thrift star of my heart…

thrift star of my heart…

i’ll tell you what happened.

with visuals, even, because visuals make the world go round.


i was lurking on the inter-web, trying to hide from responsibility, and doing other mature things like that, and i stumbled upon this picture:


it was on a blog somewhere.  it had no link, credit, or any of that other good stuff that i need when i decide it’s time to internet-stalk someone with fantastic style.

and you know what happened then?  i had a mission.

i used deductive reasoning to make this list, which would enable me to narrow down my search through the oh, maybe 90  to 91 billion people who use the internet on a regular basis, and make my chances of finding out who this girl is a tad more likely.


(the list)

-she is very well dressed.

-she is posing.  quite comfortably.  like, maybe she’s done this type of thing before.


armed with this thorough outline, i deduced that she must be findable somewhere on flickr…  hmm…  wardrobe_remix perhaps?  

lucky for me, this photograph turned out to be about 5 days old, meaning i only had to spend about an hour and a half sorting through other fashionable ladies and gents to find her.

her name is dixie lux, and she holds the key to my heart.


(also, on a completely un-related and entirely random note, i’m thinking it’s about time someone does something about bringing back the “costume change.”  as in, “yes, i’m changing my outfit again, that was my breakfast ensemble.  have some tea and calm yourself.  i’ll be back downstairs in 20 minutes.”)

i’m thinking that someone might have to be me…

  • Costume changes?! the perfect excuse to own and wear even more shoes and accessories! You lead, I’ll follow.

  • Dixie Lux is amazing. I’ve never seen an old-fashioned underwear inspired outfit look so wonderful!

  • Skylar! :]

    AHHH i want to eat those pants!

    the link isn’t working.

  • no joke. when i was a kid my mom would limit how many outfits i could don on any given day to two (except, i believe, sundays which counted for three cause the dress to sunday school was not elected by me even though i loved wearing it)…. anyway, she said that i would announce i was going upstairs to play in my room by myself and she soon learned i was sporting a whole OTHER outfit in there and then changing back before going downstairs as to not *technically* break the rule – if she didn’t see me in the other outfits they didn’t count -see?! brilliant!
    true story.
    i’m the queen of costume changes to this day – my friends make fun of me cause i’ll stop by home to make a costume change between dinner and the bar using the excuse that i have to let the dog out!

  • esoterica

    It’s cute, but I can’t help but think of the Peter Pan guy.

  • …so you actually found her !? That’s amazing.
    And the link isn’t working :(


  • Mmm, yes, me too with the constant outfit changes. I always need newness.
    And yeah, the link goes to nowhere.
    Sooo when are you going to post pics from the clothes swap?

  • She has stolen my heart…And I usually love what i wear so much, I wouldn’t want a costume change. If I do change clothes, it’s usually because i didn’t like my outfit.

  • What would you call the style of her bangs – the opposite of a widow’s peek? A widow’s plummet? They are cool….

  • Nicole

    oh yeah, She’s adorable. She’s been posting on the LJ Fruits group lately.

  • Love the bloomer pants!

  • She is so striking and original. Such an inspiration!

  • To be accurate this Microsoft Dot Net Framework is an excellent
    collaboration of several web alternatives and traditional
    Microsoft technology. 3D Skyrocket stands out from other
    fireworks wallpapers because is uses Open GL for the visuals.
    But PDF allows image data to be stored in external files by the use of external streams or Alternate Images.´s last [type]
