South Western Flat Boots

I have been looking everywhere for a fun pair of comfortable and affordable flat boots. I finally found these blanket print boots on sale and couldn’t be happier. They’re South West-Quirky (like me) and they punch up any basic outfit. I can’t wait to trek to the Mountainous Desert this Christmas wearing these! Fun, fashionable, super comfortable and a great buy!

Party Accessories

Holidays are to sparkle like cookies are to frosting-you can’t have one with out the other. In the next few days, I’ll be wearing extra sparkly accessories to toast the occasion. I’ll be sporting brand new DV by Dolce Vita Pumps like the ones below (except in silver), I’ll be rocking a sparkly scarf when it’s cold and a crystal collar to show off my neckline at holiday parties! Glitter, Twinkle and Sparkle this holiday season with amazing party accessories!

Red Lion Necklace

I love Ebay. What a great concept-buying, selling, someone else’s trash becomes my treasure, and consuming recycled goods. It’s a Thriftshopcouture favorite, especially for finding vintage jewelry. One evening I was hunting around Ebay for a vintage bauble, when I came across this Red Lion chain necklace. Not only does it have that vintage feel, but it provides a pop of color to a basic outfit and the lengthy chain draws attention to the d├ęcolletage and abs!
