We had so much fun wearing our thrift-shop prom dresses at the Pacific Northwest Endurance Rides' convention last year that we decided to repeat this experience...
|One rack in one store. We hit SIX thrift stores today in search of fancy frocks!|
Note that this is a HORSE-RELATED post: we met up at Fish Creek Farm, and van-pooled to thrift stores together. If you look carefully, you will see a horse through the front windscreen of the van.
|Say "hi" to Rocky as we drive past him!|
|Dory looks awesome.|
|Me, in the same dress, looking piratical!|
|What is the best part of the outfit? The sports bra? Or the socks?|
|I was sooooooo sad that this purple dress didn't fit me!!!|
For the really good dresses, we all squoze into them.
|The gold dress didn't fit. Too bad!|
We did stop for lunch. Then...back to the thrift shops! We still needed to find shoes
|Cute, but perhaps not seen to advantage with sport socks?|
|Not much in the world more fun than red shoes.|
We also found some, er, supportive foundational garments.
|A lovely example of a holder-upper/squisher-inner|
Who knew that you could find such a wide variety of squisher-inners, holder-uppers, strapper-downers, smusher-flatters, and fluffer-uppers at thrift stores? Amazing!
Last stop: accessories.
|Patty's hat is pink leopard print. Mine has skulls and crossed bones.|
Hats, gloves, and tiaras. We are going to be fancy ladies, fer shore.
Fortunately, we still have two weeks until the event--there's plenty of time to recover from our marathon shopping trip!
|We are 'sausted.|
Life. Is. SHINY!
and also, good.
(if you're going to be in the Portland, Oregon area on January 20-22, consider coming to the PNER Convention. Speakers and vendors are free! Details HERE.)
