I took the day off work for a little rest and relaxation. Beefy and I went out to a late breakfast, attended an Auction by Maggie, ate a late lunch at The Public House, and saw The Avengers.

Jacket, Forever 21 (overdyed). Crochet top, Imaginary Voyage. Dress, Roundy Bay (thrifted). Belt, thrifted. Sandals, Lela Rose for Payless. Bag, vintage. Earrings, self-made.

When I lived in Okinawa, I loved to attend the Phai’s House of Jade auctions on base. I find bidding to be a bit thrilling and the people watching is always good. It was even better at Auctions by Maggie. Today was my first experience with bidding on first “choice” of items in a group. I picked up a ring, bracelet, and brooch through choice bids. I also bid on, and won, a tooled leather bag. This one is ostrich!

Overall, it was a good day-after-a-marathon: lots of sitting and eating. I’m well on the road to recovery from the race.

Incredible scores! That bag is amazing, and so is that lace top. I haven't been to an auction in years, but I always remember them being tons of fun.

Whoo! Another one for the coffee table book--your 'do sets the tone, and I love the leather/lacey vibe as well as the perfect harmony of the shoes and dress. I say again: Whoo!
