100% Thrifted Pick of the Week (10.21.08)

take a walk in the woods, originally uploaded by Candi Mandi.
This is pure 70’s album cover goodness! I love it all, from the outfit to the vintage photo treatment. The mood is gorgeous… a contemplative walk alone in the woods, surrounded by the beauty of nature, birds singing, sun filtering through trees. Just a pretty girl, a lovely dress, an awesome pair of boots, and that shawl… oh, how I love that shawl… per-fection :)

Maybe it’s the album cover reference, but Candi Mandi is reminding me a little bit of Cher back in the early days when she still looked natural and beautiful:

missa, i wish i weren't so camera shy, otherwise i'd hop on this group. although i don't know that i could say my outfits are 100% thrifted, but i always have at least something. and i can't pull together these great outfits. so yeah i shouldn't join.(i'm a negative nancy today!) i don't know what the point of that was - anyway - i put my purple coat up today - i think you had asked about it...

Hello! I'm coming out of lurkdom! haha What a shock to look on my bloglines and see me. And that Cher picture- I suppose I am subliminaly influenced by her, I used to spend afternoons as a child watching the Sonny and Cher show. (granted, when I was a child, it was on TV Land!) :)
