It's a wrist soiree! January's giveaway is a set of 4 gently used but fabulous bracelets:
1 chain link bracelet
2 chain clasp bracelets
1 stretchable rhinestone bracelet
Estimated value: $25+
I went to an estate sale over the weekend and found some great vintage costume jewelry. I was still on the hunt for what the giveaway would be. I was looking for something that represents Thriftanista in the City's main focus -- thrifting fabulous finds. I also wanted to find something that
I would wear if no one enters the giveaway would appeal to most. The bracelets are old but they have a very current look so I hope you like them as much as I do.
As you may know, I struggle in the accessories department. I usually become overwhelmed putting it all together and end up taking it all off. So, I am pretty pleased with how this group came together with all the textures, thicknesses, and shapes.
I paired them with my standard mama attire - shirt and pants. I also pulled out the snakeskin and leather purse I thrifted ages ago but never carried. I don't know if it matches or not. I saw it and decided today was the day I take it for a spin.
The clip-on 80s earrings were thrifted a couple of days ago. I bought two bags of random cast off hodge podge jewelry for approximately $3. I plan to re-purpose most of the pieces and experiment more with diy jewelry.
Sidenote: I'm still down with do you, V. Photobomb and mean mug away!
On my feet, another great pair of booties from Betsey Johnson via Amazon. I got them for $30. Retail value: $130. I've had them for a couple of weeks now without having anyplace to wear them. I'm hibernating like a bear.
Just like with the purse, I said "forgetaboutit" and wore them just because. Car travel only, of course.
Now the giveaway details!
