Thrifting Day, No Trivial Matter

Today was a “free” day in New York, with no big plans. So I made some. I planned to visit my favorite thrift stores until my feet gave out, then spend the evening with Sandy playing Trivia at Dempsey’s Pub.

The shopping was good! I’ll have some pictures to post later, but my favorite find was a floral cotton skirt by Ralph Lauren, with tags, for $10. I also bought a big honkin’ silk flower to wear on my birthday, just to amp up the fun factor.

Here I am outside one of my favorite thrifts, The Cure in the East Village. Lovely clothing and wonderful people there. I’m wearing my Trivia team’s shirt – we’re the Rodents of Unusual Size. So, not too trendy today, but loving every minute of it. ☺

My male companion is the strong, silent type.

Hope you are all well and staying fabulous,
