the green with yellow flowers is oblong like a regular winter scarf, while the other 3 are square. after washing just now the quarter folds didnt quite come out... but i guess thats why jesus invented the ironing board. hopefully i dont melt anything by mistake. and the red one does say christian dior.. for $.99? it smelled like old lady so it may in fact be legit designer. but i love the itty bitty paisley border. i could explain how it is actually a simplified fractal pattern.. but no one cares. honest.
the blue sweater is massively oversized and perfect to wear with leggings. the floral thing likewise is a lane bryant xxl racer back tanktop that is about tunic-sized. i knotted the straps and with a cami or bandeau underneath is ready for long island spring to arrive. the other 3 pieces are skirts. green: polyester faux silk. blue: wool blend. red: wool/poly blend. of course being "vintage" style the green and blue skirts [size 10] are going to need some alterations. ie elastic waistband about 2" further down than the existing waistband. the red skirt is a 14 and fits comfortably at the hip.
and i found a 2-tier dessert/sandwich/fruit/veggie plate for $7! frosted/patterned glass with silver tone metal pieces instead of the usual tack brass! perfect for our party on saturday! heres hoping it comes apart for easy storage..
