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!

  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!
