Thanksgiving Costume

Here is the costume I chose to wear to my sister's house for Thanksgiving. I always have to dress up around my family to live up to my name as "Auntie Gaga." It is better than what they called me when I had a short bowl cut 2 years ago "Uncle Phia," ok, so maybe I gave myself that name but they loved it. I finally got to wear this dress I thrifted during the summer. I was a "wise Latina" this summer, thrifting for all seasons. It has given me the upper hand on my self diagnosed seasonal depression as I get to wear all the awesome sweaters, coats, and other warm attire I've acquired. I don't get as upset that it's cold. I know I know, I'm boo hoo-ing over here over my cold California winter. On with the show.



They called me Cleopatra. I've heard worse.


It's a dress, I just wore tights and boots.



I loved the back of this dress.

So I gots to keep it real with you, the dress was part wool and acrylic so it did make me itchy scratchy in some places, but for $1.98 I can't really complain right? I was glad to get this number off the rack and into the world again. Viva la thrifting,

  15. This is a beautiful dress!! I love it. I can't believe you found it for so inexpensive. I thrifted recently and the dresses were all $7.99. GROSS! Since when, right? Goodwill needs to calm down with their prices and you need to tell me where you're shopping! lol. Btw I wear size 7 but many of the shoes I'm selling on ebay are both 7 and 7.5 because I used to be 7.5.. I guess my feet shrunk. Stay tuned for more ebay goodies! :P
