Picked up this handwoven throw at "The" thrift store. Not sure how much it cost. The nun there always just gives me some seemingly arbitrary total when I check out with her. This + a spool of ribbon + 2 peices of fabric = $7.

You know me. I love anything folksy, retro, handmade, traditional, strange. So the thrift store is the only place I really enjoy shopping. Now the mainstream has picked up on these asthetics over the past 5-6 years, I know. But yeah, I guess this southwest native theme is in right now....huh, news flash.....And you thought you were reading a style blog!

No, but really, I think I did know that it was hot. Maybe subconsciously when I designed the Kaia dress. There's a little more of that theme in the collection I'm putting together right now.


  1. Tell me of this thrift store! I am a junkie for thrift stores, and I would love to find a new one!

  2. Hmm... I'm very secretive when it comes to my thrift haunts. If you come find me at Art vs Craft I'll tell you in person.
