My bestie Lisa K. hosted a really fun beading party. We met at a lovely place called The Crazy Merchant .
The Crazy Merchant is part retail and part event space where you can learn how to make beautiful jewelry while giving to a charity of your choice.
We chose Safe House Denver for our charitable organization.
It was so nice to spend a Saturday meeting new friends and helping such a deserving organization. Every organization is struggling in this economy, which ones do you support?

Have you seen the Fall Tommy Hilfiger Campaign? Holy Moly.....The Jeep Wagoneer with the wood sides is my all time favorite car! I love the whole entire premise. Tailgating.....picnics.....skiing....plaid....the whole thing... Sooo I thought I would put together some Goodwill Finds to help you re-create you own little Hilfiger reality!
Do you love it?

Cut the buttons off KEEPING the stiching attached to the sweater fabric. That way you can see the stitching and it will look like you sewed them on your cozy but you just hot glued them on.
Just cut the sleeve off a little longer than you need it. Hot glue a little hem on the cut side. Hot glue your buttons back on, and Viola! Look how cozy your coffee can be!

As you can see it was $6.99 but I waited for the half off day and hoped that it would still be there. Hooray! There it was.
I thought that I was going to have to tape off all of the glass when I noticed that it was removable! Yessssss! (I hate prep work)
I pulled out the secret stash of spray paint.

I was working on a piece about Velvet for Fall. I just started pulling all of the velvet that I could find and stacked them up to photograph.
Oh guess what? This piece is Giorgio Armani and it just so happens to be in my size. Whhhhaaaatttt?
I spend WAY more that I make, this job is verrrry expensive, but I LOVE IT!
You can't find treasure if you don't go on the hunt!

I love the idea that you can buy a maxi dress from Goodwill, put a t-shirt with it, add a piece of leather for a headband, put a wildflower in your hair, and you have the most adorable iconic look for Halloween (or anytime). Love Child, Hippie Chic, 70's girl. You can call it what you like, I call it adorable, fashionable, frugal and FUN!

Here you go Molly. Notice that both Oprah and I are wearing the SAME Banana Republic Sweater. Hers was $70, mine was $4.99. All of the clothing that I'm wearing are brands that are affordable in the first place. The NYandCo pants that I bought still had the tags on them! Look Oprah it can be done.
*I didn't include any jewelry in my price, but I had money left over and the Leetsdale Goodwill had very similar jewelry in the front case. (I don't really wear jewelry very often so I left it out.)
You do have to go often, and I went looking with this outfit in mind. I shopped the Leetsdale, Littleton and Belleview stores to put this outfit together!

Outfit from Goodwill Posies from The Pleated Poppy
Pair this outfit with cowboy boots for a casual look or dress shoes for services!
(Laura probably didn't wear pink flip flops but the grass was sharp!
