Must be the season of the witch

Cardigan (Beige Oversized Chunky Knitted Cardi): thrifted vintage
Dress ($5 Granny's Floral Dress): Ally, $4.99
Shoes: New Look, $19.90
Wishbone Necklace: Louisa, $3
Victorian-inspired Charm Bracelet: Diva, $5

Remember about the Mushroom Pickings bag that I made a short while ago? I said that I was making it for a friend. It was her birthday party last Friday and it was a birthday tea party! Yayy. I love tea parties.

The $5 dress + belt
Anyhoo, this is what I wore to the tea party. I don't usually wear dresses, but I have to confess that I have a couple of them lying in my wardrobe. Yes, I have a couple of dresses that I bought over a year ago which I have NOT worn at all. I'm just waiting for the right occasion to wear them. And guess what, this is a dress that I bought just a few days before the party. :P

As I have mentioned, I remix my wardrobe all the time. (Funny how I have new, unworn dresses in the wardrobe huh?) But I think I forgot to mention that I am also quite a frugal shopper. I love exploring shops with the big "SALE" signs plastered all over the glass windows. Seriously, you never really know what you're going to find. Take this dress for example. It was on sale for just $5 (or rather, $4.99). $5! $5! Can you believe it? I couldn't at all, especially after trying it out in the fitting room. How can such a lovely dress be reduced from $27.99 to $4.99? How can a dress of such incredible marked-down price still be available in my size!? All the forces of the Universe must have come together in an unprecedented event of the millennium on that magical day. Seriously, I don't reckon I'd score such a deal again in the near future.

I felt like a witch that day wearing my magical 'SALE' dress, wishbone necklace and charm bracelet. Come to think of it, I bought ALL of them when they were on sale. I try to be streetwise. :P

My wishbone necklace

1 <3 charm bracelets!
I didn't take a lot of pictures with the people there because I didn't know a lot of people there (at least at the start of the party), and I was stuffing my face with food the whole time. (Also, my hair was in a less-than-ideal state that day)

The birthday 'cake'

Macaroons in autumn colours

Come to think of it... I didn't try this! T_T

Little Teacup sets made from various sweets <3 boy, this was reaaaally sweet.
All right, stop staring at the sweets! (n_n)
