Thread Show

This was my outfit on Sunday to the Thread Show. I got the inspiration for this from the lovely

I had loved this combination when I saw her post back in October of 2010. I hadn't worn my white ruffle mini skirt in ages and didn't think I ever would given how super short it is but when I saw her combo that was my opportunity to give the skirt one last chance. Of course I wasn't sure when and where I would ever wear this outfit. The thread show with my mom and sister was the perfect venue...

I love the idea of adding blue to the black and white ensemble. I bought this georgous necklace from the show and it was perfect with my outfit so kept it on over the scarf... 

This blue lizard purse is an old purchase from F21. Again with the idea of a diaper bag use which I have a few times while in Turkey.
The leather studded cuffs are from a site called Girl Props. They have very cool stuff.

SUNDAY'S ACTIVITIES: It was so nice to sleep in this morning since our kids were still at Grandparents' house. We enjoyed sipping coffee and lounging a bit. Then went and picked them up and met my sister and her boyfriend at a park near their house by the bay. Kids played with their puppy at the park and had a great time. Had lunch all together at Baja Fresh. My son couldn't get enough of his shrimp taco's.
After we put them for their nap I put on this outfit and left with my mom and sister for the Thread Show. We go whenever it comes to town. It is just such a cool place to find one of a kind items at resale prices. Today I bought a cool studded purse, necklace, a hat and orange fringe earings. My mom and sister bought very cool items as well. Here are some photos...

Mom and I infront of the DIY art wall... 

My sister purchasing these super cute vintage hand painted purses... 

These butterfly wing earings were very cool. Loved the colors but the length was just too long and the wing part kept turning. The lady said she will make them a bit shorter for the next show. If we go I am going to buy a pair for sure... 

Here are the other colors of the purse I bought. I really contemplated between the light grey one I bought and this bright teal color. The purses can be worn open or folded in half (magnet enclosure) as a clutch size purse. The strap is adjustable and removable. Very versatile and pretty. 

This was a very colorful display of hand pained wallets and clutches... 

Not the best photo but I bought this super cute grey fedora. One side is longer and has this black ribbon shaped like a bow. Mom bought the same style in light tan and my sister bought a classic fedora cut in blue denim. The lady was very happy with us for sure...
