It's true, I have been told that I look like the "Spoon Full of Sugar" Disney character more than once. It's always when I am wearing this coat, lace up oxfords, and my hair up in a bun. One time I was wearing a blouse with a high, frilly collar and a good friend joked I looked just like Mary Poppins... later that same day I was thrifting and what should I find right on top of a pile of books? Yep. The pink, Disney edition of the book with Julie Andrews smiling from the cover.
I think it's hilarious, I am not offended at all - I like Poppin's style! I should try to find a hat to complete the look :) I was actually in a grade school production of the play as well; but I was a chimney sweep!! I was also once the Christmas Tree in 3rd grade, but that's another story.....
Look at my latest jewelry treasure! So in love with it. Chock full of Austrian crystal rhinestones and a very charming shape. You can't tell so good by my photo's, but it is the loveliest pastel spring colors! Now if it will actually make it feel like spring here in Portland.
coat - thrifted by Travis for me (!)
shoes - thrifted
dress - thrifted (you can't see it, but it's a lovely I.N.C. silk number!)
scarf - thrifted
brooch - thrifted and expensive, but so worth it!
