for me.  Those days are pretty rad, if I do say so myself!

Are there any pieces of clothing or designer labels you wish were in your fantasy closet?  Let me know in the comments, and we can daydream about them together!


  1. That leather skirt is amazing! I try not to pin a lot of dream clothing items on Pinterest, but I do have an "If Only..." board so clearly I don't do a good job of avoiding those pins!

    Your skirt is amazing; what a wonderful find. You look fabulous!


I'd love to hear your input!
