Last summer, Katie and I were roaming around the Fells Point Antique Market when she spotted a set of four antique brass bells that she absolutely adored.
Katie really likes how each bell is unique (different lady, different dress). They can sit together as a heterogenous set (as I’ve placed them in this photograph), or be individually situated in different places around the apartment, as Katie has done.
The price? $20 for the set! A great bargain. I just love brass accents.
It’s hard to place the time period…perhaps 18th century? Comment if you have any ideas about the origin of these bells!
During my beach vacation, I visited the outlet shops and got some really great stuff…at a steal!
A few bargain highlights:
From Old Navy outlet: basic tank tops, $8 each (one white, one black, and one teal)
From LOFT outlet: Pair of casual jeans for $22, scarf for $16 (They were having a 40% off sale, and I ended up signing up for the rewards card, which meant another 15% off!)
I absolutely love the floral print on this scarf. It’s super lightweight, which makes it great for the Spring and also the Summer –> Fall transition. It can easily be dressed up or down, depending on how it’s styled.
Here are the LOFT jeans. Lose-fitting, comfy, casual.
I wish there were outlets closer to my home, but my wallet is also grateful that there aren’t! 🙂
Just got back from my weekend beach trip! The weather was on our side and we had a great time.
Here’s a photo of Carisa modeling a cute red blouse that I picked up at a yard sale for $5.
I gave it to her for keeps because it definitely suited it her more than it did me. The fit and fabric render it dressy enough for a night out, but also casual enough for daytime wear (depending on how you style it). Definitely a steal! ❤
