I'll try to keep it short.

A couple months ago, I went by my grandmother's house and found her looking like she was on her deathbed. (She's already almost completely blind from a botched, double cataract surgery, and can barely walk, but was able to take care of herself pretty well up until this point.) So I nursed her back to health with my cooking skills, and have been spending pretty much every day with her since then, making sure she eats well and takes care of herself. I take her thrifting with me, but since she's old, I can't go out for 12 hour days like I used to.

On a more positive note, I've started taking consignments and that's kept me even busier.

Needless to say, this doesn't leave me much time to post, but I'll try to stay more active.



Anyway, on to the good stuff. Here are some of my favorites from the past couple weeks:

First up, I dedicate this find to Frenchy:

Curtis Jeré signed MCM wall art (not my pic - thing is so big I haven't had the chance to photograph it)
Processed By eBay with ImageMagick, R1.1.1.||B2||T0JKX0lEPTVjYTFhYjFlYTI0NzI0MzgwNTA4ODg5MDRmM2VkYTA1MDhlYmI1MmQ3M2ZjfHxTRUxMRVJfTkFNRT1tYWluc3Rtb2Rlcm58fE9SSUdJTkFMX0VCQVlfUVVBTElUWV9TQ09SRT00fHxDUkVBVElPTl9EQVRFPTcvMjcvMTMgNjoyMSBQTQ==

 

One of my favorite artists painting one of my favorite presidents in a good quality, framed print? Score.

 

 

AWESOME PRL Suede & Tweed bomber. MY SIZE icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

 

Hope your grams is doing OK!!!!

 

Great hall but for me those 3 are cool.

 

The Jere is $$$$ and that's a pretty cool one.

 

The print....hmm looks familiar lol8[1].gif

Multi-quote is spazzing out on my phone - I will reply to everyone in a sec. Just checked frenchy's blog and noticed he asked to be turned into another meme, so I'll start it off:

Valentino dark navy cashmere blazer/BB shirt

It looks like the shoulders are a tad too big.

Hidden working cuffs, at first I thought the jacket was unfinished.

 

 

O Hai!

The sleeves seem really long (they're even with the body) but I figured it might be worth the grab anyway. 

Please please please find the pants to this! It's way too cool to leave as an orphan.

Also, what's the size on the South Africa rugby? As a lifelong Springboks fan I'm interested if its a small.

PM coming your way once I find the jersey in one of my piles.

You gotta be kidding me.

I knew that'd offend the Trad among us.

And the GV should be about $50 or so.

Thank you, sir. I figured as much. It's kinda dirty, so I think I'm just gonna harvest the buttons.

You also have a PM coming your way momentarily.

Thanks, Brian. She's doing much better at this point.

Those are definitely at the top of my favorites--specifically the bomber. That one you sold is amazing, but my bomber is staying with me until I die. May even be buried in it.

Nice print. fistbump.gif

Sadly that was my thought too. Thanks for the input!

Thrifty tip: If you wanna take a chance on some possibly shell accessories. This won't last long. https://corter.myshopify.com/collections/frontpage/products/summer-grab-bag

Good luck. That's a pretty small waist size for a size 42 jacket.
