Tribal Print Shorts, Isabella Fiore bag and a Comic

"Knock, knock."  Pigtails said.
"Who's there?"  I asked.
"Orange."
"Orange, who?" 
Pigtails paused, smiled and said "mac n' cheese!"
Then she roared with laughter at her own joke.


GREEN  SHORTS - Mimi Chica (via Nordstrom Rack), $17
BLACK KNIT TOP - August Silk (Loehmanns)
STRIPED NUDE WEDGES - Payless, $20
BLACK PURSE - Isabella Fiore (thrifted), $3.50
PIGTAILS - Target hand-me-downs and Princess Sparkles' boots



My current obsession with tribal prints lead to the purchase of these fun shorts.  I really liked how they had an elastic waist and the little ruffle at the hem.  The black knit top is so comfy.  My sister, Polka Dots, accidentally left it in my bag when she flew back home to Hawaii.  And that magnificient purse was thrifted by my mom, Fair Isle, who got it at Salvation Army for $3.50!!!  I looked online and those designer bags go for $350-500! 


The jokester dresses her brother in a floral headband.

I'm so in love with that purse.  The leather is buttery soft and the details are beautiful!  No joke about it, it's the best thrift find I've ever heard of!!!

I think Pigtails has a fine future as a stand up comedian. The purse your mother found for you is a fantastic find.

pigtails is always so cute, She looks so adorable in the picture too. I like all your tribal pieces, this one is really cute with the little ruffles. Looks great with sandals...very chic for summer. That bag is a fabulous buy too. I am constantly amazed at how you managed to look fabulous all the time and still managed to blog even though you are busy with three young children. Nice legs by the way, you look like you are already back to your pre pregnancy figure...awesome!
