Hi melody-mae. I absolutely love your thrift finds. Aren't you lucky that it's always in your size?! I love anything with leopard skin on, so I loved the scarf, and I see that you made it yourself!

You made that leopard print scarf? I've been looking every where for a scarf like that. Its difficult to find a nice leopard print sometimes and your scarf is exactly what I had in mind! You inspired me to try to make my own lol.

@Connie-I did make the was so super easy. I found the fabric and just made a hem all around it and poof there it is. I did make it quite long but I love it like that! :)

i love the argyle paired with the leopard and the black and white shoes paired with the colorful outfit! both super fun outfits! have fun with the grandbabies!

Ms. Becky said...

oh, I love seeing what outfits you put together. your enthusiasm is wonderful and so much fun. if we lived closer, we'd be girlfriends, I just know it. my favorite item is the blue tights - my closet if full of clothes and I live in blue jeans. you inspire me to dress once in awhile. happy weekend to you Melody-mae. and happy Veterans Day too.
