In the spirit of Thrift I have limited myself to two subscriptions...
Town and Country and Fashion magazine.
Country Living UK is purchased monthly at a local booksellers.
Magazines find their way to the table in the staff room at work so I can get my fill of In Style, Vogue and numerous other fashion magazines.
I am very impressed with Fashion Magazine...
"Canada's No. 1 Fashion and Beauty Mag"
I read the articles instead of just skimming through and checking out the pictures.
This was my last issue and I have just renewed for another year...
a great value too.
The classic style is what I aspire to...
here they showcase a few things that I love
a man size watch
a sturdy handbag/tote
a simple dress
and a bold piece of jewelry
isn't Audrey lovely?
There's a spread called "White Noise"
and the white fashions are modeled by stunning
femme d'un certain age
(62 going on 63)
She looks fabulous with her shiny silver hair and glossy red lips...
it's obvious that she takes care of herself
and after perusing her site I can see that she is an amazing gal.
Lovely daughter who celebrated her 32nd this week
spent some time shopping
and her trained eye
picked out a couple of real bargains
It helps that she has great eyesight
I would have missed what she zeroed in on...
9 carat chain
turquoise and seed pearl pendant
Such a sweet piece
cultured pearl pin
14 carat gold stamen tips
Lovely daughter is very lucky when it comes to finding treasures
her art history background helps
as does her knowledge of jewelry styles.
Years of watching The Antique Roadshow
perusing reference books
a keen eye
a desire to acquire
the love of the hunt
all work together
in her favour
she takes great delight
in wearing her treasured finds.
If you go to thrift or charity shops,
car boot sales
what has been your best find?
