Sometimes I find AMAZING things in my thrifting adventures that require no refashioning, but I still want to brag about them. 🙂
Take this sweet mini-haul I procured for $3:
Those copper mugs will be housing moscow mules (my favorite cocktail of the moment) oh so very soon.
No alterations required! I paired them with a black shell I’ve had for over a decade and my sweet leopard-print booties.
When I looked at the label of my new trousers, I was intrigued.
I found this website that told me a great story about Stephanie and Joe Koret, the Trikskirt, and Slim Hip Slax (are these yellow pants those very slacks…er…slax?). Stephanie designed Koret’s clothing and within two years, they made 2 MILLION dollars.
Pretty impressive for the 1930’s.
While Joe and Stephanie have since passed away, the Koret brand is still around, known today as Jax under the Kellwood Corporation.
I wore my new slacks…er…slax to lunch, where the waitress high-fived me when she found out I bought them for one lil dollar. 🙂
