Skippy Says: If You Love A Woman (OOTD)

Ryan and I celebrated our one year wedding anniversary a few months back by going to the Treasure Island flea market for part of the day. What? You have your idea of romance, and we have ours. Fine, this is just mine, but I married a pretty nice guy who knows the way to my heart and is willing to indulge me. I haven't been back since, but I scored so many great items (including the earrings and purse in the outfit below) that I really want to go back soon. Oh, and a really nice vendor gave me a free plate! I have no idea what I'm going to do with it since we got a set of beautiful matching china for our wedding, but you know the immigrant in me can't say no to free anything.

  15. Congratulations on your one year anniversary!! That was really sweet that he brought you to the flea market!! Sounds like a date made in Heaven!!

    Love your blue and yellow combo, and that purse find is so cute!!

    Maybe, you could hang the plate on your wall (if it's really unique) or use it as a tray for your jewelry!

    Have a fab day! Of to look for your raccoon blouse!

  16. I haven't gone to a flea market ever because there aren't any here. GOsh, it seems like I do live in the middle of nowhere, huh? Those are gorgeous finds! I really should just drive out and look for some to go to!

    Belated congratulations on your anniversary! :)

  22. Thanks Laura!! Where do you live? I'd say if it's within a few hours drive, it's worth it. I got so many great things for very little money :)

  25. I live in central IL, and there are a lot of flea markets here in IL, but not in my immediate area. I will have to look for some indoor ones to visit during the winter! :)
