Thrift Find: Snakeskin Clutch and Red Maxi Skirt

I recently found a dope 70's horse pendant necklace, vintage 80's snakeskin clutch, and the dynamite red front pleat maxi skirt. I don't know which one of my new thrift finds I love the most. I am seriously in thrift treasure heaven. The Vegas trip was very fruitful.

You know I have quite the fascination with kitschy animal fashion. I almost lost my sh*t when I saw the horse head necklace. It's alot like the wolf earrings and bracelet but it's a friggin horse. It has stripes like a zebra but the color of a horse. There's a similar one on etsy that really does look like a zebra. I wonder if all of the pieces were created my Lee Sands. Must do some research.

This 80's clutch is from Goodwill. Also, thrifted while in Vegas. According to my Google search, these are one of a kind and no two are alike. Score. I'm trying to scale back on the bags because I have no place for them but I could tell it was special when I picked it up. The patchwork design is really unique.

As I was perusing the inside the bag looking for a forgotten wad of cash, I found a toothpick.  The wrapper says "Life is short, eat out often". Totally not the fortune I was expecting but that's some great advice!

Cost: $4

The red maxi skirt is so rich in color that I didn't even try to put it in the washing machine. I dry cleaned it even though it's made of cotton.

It's an odd length on me. I don't care. Looks fiercer when I sit. It's the front slit revealing unexpected leg action. It's pretty funny because when I sit in the skirt my legs look so long but when I stand up my legs look like tree stumps.

Cost: $2

Great skirt, great clutch. I am an Ozzie starting a US trip later in the year in Vegas - I will have to pick your brains for the good places to thrift. I don't think my boy realises how much thrifting I will need to do on the trip!!! Thanks so much for sharing.
