Outfits, a cooking first & a couple thrift purchases

Since the beginning of this year I have been wearing faux fur like a crazy woman. The above pic is my newest one which is my first (non vintage)

I ordered it on clearance from Forever 21 I paid $38.00.

When I bought this little white one for $1.00. I was not sure how much I would end up wearing it. But I am thrilled I did purchase it because I love it and wear it at least once a week.

I pretty much feel like a VIP when I wear this fuzzy one out and about.

Yesterday I wore this blue homemade house dress I purchased from an estate sale in the summer. You would expect I was going somewhere slightly important... BUT NAHHH! I wore it to go take a visit to Colonel Sanders. Yes I got dressed up to get lunch from Kentucky Fried Chicken. *LOL*

A couple days back we had a family lunch with my Parents, Brother & Grandparents. The place we went to was a Chinese / Malaysian / Thai food Restaurant. (Lets just say I SCREAMED when I seen this lobster on a table.)

One of the first things I made to eat this year was enchiladas.

I had never made them before. And I ADORE Mexican food. So I thought I would give it a try. I found a recipe online and gave it a go.

*Rolled and ready for sauce and cheese*

*The finished product*

*lol* @ my messy hair... But you can see the PROUD look on my face getting my picture with them... before they went in the oven.

Now for two thrift store purchases that excite me

*SiGh* "ooooooOoOOoOhhHh"

My amazing caramel drizzle milk glass party platter

(Apparently made by Hazel Atlas)

"DEAR HECK" I love this thing. I have it all planned out..

Plan A: Celery, Broccoli, Carrots & Green Peppers in the dishes around and dip in the middle.

Plan B: Pretzels, Peanuts, M&M'S, Cheese puffs and corn nuts in the middle.

What's this?? Fancy Contraption

It's some fabulous Lady Ellen curlers

aren't they groovy?

I was shocked they still had the little cardboard card the clips were fastened too way back when. I want to give these a try real soon.

The last thing I have to tell you is... One of my very first thrift finds in 2012 was a LOBSTER t shirt. (I was completely shocked and in total dismay) I will surely take a pic the first time I wear it. *It is flipping GREAT*

Bye for now

  1. I'm surprised that lobster didn't end up accidently in your handbag ha ha. I have coat envy, sadly it never gets cold enough here to wear them. You must take a pic when you try out those curlers. SO CUTE! xx

  5. From one faux fur addict to another - I salute you! I LOVE your leopard print, love love love I tell you!
    Your enchilladas look delicious, I think you should invite us all over for dinner. And you can use your party platter (didn't know that's what they are called) for hors d'ouevres. (Probably spelt that wrong...)
    And those curlers are the cutest set EVER! Even if you never use them, though of course you should, they would look fabulous just sitting in their case on Hazel.
    Good work, Miss Coco! xxxxxxxx

You are styling those babies up hon and I totally approve of dressing up to pick up some takeaway - big tick in the box there!!! Lobster!!!!! It looks like a hat! Want it! And OMG the curling set with the original daisy clips!! A girl could keep her curlers in and shop with style:)) xoxo

  19. Oh wow, those curlers are so cute! I love your white faux fur too ($1 - amazing!). It's funny how you never know how much you will wear something or if it will become a favourite.
