Yesterday was a gorgeous day for a Backyard Boutique!
Shannon and I had a great set up with over 200 pieces ranging from shoes to bags to pants to skirts to dresses – and of course She Does Create accessories! I was so happy to meet some of the wonderful women who read VV Boutique Style and connect with old friends! Thank you all for a fabulous day! For anyone who wasn’t able to make it, don’t despair! Sister Thrifters will hold another Backyard Boutique and meanwhile you can find excellent online thrift shopping through our Instagram and Facebook – and there are big tech plans to get the pieces on the Sister Thrifters website as well so stay tuned!
We had a pretty swank dressing room set-up, if I do say so myself. (Um, on behalf of Shannon since I didn’t do much but offer my height.)
Perfect opportunity to capture my OOTD!
Shoes from my closet, B.T. (Before Thrifting)
Sunglasses don’t always hide crazy eyes.
I wore this skirt for the Backyard Boutique Sale because it has pockets.
I now wonder if I can live without pockets in my skirts and dresses…
It was a busy day once we officially opened the, uh, alley (!) so I didn’t have the opportunity to capture everyone on film but here are some highlights!
My friend and colleague Stephanie scored a skirt with pockets along with other dresses that show off her slimming-summer figure!
This pretty lady scored many great pieces including one of my fave dresses that I had to pass on because I’m not 39 anymore.
My pal Janelle from Riverbend Gardens scored this Kimchi Blue skirt – it was perfect on her!
Janelle looked like an Amazonian goddess in these wedges but left them behind.
However, she didn’t leave in the dress she wore to the Boutique. It was that kind of sale.
This vintage dress is a one-of-a-kind score and fit Alex from the Edmonton Journal perfectly!
Seeing it on her made me realize it could never work for anyone else!
My favourite moment of the day was seeing Jodie from the Edmonton Journal in this vintage Ungaro silk dress.
Every detail of this dress is stunning, right down to the buttons!
I would wear this with strappy sandals or nude pumps or coloured pumps!
I would dress it down with a belt or let it flow in all its Parisian wonderfulness!
All in all, I couldn’t have asked for a better day! Thanks again to everyone who came out to support Sister Thrifters!
