Wild Wild West

So, our family loves to party! Our granny turned 90 years old this summer and we threw her a wild west themed party. We had so much fun! Check out our western inspired thrift store finds. (Notice Granny is sporting Baby Phat jeans!)




The Fabulous Queen of Thrifting- Ruby Lee (90 yrs old)

Everything the 4 of us has on was thrifted (except Grace's hat).

Tea Time

I thrifted this vintage dress earlier this year. It was mid-calf length before I turned it into a mini "bubble" dress by sewing elastic to the bottom hem. I added a belt, fishnet tights, super high heels and a fascinator like the Brits wear. I wore this to my church's Pump Up Your Hattitude women's brunch.
