Hi folks. Before I launch into my post I want to take a moment to thank Jean over at Dross Into Gold for nominating me for the Blogger Appreciation Award. It's such a great feeling to receive such a thing from a fellow blogger. I'll be preparing my acceptance speech for later this week. In the mean time, drop by Jean's. She really does turn dross into gold!
For the past few weeks I've been dimly aware that Macy's has been running a campaign in the fashion magazines called Brasil featuring colorful, tropical, beachy type clothing. It's super cute and the kind of thing I'd wear in a heartbeat (once it's made it's way to my favorite thrift store). I happened to be in Macy's this past weekend in search of some basic black pumps - not an easy thing these days with all the color going on. This particular store was promoting the Brasil line with Latin bands and professional dancers throughout the store. I must say it was lively and entertaining.
When I got dressed that same morning I had no idea that this would be going on or that I would even end up in Macy's. I happened to be wearing a white maxi dress with colorful, tropical looking insets and a denim vest with bright embroidery detail ( do I even need to mention everything was thrifted?). I felt like I fit right in with the theme of things. Naturally, I had a look around at some of the items and felt a huge surge of satisfaction when I looked at the prices compared to what I spent on my "Brasil" clothes. I felt like a brazillion bucks!
