Well, it all started out with the jumper that I bought at the Country Living Fair in September for my granddaughter, Elylah. I was so drawn to the colors...and then I had the idea to thrift shop for the other grandkids, the three boys, to find outfits to coordinate with the "inspiration" piece! I've purchased new outfits for all of them each year for Christmas, but the thrill of the hunt, plus the economy in general, pulled me to the thrift shops this year. Even though Elylah's outfit is new, I did find a pair of new looking black patent leather shoes with a strap and a little Cuban heel on them for $2. I just forgot to take a picture of them!
I felt extremely fortunate to find this brand new looking sweater for my oldest grandson, Deacon for $2. It is a high quality, dressy looking pullover. Then the search was on for pants and a shirt...
I found these black wide-wale cords with a cuff, and this black and white dress shirt in size 5, both by Gymboree, and both brand new looking, for a total of $8.
For Deacon's little brother Owen, I spotted a nice pair of black cords by Healthtex, the vest and white dress shirt, in size 3T, all for $3.75!
Last, but not least, and carrying through with the corduroy theme and the color scheme, I found this Gymboree shirt and Okie-Dokie corduroy pants for Ethan in size 2T for a total of $3.
I'm so excited we will all be together next week for Thanksgiving, and I've already made an appointment with Picture People to have a professional photo shoot of all of us! The 6 adults are on their own to choose their coordinating outfits...but I had a lot of fun thrifting this year.
Everything is washed, ironed, and ready to go! What do you think?
