tell myself

Today is Thursdays are for Thrifters.
I'm linking up to the blog Brass In Pocket.
My boots are thrifted. 

..."The gentle sweet singing
of leaves in the wind...

My skirt is thrifted. 

...Wild man's world is crying in pain,

Whatcha gonna do when everybody's insane?
I'm trying to show you I'm wearing 2 layers of tights.
A blue pair of tights on the bottom.
Then the coral stripe tights are on the top.
I'm showing the flower embroidery on the tank top,
and the little pocket detail on the skirt.

So afraid of wonder,

So afraid of you, 
What you gonna do?...

...I was a willow last night in my dream,

I bent down over a clear running stream,
I sang you the song that I heard up above".
Heart- Crazy On You

I'm girl crushing on Nancy Wilson. I want to play guitar like her, plus she's smoking hot. Her sister Ann Wilson has some major pipes. If only I could sing.
If you decide to watch the video, notice the male guitarist, (I'm pretty sure it's Roger Fisher), he's wearing white. I was getting vibes of a Karate Kid stripper.

Did they have band stylists in 1977?


  1. wow! Teddi, you're an awesome & great thrifter! lovely finds! ;)

  2. I love what you did with the tights! I definitely want to try putting 2 pairs together. cute boots! I love thrifting :)

  3. Blue and pink are really good combinations!

    Much love from the SABO SKIRT girls!

  4. such cute colours! btw, I like this idea to wear two pairs of tights when one of them is rather lacy and delicate or fragile. and the weather you have there.. well, it looks wonderful! we have constantly -20 degrees in the mornings..

  8. You are adorable....i am "crazy on you" ;)

  9. The combo of both coloured tights looks great!! And all those pastel colors.... so trendy this season!!!!

  10. cool song! stylists in 1977.. that's an interesting question and I'm going to get myself on it.. this is pretty intriguing, I'll let you know what I find out on my research ;)
    ..sure there must have been bands that had people styling up bands, but I don't think it was as major as it is now... the runaways got a lot of attention by their style when they were a band and as I've read.. each girl chose the outfit according to their personality.. they were pretty different if you take a look at photos and judge them by their outfits...
    This is fun... I'm on a new quest now.. I'll start my research...
    and thanks for your comment on my blog, I appreciate it.. always do!
    you do get the messages I try to say, or at least make me feel like it's ok to let my mind out that way... stay cool girl!

  11. Ahhh, I love the combo of striped skirt and striped tights! I've gotta try that!

  12. cute idea to layer those tights, and i'm digging the boots! it's hard to find boots with a shorter shaft height. these look perfect!
