Thrift shopping: dressed up, dressed down.


fashion with compassion

The splendour of the blossoms have come, trees and shrubs garbed in delightful colours. Northern Gold Forsythia has prolific yellow flowers, the same shade as in my blouse that I bought in a thrift shop in Seattle.

The blouse is a slightly peplum style with bell sleeves. It’s pieced together with lace, chiffon and sheer fabric, in colours of orange, beige, brown and northern gold, just like the blossoms. The little orange buttons are covered with fabric.

Dressed down with brown corduroys for a casual country road walk …

Dressed up with a handkerchief skirt (also thrifted) to go dancing …

I love it when something I buy goes with something I already have, especially when I didn’t even know it would.

The colours in the skirt match the colours of this blouse. There’s a subtle leopard pattern in this print and so I wore my animal print necklace, made in Canada.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
