Grace, thats what it is! A Love Story. I hope Im not a giant relationship idiot!


I love the whole package, tights, perfect sweater, skirt, boots! I long for those outfits on a cool fall day. Bravo Sista!


I want that skirt! And those boots! Well, the whole outfit would be great, actually. Nice job!


She probably loves these boots more than me. Not kidding.

miss chris

Oh honey. Im quite sure there was a dream sequence when I met you again for the first time. Yours is a Barry Manilow.


I think I HAD those boots, mine were new from the store-
circa somewhere around 1979-ish.....!! I no longer have them. They wouldn't fit anyhow, my feet are bigger now! ha! They look real cute on you!

You're killing me with the fabulous outfit and boots. But you know that. I'm glad your first wearing of them didn't give you hepatitis after all. ;)

miss chris

Mary, you did??!! How fun to be able to put a date on them. I was thinking 70s. :) xo

miss chris

Sarah, ha!!!! Me too!!!


I just saw a skirt like this in our thrift store. Should have bought it! Love the boots! What a find!


Yep, I did. I wore them with jeans tucked inside!

I love what you've done with the skirt! And the boots are an amazing find. Well done. :)


I love vintage plaids and that shortened skirt looks awesome.

The boots! OH the boots.

And now I'm on the hunt for a plaid skirt. ;)


Fryes, secondhand? What are you, some sort of Thrifting Freak of Nature?! That is so not even right! I am so jealous!


Thanks for sharing your story about the boots and the skirt. Love them both. I too have a pile of things for me that need revamping! Great site.
