Hearts and thunderbirds

I'm getting better at not always reaching for my jeans this winter.  This is one of those outfits that is cute, comfy and also plenty warm.  I found the skirt for $3 and I am a sucker for anything with hearts on it.
 This thunderbird belt is from 1977 I picked it up almost 20 years ago for a buck! The jacket was also thrifted for $5 and has sparkly silver thread in it.
I need a haircut and I'm obviously disgusted with myself right here.
Ok I'm over it!
I love mini skirts and leggings!
 A sweet skeleton Betsey Johnson necklace.
I think a lot of her jewelry and clothes end up on ebay from the suppliers in China who actually make the product for her.  This necklace was all of $7 on ebay in the stores it would have been almost $50.
I'm so happy the week's almost over.  This weekend Chris and I get to dress up and go out with our neighbors to their country club for a fancy dinner of lobster and prime rib...woo woo!!!!  Sunday we are bringing home my antique vanity that was Grandma Barbara's mothers, I think it's from the 40's.  I can't wait to show it to you.  I wanna paint it pink!

Claudia has just seen your skeleton necklace and said "Awesome! I want one!" And she's after your trainers too.
You do look good in a mini skirt, Krista, and that is a fabulous belt.
Enjoy your fancy dinner, and I can't wait to see your vanity!
Love'n'lobster! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Awesome belt and awesome necklace!!! I have seen quite a few pieces of 'Betsey Johnson' jewellery from sellers in China but I've always assumed they were fake... I didn't realise they made her stuff but I suppose in this day and age most things are made in china!

Can't wait to see this old dressing table of yours! Eeeek! xxx

I heart the heart skirt, tough girl belt, and blingy Betsey necklace. I actually got an adorable pair of BJ sugar skull earrings on eBay recently, but with how cheap it was I couldn't help wondering if it--and 99 percent of the Betsey Johnson goodies up for bid--were fakente. Well I'll never know I guess. And off topic, love how you manage to keep the pink in your hair so vibrant and bright.
