We had a splendid St. Patrick's Day starting out nice and early in search of the pot of gold or two at our regular Recessionista Saturday hunting haunt -- The Housing Works Thrift Buy the Bag Event. With help from my little leprachaun kitted out down to her toes in her leprachaun shoe socks from her Guammie who probably got them at Goodwill or Target, we were in the proper Irish Spirit. Her fleece is Land's End, Green Stripe-y hoodie target - she could barely get it over her head so after bin diving - in to the donation bag it went, and she topped it all off with the bow we saved off a pressie for just this thrifty purpose.
One of the many pots o' gold found was a Louis Vuitton bag - yes a real one that cost basically nothing. Ay the luck of the Irish.
In keeping with the "going green" theme, we planned our big St. Patrick's Date Night with The Lorax. An adorable, creative, spirited film who's saving the trees message did not go unnoticed by our beloved little Leprechaun. Her 3D Lorax Theater-wear: green Mini Boden Sweater, brand new silk green scarf and green cloth necklace were all found in the bins today. Our fave green apple print dress is J. crewcuts. I wore my truly INCREDIBLE Dyed Green Tibetan Lamb fur coat, I got from the bins -- so perfectly inspired, it was for the night, I might add, that some of The Lorax Project guys at the theater said to us, is your coat made of Truffula trees?
