Seven Dollar Masterpiece

$7 Masterpiece
The colors of this groovy original painting caught my eye at Out of the Closet and for $7 the little masterpiece was made mine. I realized that all five paintings I've collected, over the past few years, were specifically painted for someone, not for sale, yet they all ended up at garage sales or thrift stores. I think these artists need better friends.

My Fabulous Ferragamo Fairy Tale Find

Ferragamo on Fur

Back in 1999, I cut out and saved an article about Ferragamo reissuing a Maryjane flat originally designed for Audrey Hepburn in 1957, as a tribute to the actress for her 
70th birthday. Fast-forward 14 years et voila! I find the black suede version at 
Crossroads Trader, in brand-new condition, and ONLY $42! Mis-labled as two sizes larger, I felt like Cinderella as I still tried them on AND they fit my feet perfectly. 
Cue happy dance a la Funny Face.

I have two binders full of fashion wishes. 
Fingers crossed... Miss Absinthe
